One of the world's hardest-hitting congueros and the relentlessly propulsive force in one of the tightest ensembles in the business, Poncho Sanchez is an irrepressible keeper of the Latin jazz flame.
And on Freedom Sound the flame burns brighter and hotter than ever, as Poncho delivers eleven more incessantly grooving tracks, each loaded with that distinctive, signature, soulful Poncho Sanchez Latin jazz sound. Add the talents of two very special guests -Wayne Henderson & Wilton Felder of The Jazz Crusaders - and you have a doubly exciting follow-up to Conga Blue (Poncho's best-selling album...so far.)
"If this is your first Poncho Sanchez album, I advise you to get another job because you're going to have to buy all of the other CDs just to catch up..."- Bill Cosby
