"...Sanchez plays with a simmering, persuasive subtlety on every tune, a master of contained rhythm..."
Jazziz - 12/95, p.90
"...In SOUL SAUCE: MEMORIES OF CAL TJADER, Sanchez brings the full heat of his hard-swinging octet to a hand-picked program of Tjader fare, evoking but not mimicking the master malleteer's velvety touch..."

On Soul Sauce, Poncho Sanchez pays tribute to his late boss and hero vibraphonist Cal Tjader. Ruben Estrada of the Estrada Brothers (who sounds remarkably close to Tjader on vibes) was added to Sanchez' octet for the special project. Among the highlights are "Soul Sauce," "Morning," and "Poinciana Cha Cha." Solos are taken by trumpeter Stan Martin, trombonist Alex Henderson, and Scott Martin on reeds, but Estrada often takes honors. Recommended. ~ Scott Yanow
