Details of Jesse Cook and the Ticket Luck value
The father of New Flamenco music is all set to hit the stage in your city. With a host of concerts lined up, Jesse Cook is touring Houston, Dallas, Colorado and many other destinations this March. So it is almost time to rush and buy Jesse Cook tickets right away.
Jesse Cook, although of Canadian origin, spent much of his early years in France and Spain. He developed an inclination for the guitar from a young age and being in Spanish proximity he got familiarized with the Flamenco style of music. His multi cultural background and upbringing reflects considerably in the variation that he brings to his music. His work is a blend of jazz, Flamenco and World Music, which makes it a treat for listeners from various nationalities. His father was a famous filmmaker and so entering the field of media was not something new. Guitar lessons at a young age coupled with familiarity with the lead singer of the Gypsy Kings, Cook’s style of music began to take shape. Later as his parents separated he began to live more of an international life. He would spend time with his father in France or Spain where he accustomed himself to the style of music prevalent in these countries. Apart from that he mainly resided in Canada with his mother where he continued to learn the guitar.
The 1995 Catalina Jazz Festival was a turning point in his life. His debut album “Tempest” had been released only a month earlier and he was supposed to perform in the break during the Festival. However, his short performance received unprecedented applause and so he was later called to perform on stage for the main event. From then onwards it was an uphill journey for Cook. He had the chance for opening up shows for singers such as B.B King and Ray Charles.
What sets him apart specifically is his inclination towards diversity which reflects in his music a great deal. In his career he has toured several countries to increase his musical diversity. He has recorded songs with a host of diverse artists. These include Flora Purim from Brazil, Alex Cuba from Cuba, Djivan Gasperyan from Armenia and many others. His work has had the honor of being played at The Olympic Games as well.
He has eight recorded studio albums to his credit along with three live DVDs. His album ‘Free Fall’ won the JUNO Award in 2001 for Best Instrumental album. He has also won the Canadian Smooth Jazz Award in the category of ‘Guitarist of the Year’ three times. His album “The Rumba Foundation” went up on number one for ITunes Canada. His album “Free Fall” was certified Platinum in Canada. His live performances undoubtedly remain his forte. Through these he is able to captivate large crowds and give out some of the most melodious and sweet sounding music. As his national and international touring continues, his fan base is growing extensively. This is a chance for all his followers to catch his electrifying performances. Buy your Jesse Cook tickets to enjoy a night of quality soothing music.
His latest album “Blue Guitar Sessions” is a step away from his traditional style of doing music. Like most of his albums, it has met with considerable commercial success but what sets it apart is the experimentation that Cook has done. He ventures into adding soft blues an atmospheric instrumental pop. For most of his albums, he has composed the songs himself but in many of his albums musicians vary by track. “Frontiers” was the one album for which he wrote all the songs himself. This album Cook describes was inspired by the birth of his son and his family’s temporary relocation to Spain. Some of his most famous melodies include “Santa Maria”, “Tuesday’s Child” and “Orbit”.
Today it has almost been seventeen years since the first time Cook stepped on stage; however, the energy that he exudes remains afresh. His international exposure is what sets his music apart from most contemporary artists. An exotic blend of historical Andalusia and Spanish melodies mixed with the electrifying Western guitars produces some of the most exquisite melodies in current time Flamenco music. For him music is not going about the rules but it is about experimentation and mixing. He even recalls times from his childhood when he would not concentrate on practicing what he had been taught rather he would simply sit and play whatever he wanted to. It is perhaps this rebellious streak that helped nurture the musical genius in him.
