Gerardo Núñez and Perico Sambeat
Cruce de Caminos
Resistancia


Published June 22, 2006

Guitarist Núñez and saxophonist Sambeat came together with a common interest, which was to blur the lines between flamenco and jazz. Both musicians are eminently qualified and they recruited the brilliant Armenian percussionist Arto Tunçboyaciyan, singer Esperanza Fernandez, and the New York Flamenco Reunion quartet to help out. The title of this live concert appropriately translates as "Crossroads" and indeed the musicians tackle a flamenco repertoire and give it a fresh sheen. The four songs include a traditional song, one based on Pablo Neruda's "No hay olvido," and two based on lyrics by José Bergamin, a Spanish poet of the Twenties. One of the instrumentals, namely Monk's "In Walked Bud," doesn't draw from flamenco as overtly as the others but Cruce de Caminos succeeds in creating a bridge between two distinct genres and their respective audiences.
