Our debut CD Quartet Equinox - Flamenco Jazz is featuring all original compositions by Dirk K. He collected a great variety of compositions featuring a very unique symbiosis of all acoustic instruments.
The style of music is categorized as Flamenco and Jazz, simply because it uses original flamenco rhythms such as the Buleria, Rumba and Solea and many more and mixes them with Swing elements and chords, utilizing the cool vibe of Jazz, but keeping the excitement of Flamenco. So this is not traditional music, this is a new fusion of styles, keeping an all acoustic feel. All the musicians are featured on this CD. Melodies are played by everyone even the Bass Clarinet is taking the lead in a composition called "Solista". The CD was recorded Live on
May 1st and 2nd 2007 at Eagle Rock Studios, Los Angeles, CA.
