While Miles Davis continues to stand tall in the jazz pantheon, it's a challenge and potentially a hazard for artists living in his long shadow to reinterpret and even re-envision the iconic trumpeter and bandleaders music. Hardest of all are his classic recordings, especially the biggest-selling jazz album in history, 1959s KIND OF BLUE. But in a remarkable creative achievement, Barcelona-based pianist Chano Dommnguez has brilliantly fused flamenco with jazz to cook up Flamenco Sketches, a stunning new interpretation of Davis's seminal music on Blue Note Records. It was commissioned by the Barcelona Jazz Festival in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of Kind of Blue and was recorded live at Jazz Standard in New York in 2009. Dommnguezs seven-song collection features all of the KIND OF BLUE tunes augmented by two of Davis's most popular songs, "Nardis" (put on the jazz map by Bill Evans and never recorded by the composer on any of his own albums) and "Serpents Tooth" (a pre-KIND OF BLUE tune that was part of the trumpeters 50s songbook).
