ABOUT JORGE PARDO
Grammy-winning flute/saxophone player Jorge Pardo, is a truly one of a kind artist and one of the most sought after figures in the Spanish scene. He came to prominence through more than 20 years of collaboration with Paco de Lucia and his legendary Sextet, and was the first person to incorporate flute and sax into flamenco, including seminal recordings with the legendary Camaron de la Isla. As such, Jorge has set the template for instruments in flamenco outside of flamecno’s traditional instrument of guitar, creating an entirely new dimension of this ancient tradition. He’s worked extensively with Chick Corea, winning the 2020 Grammy award for Corea’s album “Antidote.” In 2012 he was awarded the “Best European Jazz Musician” award by the Academie Francaise du Jazz, and his 2023 release “Trance Sketches” (which features Juanito among many others guests) won the “Best Jazz Album” award at MIN in Spain. Jorge collaborates continuously with all of the top figures in flamenco as well as with artists from many genres.
