Bassist and composer Buster Williams leads his Something More ensemble in a presentation of flamenco and jazz entitled Spanish Sun – Flamenco Rising, with Mark Gross on saxophone, Eric Reed on piano, Ignacio Berroa on drums, and special guest Adam del Monte on flamenco guitar, at the Iridium Jazz Club August 6-8, 2010. Sets begin at 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. and feature a $25 cover charge.
Building upon his bandleader status as the head of the “Something More” Quartet, Mr. Williams recently began composing a series of long-form suites that explore the traditions of American jazz and Spanish flamenco. Finding in Los Angeles-based flamenco guitarist Adam del Monte a like-minded collaborator, Williams composed new works that unite the complex harmonies of jazz with the 12-count rhythms and keening melodies of flamenco styles. The new works receive their New York Premiere at the Iridium Jazz Club.
