“Music for people with open ears and open minds. Far removed from a predefined style. Without any fear of mixing genres.” Jazzpaña sought to connect the unexpected, in this case Flamenco and Jazz. Coming up with this idea in 1992, Jazzpaña II followed in the year 2000 as the second successful album. Now, 15 years on from Jazzpaña II, and over two decades since the original idea was conceived, ACT presents Jazzpaña live rbingin a thrid wold an stage: Flamenco, Jazz and Classic.
