Sergio Pamies

Born in Granada, Spain in 1983, Pamies has published three albums under his name; Entre Amigos (PSM, 2008), Borrachito (Bebyne Records, 2011), and What Brought You Here? (Bebyne Records, 2017). Critics have acknowledged his talent for composition, the lyrical qualities of his playing, and his natural and spontaneous ability to fuse the traditional jazz language and flamenco music of his childhood. Pamies has performed at festivals in Austria, Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Colombia, Perú, China, Spain, and the United States. He has collaborated with outstanding artists, such as Christian Scott, Rubem Dantas, Antonio Serrano, Diego Amador, Pepe Luis Carmona “Habichuela” (all of whom collaborated in the making of Borrachito), Quamon Fowler, Horacio Fumero, Matthew Simon, Michael Miskiewicz, and Joan Albert Amargós. Besides leading his own projects, he has produced other artists such as Verso Suelto (Verso Suelto, Youkali Music 2016), Korean singer Roja (My Shining Hour, Mirrorball Music, 2013), and The Zebras (Flamenco Jazz Project, North Texas Jazz, 2011). Pamies received his bachelor’s degree in Jazz Piano (Liceo Conservatory in Barcelona, 2007), and then moved to the United States to study with Stefan Karlsson and complete a master’s degree in Jazz Piano at the University of North Texas (UNT), where he was awarded “Outstanding Student” in 2011. Pamies finished his doctoral studies (DMA in Jazz Piano) in 2016

Ese cachorro está que muerde. Paquito d'Rivera, Borrachito 2011

Sergio Pamies, a young Andalusian pianist, makes this recording a great entry into Spanish discography. A Jazz record? Not only. Flamenco? Not only. Maybe we are talking about flamenco-jazz? Not exactly. This Borrachito goes beyond the mere juxtaposition of two genres (as we see too often). This record marks the concern of a musician who has bathed in flamenco music and cannot (and does not want to) discard it, as well as his attraction for the great music of the twentieth century, jazz. Patrick Dalmace, Jazz Hot Magazine (France) 2013

Pamies chooses elegance (above other qualities), displaying such a great ability at the level of the legends of Flamenco jazz and Latin jazz. Martí Farré, JAÇ Magazine (Spain) 2012

Flamenco and jazz interact, not just complementing each other, but melting together. January Ruiz, W1M World Music Magazine (Spain) 2012
