Captivating, soulful music from this flamenco guitar/double bass duo from Seville. Flamenco's passion and warmth, jazz's exploration and improvisation come together in an up-close and original concert by this long-standing partnership from the Andalusian flamenco-jazz scene. Philip Adie studied flamenco with Paco Peña. Active as a flamenco guitarist in Seville he's also involved in many crossover projects with jazz and world music. Luis Salto is a well-kent Jazz double bass player from Seville, known for his earthy feel and rhythmic style. Philip and Luis have shared a musical affinity and association that stretches back 20 years.

If you love Mediterranean cuisine and love Jazz why not go along to see Alba Flamenca Jazz.

You can also go and eat tapas before make a Spanish evening out of it!

It is wonderful and a must see if you want to learn about the flamenco music and where in Spain it derives from.

Great music, great company, thank you Philip and Luis!

An unforgettable moment in the intimate atmosphere of Alba Flamenca (the Spanish Flamenco School of Edinburgh). Bravissimo for Luis and Philip and their passionate if subtle flamenco jazz sketches.

Warm, intimate, and incredibly-skilled show. Communication between guitar and double-bass is amazing. If you know flamenco and modern jazz, you’ll love the playful switches between genres (and indeed overlaps); if you play the guitar in any genre, (or I guess less commonly, double-bass) you’ll be knocked out by two guys who are totally on their game. If you just like music generally, it’s a bit of an education. And if you’re pig-ignorant, go along to feed your head and get some education.

Really enjoyed the switching of leads between the two instruments (how often do you hear the double-bass getting to play melody lines?). I bought the CD (take some cash for that).

Venue has interesting ciders and beers from Spain , aircon, and comfy seats too.
