La pàgina web del Jazz Standard de Nova York ja anuncia els concerts de clausura del 41è Voll-Damm Festival Internacional de Jazz de Barcelona, i la venda i la reserva d'entrades ja ha començat a bon ritme.

Heus aquí com anuncia el cèlebre club del carrer 27 els concerts de Chano Domínguez:

«And now (as the saying goes) for something completely different: A stunning new interpretation of the 1959 Miles Davis classic Kind of Blue, as performed by a unique flamenco/jazz combo under the direction of the brilliant pianist Sebastian Domínguez Lozano, better known as Chano Domínguez. Born 49 years ago in the Spanish city of Cádiz, Chano began flamenco guitar studies at age eight, then switched to keyboards when he formed the band Caí, which fused traditional Andalusian roots with progressive rock. Beginning with the formation of his own trio in 1992, Chano has experimented endlessly with the alchemy of jazz and flamenco on such albums as Hecho a Mano and Imán. This is the final concert series of the Voll-Damm Barcelona International Jazz Festival, proudly co-presented with Jazz Standard. Don’t miss the Chano Domínguez Flamenco Quintet in Kind of Blue – and somewhere, even Miles will be smiling.»
