On a whim, and for no particular event, birthday, or anniversary celebration, I purchased tickets to take my guitar-playing husband, Tom, to hear the mesmerizing, evocative, and GORGEOUS music of Jesse Cook and Company. He loved it and I am a huge fan now, too. On stage last night, Cook announced that they are returning to Boston this summer to play at Copley Square and I hope to find out more about this upcoming performance.
Cook is thought to be the most influential figure in nuevo flamenco guitar and his music is richly infused by many forms of music from around the world including Egyptian, Armenian, and American jazz and blues.
As they did in this live performance at the Rose Theatre, Jesse and the band came into the audience last night at the Wilbur to perform their second encore.
