Hop Sauce is an East Bay concoction of instrumental groove, funk and jazz, balancing improvisation with composition and a knack for fun, tasty jams. The core trio (Jeff Cleland on bass, Chris Gamper on drums and Jono Kornfeld on guitar) has a rich history of playing together going back nearly 30 years. Hop Sauce's first CD, "Le Tasty," (with guest keyboardist Simon Rochester) features their diverse compositional prowess blended with an obvious love for in-the-moment playing and nimble improvisation. Rotating guest saxophone players have been added to the current recipe - incorporating a voice-like dimension and flavorful zing to their sound.
