Musicians at Play Foundation & MEND present
PONCHO SANCHEZ & his Latin Jazz Band
For more than three decades, Grammy Award-winning conguero Poncho Sanchez has stirred up a fiery stew of straight ahead 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 & MEND present a special concert with Grammy Award-winning Sanchez and his 10-piece band.
