“Poncho Sanchez is a Latin jazz legend.”—Oakland Tribune

Grammy-winning conguero Poncho Sanchez’s music is a kaleidoscopic swirl of some of the hottest colors and brightest lights to emerge from either side of the border. At any given show and on any given record, fragments of Latin jazz, swing, bebop, salsa, and other deep grooves collide and churn in a fiery swirl, with results that are no less than amazing. A multi-talented trumpeter, percussionist, composer, and arranger, Ray Vega is a veteran of the bands of Tito Puente, Ray Barretto, and Mongo Santamaria, among others, and has released solo recordings to widespread acclaim including four-star Down Beat reviews. With congas, trombone, timbales, bongos, and more, these two forces of nature combine for a mesmerizing performance in what the Chicago Tribune calls “an exuberant but authoritative lesson in Afro-Caribbean jazz.”
