Jazz from Gallery Podcast - Interview with Carmelo Muriel

Jazz is truly a universal language, and I recently had the opportunity to record a conversation with Carmelo Muriel, a marvelous saxophonist / flautist and composer living in Cadiz, Spain.  His artistic approach combines the elements of Jazz improvisation with the rhythms and harmonies of traditional Spanish Flamenco into something that is genuinely and uniquely creative.  His most recent recording is called "El Jardin de las Naranjas" on which one will  hear a piece based on the rhythm of the pasodoble, the  tango ,the rondena,  or the solea. Carmelo  is joined on the recording by guitarist Nono Garcia, drummer Juan Sainz, and bassist Piet Verbist forming the nucleus of his quartet which is augmented on by the strings of Carmen Jurado and Pedro Domenech and adding a true Flamenco flare you will also hear Kuki Santiago and David Gavira clapping their hands and tapping their feet in the most creative way.  (Conversation recorded: Sunday 29 April 2012).
