Combine the rhythms of Cuba, Africa and the Caribbean with the soul of Detroit, Philly and New Orleans, then add the exciting harmonies and improvisational elements of jazz, and you have a sound unique to all of Latin jazz—the sound of Poncho Sanchez. With Latin Spirits Poncho embraces all of his musical influences, resulting in one of his most eclectic and exciting recordings to date. Special guest Chick Corea lends his unmistakable jazz piano pyrotechnics to two selections, igniting the title track (a new composition penned by Corea specifically for this recording) and Wayne Shorter’s “Ju Ju” (which is propelled by an incendiary Afro-Cuban six-eight groove). Vocalist and harmonica ace Dale Spalding sits in too, firing up the party with some soulful blues and R&B stylings that meld perfectly with Poncho’s hard-grooving cha cha cha and mambo rhythms.
