Stefano Bollani invited the trio to appear on his television programme on RAI UNO “L’importante è avere un piano” (All You Need Is A Piano) and the two pianists have already put on various concerts, in Spain and Portugal. However, they have also played alongside another musical icon: Herbie Hancock. These two credentials alone could have been enough to tempt those of you, who may not have had the chance, into listening to the Spaniard Chano Dominguez, creator of a highly unique mix between jazz and flamenco. Similarly, his dexterity as a pianist masters the language of jazz and all styles of Latin music (tango, bolero, fandango, solea, etc.). From here, and following forays into rock and jazz-rock, collaborations sprang forth with other stars of flamenco and jazz, such as the guitarists Tomatito and Paco De Lucia, saxophonist Jorge Pardo, bassist Carles Benavent, Joe Lovano and Jack DeJohnette, as well as Wynton Marsalis and his Lincoln Jazz Orchestra. Born in Cadiz in 1960, Chano Dominguez has lived for some time in the Big Apple, specifically to experience jazz in the very place where it pulsates in its most frank and authentic expression. Eclectic in his choice of repertoire, the Spanish pianist spans various genres, which has also been demonstrated on recent albums such as Flamenco Sketches, a personal homage in a trio to Miles Davis, Soleado, alongside The WDR Big Band Cologne, and Over The Rainbow, a piano solo which, as well as the title track and a couple of songs by Thelonious Monk, includes an outstanding version of “Gracias a la vida” (Thanks to Life) by Violeta Parra.
