Join Poncho Sanchez as he stirs a fiery stew of jazz, soul music and infectious melodies and rhythms from a variety of Latin American and South American sources. Two of the primary architects of Latin jazz-conga drummer and composer Chano Pozo and trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie— are Sanchez’s major musical influences. Get ready to groove as Sanchez and his band transform the Ordway into a Latin jazz nightclub with the congas, trombone, timbales, bongos, and more!
