Cost: $10-$15

The core quartet is a combination of two Spanish musicians from the home of flamenco, Andalusia, pianist Jesús Hernández and singer/flute player Alfonso Cid; and two long time veterans of the New York jazz scene, bassist Tim Ferguson and drummer Mark Holen

The group also performs in expanded quintet or sextet form with flamenco dancers who have included María De Los Angeles, Auxi Fernández and Marina Elana and horn players such as Peter Brainin, Joel Frahm and Jorge Pardo.

The repertoire of The New Bojaira is rooted in the styles and rhythms of flamenco. A jazz approach allows the musicians of the band to open improvisational doors. In addition to original compositions by Hernández and the band, the group draws on a varied repertoire, including flamenco arrangements of jazz standards such as “Laura” and Thelonious Monk’s “Round Midnight”.
