Biography and commentary:

Born in 1951, Poncho Sanchez is a historical master of congas and Latin jazz, from Texan origine, who played with an impressive list of luminaries and his own bands. Poncho has marked the jazz by his Latin fusion hyper eclectic, in the footsteps of Mongo Santamaria, which he recognizes as his main inspiration. Poncho has won a Grammy in 1999 for his album "Latin soul".
