Biography
Chano Domínguez is one of the most celebrated jazz musicians "recruited" by flamenco. Although Chano had already learned flamenco –the first instrument he learned to play, by ear, was the guitar- he also ventured into rock with his keyboard. Before he descended fully onto the flamenco scene with his “Chano Domínguez Trío”, he had already worked with renowned artists such as Pepe de Lucía, Potito and Juan Manuel Cañizares.
Chano Domínguez has achieved an unusual integration between rhythms and languages of jazz and flamenco. He plays tangos, tanguillos, alegrías, compás de bulerías, fandangos and soleás on his piano with a traditional jazz structure. Nowadays Chano Domínguez is one of the most demanded musicians on the entire Spanish music scene, in any musical genre. He has worked with an extensive range of artists including Enrique Morente, Estrella Morente, Martirio, Marta Valdés, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Ana Belén, Jorge Pardo, Carles Benavent, Paco de Lucía, Joe Lovano, Herbie Hancock, Jack DeJohnette and Wynton Marsalis with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra.
He has recorded several records such as: Chano (Nuba 1993), 10 de Paco ( Nuevos Medios 1994), Hecho a Mano (Nuba 1996), New Flamenco Sound (Verve 2007), Piano Ibérico (EMI 2010) or his last one Grammy nominée "Flamenco Scketches" (Blue Note 2011).
His music has been played by many differents ensembles and orchestras such as: the Orquesta Nacional de España, WDR Big band, Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra among others.
He is currently based in the US, and teaching workshops at several colleges around the country such as the Julliard School in New York and the University of Washington. In 2016 he's been nominated for a Latin Grammy for his latest release "Bendito" where he features as producer, composer and pianist for his usual 'cantaor' (flamenco singer) Blas Cordoba AKA "El Kejio".
