Angelica is a pianist who "improvises with crisp articulation and muscular command. Her chords, both dense and concise, offset free improvisations that reflect Ms. Sanchez’s careful attention to narrative clarity. She released a strong trio album, “Float the Edge,” full of intense power and swarming interplay." — NY Times.
Originally from Arizona, Angelica Sanchez has played with: Wadada Leo Smith, Paul Motian, Richard Davis, Susie Ibarra, Tim Berne, Mark Dresser, Ben Monder and many more. Sanchez leads many groups including a quintet featuring Marc Ducret, Tony Malaby, Drew Gress, and Tom Rainey. She was the 2008 recipient of the French/American Chamber Music America grant and the 2011 Rockefellers Brothers Pocantico artist residency.
