Antonio Sanchéz is well known for his extraordinary approach to playing the drums. The New York based musician has toured with various world famous jazz artists for many years, but never stopped looking for new inspiration for developing his own ideas.
In 2014 he even composed the original film score for the movie “Birdman”, which went on to win a Grammy award.
While working as a side man, he always kept on writing his own music and releasing albums himself. Beside those albums he also became a well known educator and clinician, often covering the topics of soloing on the drums and implementing latin patterns into your playing.
During the Paris drum show 2019, we had the chance to meet this outstanding musician and talk to him about his own music, his influences and his approach to soloing. The advice he gives there and the ideas that he mentions are really powerful and easy to understand at the same time.
