Vallejo Jazz Series Presents: Soul Sauce – It was when Drummer/percussionist Curt Moore, sitting in for drummer Vince Lateano with the Cal Tjader alumni band, Radcliffe, that he became indoctrinated to the style and intoxicating sounds of Tjader. Using the same instrumentation as Tjader’s band, Moore and vibe player Jon Eriksen formed Soul Sauce. The result is a rich, warm sound with beautiful grooves. Doing mostly jazz covers (Miles Davis, Ellington, Cole Porter, Gillespie) with new arrangements that seem to glide through the air, then cook on low flame before sizzling, Soul Sauce has most definitely inherited the qualities of the Tjader band. Listen to Eriksen’s terrific take on the Lonnie Hewitt tune “Alonzo” and the Tjader mystique will be evident.
