    With one or two exceptions, conga player Poncho Sanchez's entire recording career as a leader has been documented by Concord. In 1998, Concord celebrated its 25th anniversary with a Jazz Heritage series of samplers. The Sanchez CD has a selection apiece from 11 of his releases, including guest appearances by Mongo Santamaria (on "Watermelon Man"), Freddie Hubbard, Eddie Harris ("Cold Duck Time"), Tito Puente, and the former Jazz Crusaders front line (Wilton Felder and Wayne Henderson). Among the other highlights are "Papa Gato," "A Night in Tunisia," "Jumpin' with Symphony Sid," and Cal Tjader's "I Showed Them." A worthwhile introduction to the exuberant and accessible music of Poncho Sanchez. ~ Scott Yanow
