Ma Xiaohui, Abraham & Burnett: JZ Club Shanghai

Filed under: music, travel, China Tour 4, China — burnett @ 6:31 pm

 

I suggested to Ma Xiaohui that she meet Abraham Carmona, the Flamenco guitarist from Seville.  Before I knew it, we were all onstage March 29 at the JZ Club in Shanghai with EJ & Chris.  The first performance was a  somewhat truncated Por Una Cabeza with AC singing and MX somewhat bewildered.  On March 31, I insisted that we make a bigger production of the piece, and both artists had a chance to stretch on this tune.  It was a bit of a struggle for MX to be onstage with a powerful performer like AC, but it all came together.  MX also performed Ellington’s Sophisticated Lady  with the Trio.  I give her credit for  braving the jazz club…not exactly her milieu.
