Chano Dominguez

Born:

Though the association of flamenco music and an instrument is primarily the guitar, Chano Dominguez has been steadily taking his jazz approach on the piano head on into the genre with brilliant results. "In jazz you improvise with a structure in the background and in flamenco [the improvisation] is part of the form. In flamenco, in a soleá, or in a bulera, the guitarist doesn't know what the cantaor is doing until the moment comes, and the cantaor doesn't know the falseta (variation, or melodic phrase, interspersed between successions of chords) that the guitarist is going to play for him." Chano Dominguez is one of the jazz musicians that have been "recruited" by flamenco, although, at least in this instance, Chano had already had flamenco training, as the guitar was the first instrument that he learned to play, by ear

Read "Hard Bop Still Cookin’ - Terell Stafford, The Cookers, Aaron Diehl, Chano Dominguez, Poncho Sanchez" reviewed by Russell Perry


Since the 1950s, there have consistently been players who found in Hard Bop a comfortable place to return to, even as the focus of the music ebbed and flowed. Perhaps, this is because so many heroes of modern jazz created the music that defined the genre, players like Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Freddie Hubbard, Wayne Shorter, ...

New Bojaira: Zorongo Blu

Read "Zorongo Blu" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


La relazione tra jazz e flamenco ha avuto varie declinazioni. Eccettuando gli estemporanei antecedenti di Miles Davis e di John Coltrane, il primo a inaugurare proficuamente la sintesi è stato Pedro Iturralde nel 1967 con Flamenco Jazz: un condiviso impianto modale legava la chitarra di Paco De Lucia ad assoli di vari jazzmen (tra cui il ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
