Juanito Pascual New Flamenco Trio with Tupac Mantilla and Brad Barrett

Virtuoso flamenco guitarist/composer/improviser Juanito Pascual has been called "one of the hottest flamenco guitarists in recent years" by National Public Radio, a major accolade which in this case is just the jumping off point for the Minneapolis native's musical style. His sound is a truly organic blend of a mastery of traditional and contemporary flamenco with his love of jazz, classical, rock, and more. A graduate of New England Conservatory's Contemporary Improvisation program (formerly Third Stream), he has spent the last 20 years forging a unique path fusing an array of influences into his flamenco-based vocabulary.

Pascual returns to the Regattabar presenting his latest project the Juanito Pascual New Flamenco Trio featuring two highly versatile and dynamic musicians, Grammy-nominated percussionist Tupac Mantilla (Julian Lage Group, Bob Moses, Kenny Werner) and bassist Brad Barrett (Jason Moran, Ran Blake). Fusing their distinct musical backgrounds with a palpable personal chemistry, the Trio has created a distinctive and exhilarating sound. Currently, they are producing their first CD, scheduled for release in fall of 2013.

Since the 2003 release of his debut solo recording "Cosas en Comun", Pascual's international touring schedule has brought him to venues including the Tanglewood Jazz Festival, New York's 92nd ST. Y and Blue Note Jazz Club, The Panama Jazz Festival and Madrid's renowned Casa Patas. He has performed with a lengthy 'who's who' of top flamenco artists from Spain and the U.S. in addition to collaborations with a diverse range of artists including Grammy-winning soprano Dawn Upshaw, bassist John Patitucci (of Chick Corea's Band), pianist Danilo Perez (of the Wayne Shorter Qt), percussionist Jamey Haddad (of Paul Simon's group), virtuoso guitarist Grisha Goryachev, and many others.

The last few times I caught this trio, it's been a great show. Come join us at Regattabar for this show, if there is enough interest, we may have a post-meetup nearby (John Harvard's has proven to be a great spot for previous Harvard Square meetups, so we may do that)

Tickets are $25 and can be bought here (and catch a video clip here also):

For those interested in group seating, please purchase your ticket, send me an email saying so, and make sure to include your full name so I can inform Regattabar, and do this by the end of the day, Wednesday May 8.

    Danny and others, I have already sent the list in, but if you still want to sit with the group, send an email with your full name or ticket order# to [masked] and just request to be seated in the group under my name. No guarantees, but they usually do a good job about it. Thx

    Just a reminder to get your tickets and email me by May 8, if you want to sit with the group. This is a popular artist here, so it is likely to sell out quickly!
