(music by Chano Domínguez)
A new collaboration between flamenco-jazz piano legend Chano Domínguez and Spanish Brass.
This project was born from a meeting between Spanish Brass and Chano Domínguez, who attended a concert by the quintet near Seattle. A magical connection emerged between the musicians that led them to decide to share creative experiences on stage.
Chano has composed a new piece for brass quintet, piano and cajón flamenco entitled “Never Settle for the Oyster Light.” The rest of the program includes other pieces by Chano including “Solo con verte,” “Mi Prima de Riesgo,” “De Cadi a New Orleans” and “Rumba Pa Jerry” that he composed for other artists such as Wynton Marsalis and Jerry González and has now arranged for Spanish Brass, piano and percussion. All of which makes this show, entitled Puro de Oliva, the perfect ambassador for the music and culture of Spain. A special guest artist is Bandolero or Pablo Domínguez on the “cajón flamenco.”
