Chano Dominguez at DC Jazz Festival
SPAIN arts & culture, in association with the DC Jazz Festival, presents pianist Chano Dominguez in concert.
Pianist Chano Dominguez’s style is rooted in an unusual integration between the rhythms and language of jazz and flamenco, placing him in the top circle of musicians practicing this art-form. His interpretive talents have led him to collaborations with stellar artists such as Wynton Marsalis, Jack DeJohnette, Paquito de Rivera, Herbie Hancock, Paco de Lucia, and Enrique Morente, among others.
The Wall Street Journal has this to say about Chano upon the release of his Flamenco Sketches album: “Chano Dominguez is playing these melodies with more beauty and imagination than virtually anyone since Miles Davis & Bill Evans.”
His music has also been featured by various big bands and orchestras including the Orquesta Nacional de España, the WDR Big Band, and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. Chano was recently nominated for his fourth Grammy for his release featuring the cantaor Blas Cordoba, called Bendito.
