The Chano Domínguez Quintent will be touring the West coast of the United. Acclaimed flamenco jazz pianist Chano Dominguez will be joined by bassist and composer Alexis Cuadrado, and drummer/percussionist Henry Cole, along with two renowned Spanish artists, singer Blas Cordoba an National Flamenco Contest winning dancer Daniel Navarro.
The quintet will revisit the music of Miles Davis through the prism of flamenco with selections from Domínguez’s Flamenco Sketches album that pays homage to Miles Davis through interpretations of his classic 1959 album Kind of Blue.
In addition to the West Coast dates, Chano will be performing with his trio at New York City’s High Line Ballroom as part of Blue Note Festival on June 26h. This lineup consists of Dominguez, Alexis Cuadrado and Henry Cole; and at the Montreal International Jazz Festival on June 28th, with Cuadrado, Cole, and New York City-based flamenco duo Ismael Fernandez (vocals) and Sonia Olla (dance).
Lastly, Domínguez will be releasing Chano & Colina, his latest recording for the Sunnyside label, on June 1st, 2018. The album captures Chano and his old friend and collaborator, Spanish bass virtuoso Javier Colina, live at the Sala de Camara del Auditorio Nacional de Música in Madrid in January 2017. It’s an intimate and beautiful record that invites the audience to listen in on the duo’s extraordinary, decades-long musical rapport.
