Take fiery Latin rhythms, intriguing jazz harmonies and add a whole lot of raw soul, and you have the unmistakable sound of Poncho Sanchez. Capture Poncho's red-hot brand of Latin jazz live in front of a packed house, and now you're really cookin'. Now you've got Latin Soul, the latest - and quite possibly the hottest - recording from the master conguero. "Conceptual understanding of music leads one to realize that rhythm, melody and harmony are extensions of the human soul. Poncho Sanchez has given to Latin jazz what Ghandi gave to peace and tranquility. Total love, commitment and understanding that has moved the soul of humanity into a state of unity. Bravo Poncho for taking us with you." - Edward James Olmos FEATURING: Poncho Sanchez - congas, vocals, percussion Ramon Banda - timbales, chekere Jose "Papo" Rodriguez - bongos, chekere, congas David Torres - piano, musical director Tony Banda - bass, chekere, background vocals Sal Cracchiolo - trumpet, flugelhorn Scott Martin - alto sax, tenor sax, baritone sax, flute Mike Whitman - baritone sax
