Friends, just wanted to share with you that I have a new CD coming, it's called Noneto Ibérico and it's my fourth CD as a leader and the follow up to a much-lauded recording, Puzzles. This music was premiered in October, 2009, and its a nine-movement piece performed by nine musicians, blending the traditional song forms of Spanish Flamenco music with the contemporary improvised music idiom, creating a unique and groundbreaking genre that goes a step beyond previous blends of flamenco and jazz. The date release for Noneto Ibérico is set for February 15, 2011. The music was composed after a commission from Chamber Music America. I've launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the post-production of the CD. Please feel free to take a look, enjoy the video and please spread the word! http://kck.st/bVuqII The CD features a stellar line up including some of the most outstanding jazz musicians on the New York scene: Avishai Cohen on trumpet, Loren Stillman on saxophones, Alan Ferber on trombone, Brad Shepik on guitar, Dan Tepfer on piano and Mark Ferber on drums, with the special collaboration of two of the most exceptional musicians in Spain that are renowned for blending jazz with Flamenco, Perico Sambeat on saxophone and Marc Miralta on percussion. Also featuring these very special guests: Israel Suárez "Piraña" Tomás Moreno "Tomasito",
and Blas Córdoba Kejío
on flamenco handclaps and "Jaleos".
