Presented by the Musicians at play foundation and MEND
For more than three decades, Grammy Award-winning conguero Poncho Sanchez has stirred up a fiery stew of straightahead jazz, gritty soul music, and infectious melodies and rhythms from a variety of Latin American and South American sources. His influences are numerous, but among the more prominent figures that inform his music are two of the primary architects of Latin jazz – conga drummer and composer Chano Pozo and trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie. Musicians at Play Foundation and MEND present a special concert with Sanchez and his 10-piece band.
