POSTPONED! PONCHO SANCHEZ POSTPONED: NEW DATE TBA

Sol Santa Fe Patio Stage

For more than three decades as both a leader and a sideman, 
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. Sanchez pays tribute to these two titans on his 2011 album, Chano y Dizzy!, produced by Sanchez and Francisco Torres, his long-time band member (trombone/vocals).
