The Frostburg State University CES Jazz Club, sponsored by Kauffman Music, presents the Grammy award-winning David Sánchez Group on Saturday, Nov. 20, at 8 p.m. in the Cumberland Ballroom at Rocky Gap Resort and Lodge east of Cumberland.
Sánchez, a gifted tenor saxophone player, took up conga at age 8 and started playing the saxophone at age 12. His music incorporates Afro-Cuban rhythms with bebop. He studied along side jazz masters such as Kenny Barron, Ted Dunbar and John Purcell. Sánchez played with top Latin artists like Paquito D’Rivera and Claudio Roditi before eventually joining Dizzy Gillespie’s United Nation Orchestra. He has toured with the Phillip Morris Super Band, recorded with Slide Hampton’s Jazz Masters and headed his own sessions for Columbia. The David Sánchez Group won the Grammy for Best Latin Jazz Performance in 1997.
