Chano Dominguez

Though the association of flamenco music and an instrument is primarily the guitar, Chano Dominguez has been steadily taking his jazz approach on the piano head on into the genre with brilliant results.

“In jazz you improvise with a structure in the background and in flamenco [the improvisation] is part of the form. In flamenco, in a soleá, or in a bulera, the guitarist doesn't know what the cantaor is doing until the moment comes, and the cantaor doesn't know the falseta (variation, or melodic phrase, interspersed between successions of chords) that the guitarist is going to play for him.”
