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 Haitian 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.”
Classical guitarist Brian Luckett will perform at 7 pm on April 4th.
Brian Luckett has performed in solo and chamber music recitals throughout the United States. Brian has been featured in several programs on both NPR and Minnesota Public Radio and WABE in
Atlanta. He has premiered several new works for the guitar including a concerto and several large chamber works and has appeared with both regional orchestras and choirs.
In recent years, Brian has developed a passionate interest in Flamenco music and has been studying Flamenco guitar technique and performance. Focusing on Spanish repertoire for the guitar, Brian blends elements of the two, complementary genres.
