Title JALC Radio - Tap Meets Flamenco
Season 16, Episode 11
Airdate 16/11/2008
Hosted by Carla Cook
When pianist Jelly Roll Morton famously discussed the “Spanish tinge” in jazz, he was referring to the range of Afro Latin rhythms. But jazz pianist Chano Dominguez) – who grew up with flamenco in southwestern Spain – casts his music with a truly Spanish tinge. Dominguez has attracted the attention of Wynton Marsalis, who had found “flamenco jazz” captivating, but very challenging to play. So he commissioned a new work from Dominguez.
