Paris Cat Flamenco Jazz Concert Oct 19 2016
Last Wednesday, October 19, I performed at the Paris Cat Jazz Club, in Melbourne. I had the pleasure of performing alongside two of my favourite Melbourne jazz musicians:
Tamara Murphy on bass and Darryn Farrugia on drums.
During the evening we performed a selection of my own compositions from my albums as: El Deseo, Mi Alma and Spanish Breeze. I also had the opportunity to showcase my new release, which you can hear below.
As always, at the Paris Cat Jazz club I like to perform in the jazz idiom, standards and blues, but with an acoustic Spanish guitar. In the past, I have always struggled, to play the Spanish guitar with drums, but recently I have purchased a vintage artisan Spanish guitar, Ramirez, built in1962.
This guitar can project with clarity in all registers and dynamic , there fore it can be heard without the need of much amplification, when drums are played a relatively loud volumes.
I must also thank the Paris Cat crew and managers, for supporting live music in Melbourne, and therefore helping shape this city, as a vibrant cultural hub of the southern hemisphere.

On this same day, October 19, I also had the pleasure of performing for the Commercial Bar Association of Victoria. I encountered a a happy crowd of lawyers, barristers and judges eager to enjoy themselves with Spanish music. Thank you all for having me over.
