James Sanders & Conjunto to Release New Album: Evidencia

The new James Sanders & Conjunto album is almost here! Celebrate the release of Evidencia at Constellation Chicago on February 11, 2022

The new James Sanders & Conjunto album Evidencia will be released in February of 2022. This album of originals was made possible by a #3arts crowd funding campaign and many donations from friends and followers.

This past [2021] summer, Conjunto [Leandro López-Várady; piano & arranger; José Rendon, conga; Luis Rosario, bongos; Steve Eisen, sax & flute; Jean-Christophe Leroy, drums; José Porcayo, bass and James Sanders, violin] debuted the new music live at the Chicago Latin Jazz Festival, and then headed into the studio a month later to get it all down on tape.

James Sanders & Conjunto emerged with 5 great tracks that included 4 of Sanders’ originals plus a contribution from Leandro. The band was incredible, disciplined in their approach yet also having the time of their lives.

You can join James Sanders & Conjunto at Constellation. Advance tickets are available at constellation-chicago.com. If you can’t make it to see us in person, you can watch a live stream of the show on Constellation’s YouTube Channel.
