This CD is produced by Jorge Pardo who played saxophone and flute with the
Paco De Lucia Sextet. I have witnessed two concerts and was very excited
about the virtuosic, adventurous and dynamic blend of flamenco and jazz!
Well, listening to the album "Como Ninos" I am sure that
guitarplayer/bandleader Andres Olaegui and Jorge Pardo share their musical
vision because most compositions sound as .. a dynamic blend of jazz and
flamenco (tanguillo, bulerias, rumba and solea). The rhythm-section plays
very fluent and dynamic with strong jazzy overtones. Andres his electric
guitarplay (lots of great soli, very flowing and melodic) is also drenched
in the jazz tradition but he has invited many guest musicians on saxophone
(Jorge Pardo), flamenco guitar (Javier Romanos who plays in the vein of Paco
De Lucia), percussion, bandurria, silbido, laud, cazuus, vocals and palmas.
The emphasis on this CD is on jazz but the Andres Olaegui Trio has succeeded
to add some interesting flamenco elements, especially on the highlights A
Night In Tunesia and La Fiesta. Adventurous music by great musicians!
