The very first two recordings that master conguero PONCHO SANCHEZ made for the Concord Picante label are now brought together in one specially priced package. These are the recordings - Sonando (recorded in 1982) and Bien Sabroso! (recorded in 1983) - that heralded the arrival of a new master in Latin jazz. And indeed, since the release of these two now-classic '80s recordings to the present day, PONCHO SANCHEZ has consistently proven himself the Keeper of the Flame and the heir to the thrones of such Latin jazz icons as Cal Tjader, Mongo Santamaria and Tito Puente.
