SALSA...WHITE SAUCE*...AND THE BLUES

Salsa It is the most soloistic recording the band has done to date, and hopefully, when you listen to the recording, you will understand why. This CD was created because of the convergence of an incredible amount of solo talent in the jazz band. The Jazz Band is indebted to Miguel's Cocina, the local favorite at Point Loma, for their incredible food, and especially their white sauce. A copy of the recipe is included in the CD case.
