2014 was a great years for the mexican drumers, director, conductor Antonio Sánchez, who won the Golden Globe price for the best soundtrack of Birdman by Alejandro González Iñárritu. He has been the drummer of choice for 20 time Grammy winner Pat Metheny and has been part of virtually every project the famed guitarist has put together since 2000. They’ve recorded 8 albums together and 3 of them have been awarded the Grammy.
Sánchez regularly collaborates with some of the today’s most prominent jazz musicians such as Joshua Redman, Chris Potter, John Patitucci, Danilo Perez, David Sanchez, Paquito D’Rivera, Kenny Werner, Marcus Roberts, Avishai Cohen, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Dianne Reeves, Miguel Zenon, Scott Colley, Dave Samuels, Luciana Souza, Billy Childs, and Claudia Acuña just to name a few.
One of his most famous release is The Meridian Suite. This album is Sanchez’s most ambitious compositional project to date which features a long form 60 minute uninterrupted piece of music. He explores the concept of Meridians: imaginary lines that divide our planet, our universe, our bodies and that allow us to accurately calculate time.
Each section of the Suite is relevant in some way or another to these complex subjects and musically attempts to portray his vision of how these imaginary lines flow through us, guide us and influence us in the most subtle and profound ways.
