Anima Flamenca - Jorge Pardo Orquestal
Direction and Arrangements by Toni Cuenca

Jorge Pardo, Madrid, December 1st, 1956

Like any ordinary Spaniard in that era and that young, he begins to play the guitar, although he is immediately lured to the world of wind instruments. His musical references are countless artists and diverse styles. He starts playing professionally at “joints” in the city. Diego Carrasco, Jean Luc Vallet, Manuel Soler, Peer Wyboris, David Thomas, Ricardo Miralles, Pedro Iturralde, Vlady Bas, among others, are references and maestros in his surroundings.

Las Grecas, by the hand of Johnny Galvao, is his first professional recording. Dolores forms a group around Pedro Ruy Blas with several musicians from the Madrid scene, 3 LPs are recorded and on one of them Paco de Lucía appears, with whom he collaborates in time in several recordings and world tours. He also meets Camarón in the same era and records on ‘La Leyenda del Tiempo’ and other productions. Moreover, at the flamenco studios Amor de Dios he collaborates with the entire new generation of artists “Los jóvenes flamencos” brewing in Madrid in that period. The flute and sax have been linked to the world of flamenco ever since.

‘Las cigarras son quizá sordas’, ‘Veloz hacia su sino’, ‘Diez de Paco’, are some of the titles he records in the ’90s produced by his brother Jesús for Nuevos Medios. He takes part in the projects ‘Vida en Catedrales’ with several references with Tomás San Miguel, ‘Zebra Coast’ with Gil Goldstein, ‘Ur’ with Michaell Bismut, ‘Jazzpaña’ with arrangements by Ariff Mardin and Vince Mendoza. Then in the new century, the recordings with D’3, his collection ‘Vientos Flamencos’, the trio with Carles Benavent and Tino di Geraldo and ‘Touchstone’ with Chick Corea. He has performed at countless festivals and stages on all the continents.
