Jazz was not born as music for intellectuals, even though it has become that. Jazz is much more than that—it’s alive, and it’s partly improvised, just like flamenco. Encomienda Street is the point of balance between music and dance. It is the search and the meeting place for everyone.
After playing jazz for years in Mexico, I came to Spain where I started to play flamenco and was baffled by a simple, straightforward observation: "Music is for dancing." Being Latin, how could I have forgotten that?
Miguel Reyes JIMÉNEZ.
For us, flamenco is like a gambling card—a constant bet on the winning horse, which is, without a doubt, the art. It’s just like a card that entices you to play when you see it, to participate, and have a good time.
