Juanito Pasqual 

i am at home recovering from back surgery and have had more time on my hands than i care to have--not quite like taking a vacation. between walks and such i have been checking out videos, etc. and avoiding jerry springer--of course unless he has transexual bullfighters on his show then i might watch.

here is juanito pasqual website. juanito is from the boston area and is a world class and world reknown flamenco guitarist. by the way, he plays an aaron green blanca. check out the videos and his schedule--a cruise with praire home comparion. how unusual and cool is that.

He's a tight player indeed. I've seen him on YouTube and Vimeo.

Wow that C# buleria on the video page of his site is really good. You can see the classical guitar influence in the variety of touch he uses - e.g. his thumb position ranges from a classical position to a more wrist - driven morao-like thumb.

John is definitely the man. I have always considered him a great talent and great soul.

I met him years ago when we were both much younger and just setting out on our respective careers. This was getting close to 20 years ago and in those days Ramon de los Reyes and Omyra Amaya were very active in Boston, it was a real high point. I met him at a Jazz bar that had an upstairs function room that a dancer rented out every Sunday night for a juerga. It was a real great introduction to flamenco as both Ramon and Omyra would be there regularly as well as Fernando de Malaga, a great singer, Roberto Rios, a great traditional accompanist guitarist who would be my teacher and all the other aficionados that made up the Boston scene. I was underage and it seemed I was the only person who knew that or at least cared so it was a great treat to be able to hang out in a bar, learn about this amazing art and drink too. I miss those days.

A few months ago I got the pleasure of presenting Juanito in concert, pairing him with Gene Bertoncini, a legendary jazz guitarist and dear friend. That was one of the greatest guitar concert experiences I have ever had.

He sounds very average in comparison to the countless monster players that seem to grow on trees in Spain.
I was just listening to an Antonio Rey alegrias and it makes Juanito sound like a beginner.
