Whenever Sergio Pamies comes home from the U.S., he holds a jam session with his childhood friends, who have since become major flamenco performers. Together, they pay musical tribute to the glorious past of Granada's old Moorish Albaicin, where Sergio was born. The powerful swing of his piano melts together with the "deep chant," the cante jondo of the flamenco, the intricate clapping of hands and the cajón, in an astonishing crucible of sounds. Exile makes Spaniards feel their creative roots more deeply and passionately, they even find it in the saxophones of the Bronx and the trumpets of St. Louis. The result of this potent witches' brew is the genre known as flamenco-jazz, which has already been celebrated by several great musicians on both sides of the Atlantic. But Sergio Pamies stands alone, because his music is not just a chemical combination of substances or a cook's blend of ingredients. It is the outcome of a struggle between nostalgia and imagination which requires the highest level of originality and spontaneity. And the victor of this battle is always Love of Life, with two big L's.
