Jesse Chosen For Greatest Flamenco Guitar Player List
UK based music website HelloMusicTheory with 500k subscribers just ranked Jesse on their list of all time Flamenco Guitar Greats!
- Paco Du Lucia
- Vincente Amigo
- Jesse Cook.
Our next guitarist, Jesse Cook, stands out among the rest of the flamenco players on this list in that his flamenco style is unconventional. A mix of world music and jazz, his flamenco is certainly with a twist and is categorized as rumba or new flamenco.
With a passion for modern music the world over as well as traditional sound, he set off to make his own fusion that captured the world, winning him silver in the Flamenco category of Acoustic Guitar‘s 2009 Player’s Choice Award.
Though he is not truly traditional in any sense when it comes to the genre, Cook has made his mark as being innovative in style and was successful in the music industry.
