The years go by and this trio of aces still incarnates the most definitive proposition of renovated flamenco. Their music continues to be the most fertile experience local jazz can offer, as a result of the marriage between two musical languages —jazz and flamenco—, which have hundreds of years of diffuse and distant prehistory. The synthesis achieved is not based on an accumulation of ingredients, it’s more like a seamless combination. The two styles simply flow naturally under the inspiration of the three musicians. Jazzmen with flamenco hearts, or, if you prefer, flamenco artists with jazz technique.
Jorge Pardo came to the attention of Paco de Lucía when he was a member of Dolores in the 70s. This association —as in the case of bassist Carles Benavent— is responsible for the experienced expansion of the languages of these two musicians. And then, just when there was a need for another rhythmic artery, appeared Tino di Geraldo. From behind his drum set, Tino takes care of the interjections. The colours and melodic fragments are left to Jorge and Carles, who, while they develop their own individual activities, still get together with Tino to keep dazzling audiences with the flamenco scales that they merrily blend with rumbas and Mediterranean sounds. They are presenting their album “Flamenco Leaks”.
