If music were about pictures, percussionist Poncho Sanchez’s music would best be described as a kaleidoscopic swirl of some of the hottest colors and brightest lights to emerge from either side of the border. At any given show, fragments of Latin jazz, swing, bebop, salsa, and other infectious grooves collide and churn in a fiery swirl, with results that are no less than dazzling. Sanchez grew up in a suburb of LA, where he was raised on an unusual cross section of sounds that included straight-ahead jazz, Latin jazz, and American soul. Whatever the genre, the mesmerizing array of sounds and colors from Sanchez’s youth have telegraphed across the decades and continue to inform his creative sensibilities to this day. His over 20-year relationship with Concord Records has yielded two dozen recordings, a Grammy Award, and several Grammy nominations.
