Poncho Sanchez and his Latin Jazz Band

“As Elvis is to rock and James Brown is to soul, Poncho Sanchez is to salsa” - Los Angeles Times

Grammy Award-winning conguero and bandleader Poncho Sanchez commemorates one of jazz music’s most famous and influential collaborations.

In 1947 bebop jazz trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie and the great Cuban drummer Chano Pozo came together to create the transformative recording CubanoBe, Cubano Bop. This revolutionary album almost single-handedly propelled Afro-Cuban sounds into the arena of serious music and instantly ensured the immortality of its creators.

Over 60 years later Poncho Sanchez – one of the top Latin jazz artists of our age – channels the rhythms and beats of the time in a tribute concert that crackles with all the energy and vibrancy of the original work. Join Sanchez and his sizzling band as they re-ignite the classics and set fire to the Town Hall stage with their own raucous Latin-jazz compositions.
