Between jazz and flamenco, and far beyond… Jorge Pardo (flute, sax), Paco Soto (flamenco guitar) and Sergio Martínez(percussion) at the Amstel Art. Veles e vents last night!
Spanish flutist and saxophonist Jorge Pardo -awarded as Best European Jazz Musician in 2013 by the French Jazz Academy- is internationally renowned musician who has surpassed all the limits of flamenco.
Born in 1956 (Madrid), Jorge Pardo started playing the guitar, but soon felt attraction to the world of wind instruments. His musical references are many artists and different styles. Diego Carrasco, Jean Luc Vallet, Manuel Soler, Peer Wyboris, David Thomas, Ricardo Miralles, Pedro Iturralde, Vlady Bas, among others, are references and masters of his environment. He was the first flute and saxophone player to perform along Paco de Lucía and also a usual partner of American jazz legend Chick Corea. His collaborators list extends covering the most diverse styles and backgrounds, from “solo flute” to his Flamenco Big Band project Huellas XL, flamenco and jazz trios or symphonic projects.
In 2015 Jorge Pardo has been awarded with the Premio Nacional de las Músicas Actuales, an acknowledgement that comes from the Ministerio de Educación, Cultura y Deporte. The jury announced the award due to Pardo’s “talent as performer and composer, and for his ability to turn his instrument into a poetic voice“, also highlighting that he helped “establish bridges between the hispanic traditions, mostly flamenco, to other world musics, a groundbreaking career that has obtained much foreign appreciation“, such as the 2013 Best European Jazz Musician award given by the prestigious french Académie du Jazz.
