Jesse Cook

World,Latin/Salsa,Jazz

The acclaimed guitarist Jesse Cook has spent a lifetime traveling the globe and absorbing rhythms from the diverse cultures of Africa, Europe and the Americas. His exotic rumba flamenco is a fusion of these musical traditions. After decades of crisscrossing the world in restless pursuit of inspiration, innovation and collaboration, the Paris-born, Toronto-raised Cook changed course for his 2015 album, "One World." Instead of exotic locales, he stayed home in his studio. Instead of a foreign legion of performers, he relied on his own devices. And instead of exploring cul de sacs of music - flamenco, classical, rumba, world beat, pop, blues or jazz - he united them.
