The latest release from one of the world's most relentlessly exciting Latin jazz bandleaders; finds Poncho Sanchez turning Afro-Cuban Fantasy into a full-blown, full-color, vibrant sonic reality, as he seamlessly merges jazz harmonies, melodies and improvisation with his always irresistably danceable Afro-Cuban rhythms. It's become a welcome tradition for Poncho to feature a special guest artist on his recordings. And this time the master conguero shares the spotlight with a very special guest indeed - vocal diva.

One of Ponchos most fully realized and exciting recordings to date, Afro-Cuban Fantasy is an album that will have you dancing and singing.
