Trane's Delight (CD)

On his first album in seven years, Latin Jazz legend Poncho Sanchez pays tribute to the legendary John Coltrane. Trane’s Delight features new tracks inspired by Coltrane as well as Latin-infused takes on classic works by the revered saxophonist. It’s a vibrant showcase of all the ways Coltrane influenced Sanchez, from boyhood to his now storied status as a GRAMMY-winning force to be reckoned with. Trane’s Delight effortlessly draws connections between classic tracks, new Sanchez originals, and the works of Coltrane and his collaborators. The album features Pancho Sanchez’s longtime band, Francisco Torres ( trombone/musical director), Ron Blake (trumpet/flugelhorn), Robert Hardt (saxophone), Andy Langham (piano), Rene Camacho and Ross Schodek (bass), and Joey DeLeon and Giancarlo Anderson (percussion).
