Musical Instrument Museum - MIM says
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. For more than three decades as both a bandleader and a sideman, 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 over-twenty-year relationship with Concord Records has yielded two dozen recordings, a GRAMMY Award, and several GRAMMY nominations.

“As Elvis is to rock and James Brown is to soul, Poncho Sanchez is to salsa . . . particularly the congas.”—Los Angeles Times

“The Latin jazz of Poncho Sanchez rolls on like a well-oiled machine, showcasing the verities that have made him North America’s (if not the world’s) most popular conguero-bandleader.”—JazzTimes
