Poncho Sanchez

Ultimate Latin Dance Party

Concord Picante CCD2 - 2153 2

Poncho Sanchez, congas, lead vocals; Ramon Banda, timbales; Tony Banda, bass, background vocals; and far too many musicians to mention.

This is a double CD compilation culled from eighteen of the twenty CDs Poncho Sanchez made for Concord Picante. Latin dance party is exactly what it is; plenty of congas, bongos, timbales going for all they are worth in this bright upbeat set. The Jazz element is strong in the horn sections; tight, soaring trumpet solos, purposeful trombones and good, throaty saxophones offer us plenty of improvisation in the Latin style. This is music that will get you on the floor; whether it is a rumba, a cha cha cha, mambo or a funky blues, you will have to dance to it. This is happy music, carefully arranged and well executed; if you love Latin and need that background filled, this is for you.
