About this Event

On his first new album in seven years, GRAMMY Award-winning conguero Poncho Sanchez celebrates the life and music of the iconic saxophonist John Coltrane. Trane’s Delight, out September 20, is a love letter from one musical pioneer to another and comes just in time for the late tenor titan’s 93rd birthday on September 23. To discuss the making of the new album with moderator Scott Goldman, The GRAMMY Museum will welcome Poncho Sanchez for an intimate program held in the Museum’s Clive Davis Theater. Following the discussion, Sanchez will perform a set of songs from the new album.

Poncho Sanchez was raised on an unusual cross section of sounds that included straightahead jazz, Latin jazz and American soul. By his teen years, his musical consciousness had been solidified by the likes of John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Cal Tjader, Mongo Santamaria, Wilson Pickett and James Brown. But although his influences are numerous, with icons such as Tjader, Santamaria, and Tito Puente even serving as mentors for Sanchez within his more than three-decade career, John Coltrane is among the most prominent figures to inform his music. With Trane’s Delight, Sanchez pays tribute to the late jazz legend with Latin-tinged reimaginings of Coltrane classics as well as new pieces composed in honor of the tenor titan, affirming Sanchez’s place at the forefront of Latin Jazz’s trailblazers.
