What people are saying:

I have taken this Sunday morning to sit and go through your wonderful book.  The quotes are so uplifting and astounding.  As I read the quote from Schweitzer – about when the light goes out and is rekindled by another person I thought of you.  You have given me that spark.  I know I am old and past physical means to spark but I will share your spark in my way as life moves on.

Thank you so much for your art, talent, and this wonderful book.

“… tastefully done. As you know, a picture is often worth a thousand words, but many of the brief quotes in the book are also worth a thousand words.  In some ways, each page is a new world.”

I love this photo!

Besides being a fantastic flamenco guitarist, Chris Burton Jácome happens to be a talented singer.  I just assume most people know this about him.  Also in the background is another great talent, Sal Gallegos, who sang the introduction to my piece.

The Chris Burton Jácome Flamenco Ensemble had the wonderful gift this year to be the season opener for the GCCCA’s concert season.  It was a magical evening performing at the Western New Mexico University’s Fine Arts Center on October 15, 2011.  Silver City is my hometown and it was wonderful to have so many family and friends attend the concert that evening. In addition, I released my coffee table book, Flamenco! at the concert.  A special evening indeed!

With all the excitement I actually forgot to take photos!  How can this be?  I find myself asking that question now. So here are the few images that were taken during the richly filled adventure to Silver City, New Mexico.

On our way to the venue. Organic Popcorn with Olive Oil.. yum.  Only at Trader Joe’s!

The Chris Burton Jácome Flamenco Ensemble began their October tour in Pampa, Texas, performing in the M.K. Brown Civic Auditorium.  Though it begins to cool off in Phoenix, Arizona, I found myself quite cold throughout our travels.  Here are some images of our time!

After the very successful CBJ Flamenco & Friends concert at SOU on Friday, January 14th, we traveled to Pistol River the following day for an evening concert with Pistol River Concert Association.  While on the road we took a pit stop to explore the Redwoods in Northern California.  Here are a few pictures from our time there.
