Sands is a player with diversity. He has already enjoyed a remarkable career trajectory, touring and recording for many years with Christian McBride’s Inside Straight and Trio, as well as working with the likes of Gregory Porter, Geri Allen, Esperanza Spalding and so many more - playing International Jazz Day in Cuba as well as world renowned jazz festivals such as North Sea, Monterey, Newport, Montreux among others. He serves as the Creative Ambassador for the Erroll Garner foundation and is also the Artist in Residence for Monterey Jazz Festival for the second year running.

He was the FIRST young musician I’d met who had the drive, passion and skill of my peers like Roy Hargrove, Eric Reed, Greg Hutchinson and Antonio Hart. He’s only worried about being the best musician he can possibly be. He’s the ultimate professional.
