Almost 10 years since the release of Sauce1..No2 is released, a little late, apologies. It's a little more advanced in some ways than the 1st but has enough genuinely medium tempos to really develop some solid right-hand techniques with loads time for idea development. There are also some unusual ballads and a range of keys..track list below. All chords in various formats will be downloadable from the Sauce website. Some recommendations from Sauce1...

Can't wait for Sauce 2' STEVE BELL 'An old friend gave me The Sauce when I was about 14. From that, I taught myself the wonders of gypsy jazz. A few years on now, and I look forward to seeing what else I will learn with Sauce 2. What would I have done without The Sauce!'

A self taught guitarist, Dave Kelbie's first professional engagements were with the celebrated Gypsy guitarist from Holland Fapy Lafertin. He initiated the first European tour in 1989 with the quartet Lejazz and this partnership has lasted until recently with CD releases on Lejazzetal Records including 'Swing Guitars' and the highly acclaimed 'Hungaria' with tours as recent as 2004. Through his alliance with Lafertin have come performances with musicians such as Hungarian violinist Roby Lakatos, USA Clarinettist Bob Wilber, Bireli Lagrene and Lollo Meier. Until recently, the groundbreaking UK-based, multi-national Balkan music cooperative Szapora is perhaps his best known project. The band has received much praise for it's concerts Europe-wide and consistently featured some of the finest UK musicians such as Christian Garrick, Dylan Fowler, and Eddie Hession. Szapora has released three CDs on Lejazzetal. Kelbie continues to work in his own quartet with the great Angelo Debarre, the lyrical Lollo Meier, and UK legend John Etheridge. With his last project though, Evan Christopher's Django a la Creole, Kelbie has become one of the most sought after rhythm guitarists on the worldwide stage.
