Chano Domínguez’s singular work is defined by his flamenco origins and expansive vision. During an illustrious career spanning more than 40 years, the four-time Grammy-nominated pianist, composer and producer from Andalusia (now based in New York City) has achieved an unusual integration between the rhythms and languages of flamenco and those of jazz. The result is a unique style that places him among the top musicians practicing his artform.
Chano’s interpretive talents are in high demand, as seen in his collaborations with esteemed colleagues like Paco de Lucía, Wynton Marsalis, Paquito d’Rivera, Herbie Hancock, Chucho Valdés and Joe Lovano. His music has been performed by many different ensembles and orchestras, such as the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, WDR Cologne Big Band and Orquesta Nacional de España,
In the company of some of Spain’s brightest young music students, Chano recently launched the show Chano Domínguez & Taller de Músics Ensemble. It’s a program of original pieces, arrangements of traditional Latin songs, and jazz standards by Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk, among others, refracted through the prism of flamenco and celebrating the incredible meeting of youth, wisdom, energy and, above all, talent!
