It is hard to express the satisfaction I get from having brilliant musicians perform when I interview them for NY1 Noticias. In the case of flamenco star Niño Josele, I could barely make a question after watching him play the guitar as if he was walking through an automatic door.
A few minutes earlier, ha had interrupted his improvisation by saying with a smile: “What a hard-to-play instrument the guitar is!” I didn’t know if he was joking. He wasn’t.
In this interview, he explains with more musical notes than words how he can go from Bill Evans to flamenco in what to him is a flick of the wrist.
