Antonio Sanchez & Migration

  • Jazz Standard 116 East 27th Street New York, NY, 10016 United States (map)

Shows at 7:30pm and 9:30pm nightly

Four–time GRAMMY Award winner Antonio Sanchez has been hailed by critics and fellow musicians as one of the most talented drummers, bandleaders and composers of his generation. After moving to New York in 1999 after graduating from Berklee College of Music and the New England Conservatory, he performed and recorded with such jazz leaders as Chick Corea, Michael Brecker, Gary Burton and Toots Thielmans. As a sideman Sanchez has been featured on over a hundred albums – including eight releases with guitarist Pat Metheny, three of which have won GRAMMY Award. As a leader, he’s released four critically acclaimed albums; The Meridian Suite (Cam Jazz, 2015) recorded with his band Migration, brilliantly integrated composed and improvised music in a single album–length work. But Antonio Sanchez is best–known as the composer of original music for the 2014 film Birdman, directed by Alejandro Gonzales Iñárritu. Birdman won four Academy Awards and earned Sanchez a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Score, among other citations.
