Psychedelic Blues is Poncho Sanchez’s new album and twenty-fourth recording on Concord Records. The album features a more Latin jazz influenced sound honoring the tradition of Sanchez’s earlier Concord recordings.
Psychedelic Blues is Sanchez’s tribute to the traditional Latin jazz roots and musical memories of his childhood. The album opens with the simmering “Cantaloupe Island,” a Herbie Hancock composition recast in a Latin jazz groove. The title track is a fast-moving mambo, originally written by Sonny Henry and arranged here by Francisco Torres.
