Juanito Pascual New Flamenco Trio
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.
I have to admit that I am not a big Flamenco music fan. By chance I happen to have seen Juanito Pascual and was just blown away. A group of us went to see the trio last year and again the concert was just awesome.
This event is scheduled with a few different meetup groups so we should have a good time.
Ticket price is $25 and can be purchased at the Regatta Bar Web Site
