Sanchez Uses Full Orchestra on Next CD

Latin-jazz minded saxophonist David Sanchez (pictured) will release his seventh album, Coral, on Columbia Records on August 3, 2004. Coral is Sanchez’s first recording with an orchestra and features the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.

The nine-track release includes works by Brazil’s Heitor Villa-Lobos and Argentina’s Alberto Ginastera, as well as two classical-inspired works by Brazilian bossa nova legend Antonio Carlos Jobim. The album also features two original compositions by Sanchez himself and one by the session’s string-arranger and conductor Carlos Franzetti.
