“In his live scoring of Birdman, Sánchez injects a vitality that maps out the emotions of the film’s characters with precision.” The Guardian (U.K.)


“One of the standout jazz drummers on the contemporary scene, a polyrhythmic ace attuned to the subtlest dynamic fluctuations.” The New York Times

fter the success of Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman, which won four Academy Awards including Best Picture, drummer/composer Antonio Sánchez performed his dramatic Grammy Award-winning score live around the world.
