Poncho Sanchez and Terrence 2011 record, Chano y Dizzy, celebrates Dizzy Gillespie and his groundbreaking music with Chano Pozo. Chano and Dizzy were instrumental in the development of Afro-Cuban jazz, fusing Cuban rhythms with American jazz. This record is incredible all the way through. I’m definitely partial to latin jazz, and NO ONE does it better than Poncho Sanchez. Add trumpet superstar Terrence Blanchard into the mix, and you have one INCREDIBLE record. If this record doesn’t make you want to get up and dance, then either you need some salsa dancing lessons or there is definitely something wrong with you! If you like latin jazz, this is a must have in your collection.
