For 4 decades master conguero, salsa singer and Latin jazz band leader 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. It is with great pleasure that we welcome him back for his 3rd Shedd appearance.
The Poncho Sanchez Latin Jazz Band is Poncho Sanchez (congas/vocals), Joey De Leon (timbales), Rene Camacho (bass), Ron Blake (trumpet), Robert Hardt (alto and tenor saxophone), Francisco Torres (trombone), Giancarlo Anderson (bongos) and Andy Langham (piano).
