Vitello's presents legendary Latin jazz percussionist Poncho Sanchez. Having released over 24 albums, Poncho Sanchez and his band bring a live show of pure energy to the stage. Sanchez's signature combination of salsa, straight ahead jazz, Latin jazz and soul is nothing less than dazzling. If music were about pictures, percussionist Sanchez's sounds would best be described as a kaleidoscopic swirl of some of the hottest colors and brightest lights to emerge from either side of the border. His latest album, with Terrence Blanchard on trumpet, is Chano Y Dizzy. Learn More
