Jazz at the Spring presents: Miche Fambro
Jazz at the Spring is presenting the wonderfully talented Miche’ Fambro on February 28. Gifted with a silky-smooth voice often compared to Nat King Cole’s, and a jazz-meets-flamenco guitar style, Fambro blends voice and guitar to create a rich jazz tapestry that seamlessly incorporates elements of pop, funk and classical music, to create a soundscape of soothing complexity. Miche’ Fambro is a refreshing breath of musical air in a world that needs joyous, healing music.
Fambro’s brilliant melding of straight ahead, flamenco and percussive modern playing is even more impressive given that he's playing left handed, but with the strings turned upside down as if he picked up a regular right-handed guitar and just flipped it over, no doubt what he did as a kid. This makes everything backwards from what guitarists normally do, like playing bass notes with their thumbs. Nevertheless, Fambro’s technique is extraordinary. Fambro, who Rolling Stone called "a quiet storm," has toured extensively throughout the US, Canada and Europe and will be joined by bassist Otto Gardner.
