Pablo Caminero Trio at Monterey Jazz Festival
Jazz band Pablo Caminero Trio will present their third album, “O.F.N.I., Objeto Flamenco No Identificado,” at Monterey Jazz Festival.
O.F.N.I. is the third album signed by double bass player Pablo M. Caminero. After recording Domestica, with which he started investigating the production process, and El Caminero, with which he began as a leader of his own quintet, O.F.N.I. means his debut as a composer for a jazz flamenco quintet. In this third recording, written in its entirely by Caminero, the double bass acts as a connecting element. The form remains jazz in relation to the repertoire and improvisation, although it brings flamenco language closer, relying on flamenco bases and patterns.
On the stage, we can feel enthusiasm and respect for leading a project made up of some of the most recognized international jazz members; musicians with an open interpretation of contemporary jazz, both European jazz and American jazz, and a deep approach to Flamenco.
The pianist Moises Sanchez and the drummer Borja Barrueta, together with Caminero, give shape to a compact ensemble in which all the musicians contribute and create on Caminero’s compositions.
