JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2006 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Jonathan "Juanito" Pascual

Jonathan "Juanito" Pascual sounded beautiful in the atrium at Max. He explained the flamenco forms and rhythms and knocked the Gypsy Kings for using the same rhythm in all of their songs. He had plenty of anticdotes about the players he learned from and we really wanted to like him but there was too much Jonathan and not enough Juanito in his playing. Flamenco should be full of duende. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
