Antonio Sanchez provided the driving beat behind Pat Metheny's bands for many years. He could also be heard on the recordings of well-established artists like Chick Corea and Michael Brecker, as well as new talent like the saxophonists David Sanchez and Miguel Zenon. And he recently completed a tour with the singer Dianne Reeves. This incredible Mexican drummer is a much in-demand sideman whose percussion skills shine in greatly varying bands in the jazz world. The only thing missing from the illustrious career of this New York-based drummer was his own album. All this changed last year when Sanchez recorded Migration on the Italian label CAM Jazz with, among others, the lyrical horns of the tenor saxophonists Chris Potter and David Sanchez. Just like Jack DeJohnette, Sanchez started his career as a pianist which enabled him to develop an eye for the smallest of details.
