Chano Dominguez and Niño Josele
EFG London Jazz Festival
London’s biggest jazz music festival comes to the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse this year with two outstanding performances of Shakespeare Songs and Chano Domínguez and Niño Josele.
‘One of the best jazz festivals in the world’
The worlds of flamenco and jazz collide in a fascinating new collaboration, initiated by the renowned producer Fernando Trueba for his label Calle 54 and scheduled for autumn release. Trueba’s instinct was that pianist Chano Domínguez and guitarist Niño Josele – two of the great original voices in Spanish music today - were destined to meet and find a shared language built on dynamic interplay and sheer musicality. With a repertoire that extends into interpretations of songs by Jobim and other Brazilian composers, alongside Michel Legrand and Henry Mancini, this is a duo who communicate with flair and passion.
