GRAMMY® award-winner David Sánchez is recognized around the world as one of the finest saxophonists of his generation. His mastery of the instrument is undeniable and his sound unmistakable.
In a review, world-renown jazz writer and critic Howard Reich saluted the bandleader saying, “Sánchez’s prowess on saxophone is matched by the intellectual depth of his concept and compositions”. Reich has also noted “Technically, tonally and creatively, he seems to have it all”. Recordings such as “The Departure” (1994), “Sketches of Dreams” (1995), “Obsesión” (1998) and “Cultural Survival” (2008) showed Sánchez merging jazz syntax with the musical dialects of his native Puerto Rico and other Caribbean and Latin American sources.
The influences of Afro-Puerto Rican music can be clearly heard on his Grammy Award nominated recording “Carib” (2019). It presents original compositions inspired by traditional rhythms and melodies of Puerto Rico and Haiti. “Puerto Rican saxophonist long has stood at the forefront of digging deeply into Afro-Caribbean musical roots. “Carib” probes Puerto Rican and Haitians influences with extraordinary insight, Sánchez’s singularly plush tone on tenor intertwined with many rhythmic strands”, Chicago Tribune. The album was also nominated for the Latin Grammy award and the NAACP award.”
