An original and versatile fusion, blending the depth and intensityof jazz harmony and improvisation, with the excitement of flamenco rhythms.

The core quartet is comprised of a combination of two highly regarded Spanish musicians from Andalucía, the home of flamenco, and two long time veterans of theNew York jazz scene. Pianist, composer and bandleader Jésus Hernández hasbeen an integral part of the Spanish music scene for many years.

He has worked with renowned Flamenco guitarist Tomatito and has toured the world performing as a featured vocalist withthe popular Latin artist Romeo Santos, as well as performing with the Montreal Andalusian Orchestra conducted by Tom Cohen where he appeared alongside RabbiHaim Louk.
