The genious of the Flamenco and Jazz
Benavent-Di Geraldo-Pardo

CARLES BENAVENT - TINO DI GERALDO - JORGE PARDO
Benavent-Di Geraldo-Pardo

The trio Carles Benavent-Tino Di Geraldo- Jorge Pardo appeared as a continuation of the previous group of Jorge Pardo and Carles Benavent, the sextet that made history in the new flamenco and who accomplished his cycle in the summer of '98 with a tour of apotheosis in the most important jazz festivals that took them from Vitoria to Montreal.

With this the sextet -this is a rigorous historical fact- began to develop improvisation on the support of the most rigorous rhythmic flamenco, and jazz with an attitude based on the compositions of Pardo and Benavent contained in their previous albums. With the arrival of Tino this masterful trio was formed, consisting of three true masters of the fusion of flamenco and jazz.

El concierto de Sevilla was the first witness sound editing. An album that was recorded during two concerts at the Teatro Central in Seville on December 1999. An extraordinary fusion of jazz, flamenco and Mediterranean music, where together including songs from his previous recording career.

Sin precedentes is the title chosen for their second album, which contained original compositions by Benavent, Di Geraldo and Pardo. In this new work, 'the trio' journey continues ... at their own way.

Almost a decade has taken Jorge Pardo, Carles Benavent and Tino di Geraldo to return to the recording arena. The saxophonist, bassist and drummer do, according to Jorge, "an update of the proposal" that until now only had records in 'Live from from Sevilla'. The obvious difference with that first album is the studio work. As Tino says, "squeeze the maximum laboratory. So much so that even they were surprised by such things as a great sound and technical creativity. For Carles is "a record to listen many times." For Jorge, "a record unprecedented ... in history "

JORGE PARDO

Jorge Pardo (Madrid, España, 1955). Sax and flute.

Jorge Pardo, saxophone and flute player, is one of the most outstanding and consistent revelations of the flamenco jazz fusion. He started studying at the Madrid Conservatory when he was fourteen. Soon, he oriented his career towards jazz, and he was one of the founders of Dolores (with Pedro Ruy-Blas).

He is one of the most international Spanish jazz players. He entered the flamenco world carried by Paco de Lucía, and he has achieved a new blending of the more traditional jazz with flamenco. His playing style, with the cross flute as well as the saxophone, has become a referential point.

Jorge Pardo

Apart of working with the Paco de Lucía Sextet, he also has played with almost all of the most important flamenco artists. He also has performed with Chick Corea and Astrud Gilberto, and usually collaborates with Ketama and La Barbería del Sur.

Some of his solo records are deeply involved in the exploration of flamenco rythms and jazz tradition, with recordings such as ‘Veloz hacia su sino’, ‘Las guitarras son quizás sordas’, ‘2332’ and ‘Mira’, among others.

With bass player Carles Benavent and percussionist Tino di Geraldo founded a trio that released the live recording ‘El concierto de Sevilla’ and ‘Sin Precedentes’.

Pardo is also part of the trio D’3 with double-bass player Francis Posé and percussionist J. Vázquez ‘Roper’.

Since 2004, Jorge Pardo has been a member of Chick Corea’s Touchstone band.

In 2005, Pardo released the solo album ‘Vientos flamencos’, simultaneously published in digital format at Flamencodigital.com, with collaborations by Juan Diego and Niño Josele, among others.

In 2009 released his newest CD ‘Vientos Flamencos 2’. He has performed live at forums in the all the 5 Continents.

TINO DiGERALDO

Faustino Fernández Fernández, Toulouse, France, 1960. Percussionist. Known as Tino Di Geraldo. Born to Asturian parents (Northern Spain), he spent his childhood in France. He began his career as drummer for a rock band called Tapones Visente. He currently also produces various Spanish musicians such as Tomasito. A true eclectic, he has played as studio musician for a very wide variety of styles (jazz, rock, flamenco, pop).

Tino Di Geraldo

He is a fixture on many flamenco artists’ recordings (Paco de Lucía, José Mercé, etc...) and often plays for live performances with Enrique Morente, Manolo Sanlúcar and other important names in flamenco, as well as appearing with the trio Benavent-Di Geraldo-Pardo, a freeform group inspired in jazz and flamenco.

Tino di Geraldo contributes great knowledge and experience in his vision of compás. Always seeking new sounds and rhythmic patterns, the musicality and creativity of his rhythm has made him one of the most recorded Spanish musicians. In his solo recordings he has also recorded bass and other instruments. He has released two solo albums: “Flamenco lo seras tú” and “Burlerías”, which are some of the most original tunes never released, including music that comes from jazz to flamenco and from African roots to rock in a very personal way.

Artists such as Diego Carrasco, Raimundo Amador, Javier Álvarez has recorded. He has also recorded and toured with the famous American singer Jackson Browne, with him who has collaborated since 2006.
