I loaned my vinyl copy of Cal Tjader’s album Soul Sauce to a friend a few weeks ago and since then I have seen/heard it seemingly everywhere (including one of my SIRIUS shows). Must be the Tjader collective consciousness at work. You know how he do.
The vinyl copy I own was originally my fathers from his college days. I randomly stumbled upon it while in high school and was immediately struck by the album’s cover art. Look at it – It’s damn near perfect, and that’s even before you hear the music enshrouded within.
