Antonio Sanchez: Migration

Mexico-born drummer Antonio Sanchez, 37, uses his broad range of musical instruction and an enviable cast of musicians to create a compelling solo debut with Migration. His studies include those at the National Conservatory of Music in Mexico City, the New England Conservatory, and Berklee. His musicians are Pat Metheny, Chick Corea, saxophonists Chris Potter and David Sanchez, and bassist Scott Colley.
