 As you have probably already heard, Amoeba is an official sponsor of the 54th annual Monterey Jazz Festival and is onsite with a Mini-Amoeba store! Tonight – Friday, September 16th at 8:00pm – we hostedPoncho Sanchez and Terence Blanchard Amoeba Music Monterey Jazz Festival the first of many of our scheduled signings and kicked it off with percussionist Poncho Sanchez and trumpeter Terence Blanchard!

Amoeba Music and the line of smiling fans were lucky to chat with Sanchez and Blanchard before they had to leave to gear up for their 11:00pm show on the Arena/Jimmy Lyons Stage where they will appear with their new project, Cubano Be Cubano Bop, a tribute to the legacy of the Original Conga King Chano Pozo and his co-conspirator in Latin jazz, Dizzy Gillespie.

Please check out this short video we made of the signing. It’s just like being there!
