Miguel Espinoza Flamenco Jazz
Miguel Espinoza has had a lifelong love affair with flamenco. A child prodigy who started honing his technique since the age of four—and performed his first recital at age nine on PBS—Espinoza is hailed as one of the best flamenco guitarists in the world. Described by Guitar Player Magazine as "mesmerizing," Espinoza is much more than a virtuosic technician. Whether his lightning-fast fingers are skittering across the fretboard, fluttering over the sound hole like percussive hummingbird wings or skillfully drawing achingly beautiful melodies out of the strings, Espinoza's award-winning compositions create an exotic, intoxicating musical elixir of flamenco fusion--one that is as sonically exciting as it is emotionally moving.
Miguel will be join by Lynn Baker (saxophone and percussion), Randy Hoepker (fretless electric bass), and Andy Skellenger (tablas and cajon.)
