I flew into San Jose, California and performed in the area on April 5, 2012 with the Chris Burton Jácome Flamenco Quartet including Emerson Laffey on percussion and Adrian Goldenthal on bass.  Invited guest Albert Marques played flamenco guitar.  Albert was Chris’ first guitar teacher and the person to introduce Chris to flamenco.  Needless to say, it was a very special evening had by all! Here are a few images from that evening, photos courtesy of Mike Adams, a longtime friend of Chris’.

The CBJ Flamenco Ensemble performed in the beautiful Crest Theatre in Sacramento, California on Sunday, October 23, 2011.  This was my first visit to Sacramento and I fell in love with the city.  We had a fabulous concert that day and a memorable time.  I can’t wait to return back to the amazing city.

The lighting was a bit dim, so the images are a bit unclear, but you get the idea.  Photos were taken during our tech rehearsal prior to the concert.

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!
