Pianist John Cervantes presents his flamenco-jazz ensemble, originally formed out of informal jam sessions with Spanish musicians living in London. Driven by an electrifying rhythm section of cajon, drum kit and palmas, Cervantes Ensemble perform brand new compositions fusing fiery flamenco grooves with contemporary jazz harmony and impassioned melodies. The Ensemble features a stunning line-up of performers including Cadiz-born percussionist Malick Mbengue (Chano Dominguez, Julian Sanchez), drum kit player Jon Desbruslais (Los Charly’s Orchestra, Buddy Greco), and double bass player Sandy Suchodolski (Quentin Collins, Renato D'Aiello). This evening they will be joined by the UK’s premier jazz flautist Gareth Lockrane, renowned for his robust, gutsy and compelling soloing.
"Cervantes plays beautifully and lyrically...The enthusiastic audience would not let the band leave without an encore, they knew they had seen something special." LondonJazzNews.com
