Artist of the Day: Jesse Cook

posted by Matt Jarrells on 05/12/2017

Juno Award winner and Canadian nuevo flamenco revolutionary Jesse Cook brings his masterfully inventive guitar stylings to the Kalamazoo State Theater tonight at 8:00pm. Cook learned his trade from famed teacher Eli Kassner, who passed down the tradition of his guru, late Spanish classical guitar virtuoso Andres Segovia.

On his latest album, 2015’s One World, Cook has melded his international influences into a flourishing cocktail of guitar, uniting flamenco, classical, rumba, world beat, pop, blues and jazz. As with all of his work, the record speaks for itself and fans can look forward to a smooth transition of the material into a live setting.
