“David Peña Dorantes, Renaud Garcia-Fons et Théodosii Spassov : trois artistes de passion aux traditions différentes qui ont rencontré le flamenco d’une façon ou d’une autre. Dorantes, le pianiste andalou, marie le flamenco au jazz et à la musique classique. Garcia-Fons, le contrebassiste français, fait corps et âme avec la Méditerranée. Spassov, le flûtiste bulgare, a révolutionné le kaval. L’union créatrice de ces trois artistes d’exception donne le Free Flamenco Trio, le projet qu’ils offrent samedi à la Maison symphonique avec Tete Peña, percussionniste et quatrième mousquetaire.”

“Well underway and running through Saturday, the Montreal Jazz Festival isn’t just the largest such event in the world — it’s also among the most diverse.
“Every other jazz festival is just a series of concerts,” says Mark Ruffin, the program director of Real Jazz on Sirius/XM in new York. “This is a real festival.”
So real that the 33rd annual gathering is attracting both familiar jazz greats and unexpected stars — like Liza Minnelli and James Taylor.” From NYdailynews.com
