For more than three decades as both a leader and a sideman, conguero 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. His influences are numerous, but among the more prominent figures that inform his music are two of the primary architects of Latin jazz conga drummer and composer Chano Pozo and trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie.

His latest CD, Choices, was released by Concord Jazz in 2009 to widespread critical acclaim.These two musicians were the pioneers of what is now known as Latin jazz, says Sanchez.
