Poncho Sanchez
Do It!
Concord Picante

By Eric Seyfarth

Published October 28, 2005

Conguero Poncho Sanchez continues his run with Concord Picante, a partnership that dates back to 1982. His latest, Do It!, also continues his multifaceted mixtures of Latin jazz, Afro-Cuban, salsa, bop, funk, and rhythm and blues. Known for ever-changing collaborations with the diverse likes of Mongo Santamaria, Tito Puente, Ray Charles, Freddie Hubbard, and Chick Corea. On this CD, Sanchez partners with Hugh Masekela and the high-octane horn section of Tower of Power. Included here are “Tin Tin Deo” a darkly Latin uptempo admixture featuring one of three songs where Sanchez takes lead vocals. The title track “Do It!” capitalizes on the crisp, layered horns of Tower of Power. Sanchez loosens up a bit with the funky “Squib Cakes,” complete with a righteous Hammond B-3 work, urban saxophone sensibility, and street-smart chorus. “Yo Quisiera” makes a straight Afro-Cuban run with meandering trombone work for contrast, and Sanchez laying down his flawless conga stylings, which also take center stage for the fluid and streamlined “African Flower.” Also included are the R&B deviations of  “Shotgun Slim” and the post-beatnik spoken word of “Child of the Earth.” All somehow diversely cohesive in the way only Sanchez can pull it off.
