August 25th, 2007. 8:00 p.m.Fundarte presents a special concert showcasing Nino Josele accompanied by Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez on percussion and Esperanza Spalding on bass and voice. The concert will take at the place at the Gusman Center for the Performing Arts, located at 174 E. Flagler Street in downtown Miami. Paz is a love letter from Nino Josele to Bill Evans and to everyone who makes music with no other ambition than to move people with its beauty”, writes Fernando Trueba about the new album by Nino Josele. Paz is Nino Josele’s guitar inspired by Bill Evans’s piano. Two sensibilities that are born from different worlds and different music, and which come together on one of the most beautiful albums you are ever likely to hear. Nino Josele was born in Almería in 1974. Bill Evans had been born previously, in 1929 in New Jersey (United States). The guitarist is descended from a long line of flamenco guitar players, while the pianist started to learn his instrument at the age of six, encouraged by his mother. Both grew up in musical environments. Different cultures but similar sensibilities in terms of finding the perfect note, the best harmony. Paz is a title that fits perfectly with the brotherhood between Bill Evans and Nino Josele, demonstrated on this album, which is produced by Fernando Trueba and Javier Limón. It is the fruit of a long genesis, and an immense dedication from the Spanish guitarist to one of jazz’s greatest ever piano players. For more information, please call: 305.358.5885
