If we see the credits of the album 1st Intent we noticed a peculiar fact: all the instruments in the production were executed by Carlos Carlos Sanchez. This multi-instrumentalist, born in Miami of Puerto Rican parents, achieves a true jewel that plays with nuances coming from different rhythms. R & B, Salsa, Hip-Hop, Bomba, Funk, Salsa, and even Psychedelic Rock, are integrated into each song with an unparalleled ease. In the same way we listen to unedited themes, composed and arranged by the same portent of musico that received inspiration from Tito Puente and Ray Barreto.
Son of a multi-instrumentalist father, Sanchez debuted with 1st Intent, a production that I have with other musicians in the choirs: Ricky Luis Porrata, Dante Loaiza, Nestor Martínez and, of course, Sanchez himself.
In 2004, Carlos Sánchez left the State of Florida to study music in Puerto Rico with the goal of achieving a bachelor’s degree in Jazz Studies with concentration in Caribbean music of the Conservatory of Music of Puerto Rico. During this period of advanced studies, the young man perfected the technique of playing the trumpet, the piano, the timbales, the congas, the bongo, and began composing / arranging / interpreting his own music. Throughout his musical career, Carlos has shared the stage with many influential and legendary artists such as Tito Puente, Cheo Feliciano, Frankie Ruiz and Lalo Rodríguez, Julio Voltio, Tego Calderón, Vico C, N’Klabe, Marc Anthony, El Gran Combo of Puerto Rico, Giovanni Hidalgo, William Cepeda, Miguel Zenón, José Luis Quintana “Changuito,” among others.
