The Evolution of Antonio Sanchez

Antonio Sanchez drummer and composer has evolved superbly from sideman to leader. I am proud of his achievement and recognition. I have been a fan of Antonio Sanchez percussive style ever since I saw him drum live with The Pat Metheny Group on the Speaking of Now tour in 2002. He left a lasting impression on me the two times I have seen him perform with Pat Metheny.

I witnessed the movie Birdman last night. I was swept along again by Antonio Sanchez’s drum compositions. His sharp accent helped to transfix my attention to Michael Keaton’s dilemma.

Perhaps that was Director Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s intent. In any case it totally worked. I hope you get to experience the film and its incredible soundtrack. Be prepared for an exhilarating flight.
