Grammy-winning conguero Poncho Sanchez will headline this year’s Jazz Under the Stars at MDC Kendall Campus with his exciting new project, Chano y Dizzy! His influences are numerous, but among the more prominent figures that inform his music are two of the primary architects of Latin jazz – conga drummer and composer Chano Pozo and trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie.

Joining Poncho will be Nicole Henry with her powerfully expressive voice that establishes her as a peerless interpreter of jazz and pop standards, transcending genre boundaries. As Jazz Times states, “She can sell a power ballad as well as Whitney, Diana and Patti…”
