Legendary jazzman Poncho Sanchez will be at the Kirk Douglas Theater on June 25, 2016 at 8 pm, care of The Jazz Bakery. For more than three decades as both a leader and a sideman, conguero Poncho 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 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.
