Song of the Day - June 8, 2009
This week on Twitter, I'll be selecting a song that makes me think of summer each day through Sunday. Yesterday, I posted a sneak preview and today, I began in earnest with Soul Sauce as recorded by Cal Tjader. The link is to some TV performance of the tune, which was written by Dizzy Gillespie and Chano Pozo. Hard to believe a lad of Swedish ancestry could get a funky, slinky Latin groove on like that. My advice is to seek out Cal's piquant version Cal cut for the album of the same name on the Verve label and apply liberally to any festive occasion. Goes down smooth like your favourite ale, it do. Everybody: Guachi guaro!
