Matt Speaks Out!

Everybody has different tastes in music and Flamenco was not my favorite genre however, I’ve learned to love it. After traveling through Spain and listening to many flamenco players, it is my opinion that Jose Antonio Rodriguez is one of the greatest flamenco guitarists in the world. From taking Paco de Lucia’s place in a tribute to him with Al De Meola , to making two albums in Spain with full orchestra , and now receiving the attention of Luis Conte and Abraham Laboriel proves my feelings. Please check the credits for those two great musicians that will be accompanying Mr Rodriguez. – Matt, Alvas Showroom Managing Director

One of Spain’s leading flamenco guitarists-composers of this generation, award-winning Jose Antonio Rodriguez has a dazzling and highly versatile career.

José Antonio has performed and collaborated with Paco de Lucia, Alejandro Sanz, Chick Corea, Al Di Meola, Astor Piazzola, Joan Baez, George Benson, Arturo Sandoval, John McLaughlin, Rita Moreno, Herman Rarebell (Scorpions), Don Doken, Bobby Kimball (TOTO), and John Parr among others.

In his 20s, Jose Antonio became the youngest flamenco guitar professor at the Conservatory of Music in Cordoba, and his impressive skills got him to compose music for orchestra, ballet, TV and films.

During the 90’s, Rodriguez was featured in Carlos Saura’s film “Flamenco”, and recorded guitar on countless multi-awarded international hits including “Macarena” by Los Del Rio.

In 2003, he recorded guitar on Alejandro Sanz’ mega hit “No Es Lo Mismo” and in 2004, he toured the world as special guest of the international superstar.

Jose Antonio Rodriguez has released 9 albums. His most recent one is “Adios Muchachos” (2019) released on Moon Moosic Records.

“Adiós Muchachos…” is absolutely amazing. José Antonio Rodríguez’s guitar playing is quite impressive!
