Melbourne Jazz Guitar Concerts Thomas Lorenzo

Melbourne Jazz Guitar Concerts Thomas Lorenzo

Melbourne Jazz Guitar Concerts Thomas Lorenzo

Join us for an evening of unforgettable musical sensations.   A three way conversation between Thomas Lorenzo, Flamenco Guitar, Ben Robertson, Bass and Darryn Farrugia on Drums. You will definitely jump into the musical groove where flamenco caresses funk and jazz.

 I thoroughly enjoy our visceral, dynamic shifts in tempo, and pulsating jazz grooves.  As a guitarist,  I love to float on top of Darryn’s bouncy ongoing rhythm,  and create constant textures with sound and harmony.

Come and share this evening with us: Melbourne Jazz  Guitar Concerts, Thomas Lorenzo,  June 28. Doors open at 8 pm at the Paris Cat Jazz Club.

Orchestration is a fundamental tool for all types of composers. My orchestration book, El Arreglo un Puzzle de Expresión Musical, is one of the few available in the Spanish Language. You may purchase the book through the Amazon site.

Melbourne Acoustic World Music

Melbourne Acoustic World Music

I have just finished recording a very inspiring composition for the Saudi Arabian Student Community in Melbourne. They composed this song as a tribute to all teachers.

melbourne acoustic world music

I laid down the guitars after the talented Oud player, Sam, laid down the structure. Please listen to the song and hear how we play the  rhythm in binary and tertiary subdivisions simultaneously. You can tap your foot feeling the beat in groups of 4 or 3. I have found this type of rhythmic layering common to some African, Flamenco and Afghan Music;  also found in South American music; where African culture was not forbidden consequence of the appaling slave trade. That would be, surprisingly enough, in all Catholic related invading countries as Spain and Portugal.

How to play chords

Another characteristic of the music is the way chords are defined. The Oud layers out the harmony by creating melodic lines that define harmonic tension. Music is a beautiful language that unites all creeds and nations. All the planet shares the same beauty we have created for our daily self balance and enjoyment of life.

At present, I am currently in Spain touring and enjoying the company of my enormous extended family. You can access my full Melbourne concerts and events schedule through this highlighted link. I have scheduled the next series of Melbourne Acoustic World Music  concerts, to start in June 2017.

Flamenco guitars for sale

I have been collecting flamenco guitar masterpieces during the last  39 years of my professional career. Whenever I come across a rare guitar, with an overwhelming sound, I buy it. I buy it without considering who the guitar maker is; I buy it because it feels good and sounds just near perfect.

Theses ideas will help your creative output explode with each new note you write, compose or play. You may purchase this book through this  link: libros de música arreglos y orquestación.

New World Guitar Music

Exciting times. Exciting New World Guitar Music

I am feeling very excited about all my recent new world guitar music releases and upcoming new releases. When I perform them, I just love  their flow of  groove, harmonic textures, acoustic and electric guitar sounds, the contrast between traditional and contemporary settings and the underlining fabrics of constant creativity.

All in all,  my new guitar music represents what I love to share with you: My joy of life and understanding of what brings us all together.  I believe it can be great fun to bond with others. I enjoy bonding through this magnificent language called music,  this gift bestowed upon us.

Please enjoy my new release and stay tuned for my upcoming releases. Please purchase, and contribute to the celebration of music from the heart.

Corporate Clients

Melbourne Live World Music

Melbourne Live World Music

Melbourne is a vibrant cultural hub in Australia. I feel at home amongst its musical cultural diversity.

I believe cultural diversity not also relates to ethnic backgrounds, but to the consequence  of interactions amongst them. Hence the result is a new cultural expression that is a reflection of diversity. A  hidden treasure amongst us all.

When  I perform jazz or flamenco guitar in Australia, I love to express all that diversity with which I am surrounded and make it part of my own way of life. I base my  jazz idiom upon improvisation  but the approach to improvisation will drastically differ, melodically or rhythmically, depending on the style in which I am immersed: Latin, blues, afro, flamenco, Brazilian.

I applaud music lovers, in Melbourne, that accept in a natural manner, that our music is an extension of our diversity.

Please join us on March 8 , 8pm at the Paris Cat Jazz club. Celebrating Music from the heart.

Wishing you all a Happy New  Year.

 

Happy New Year

I personally wish for a year full of musical adventures,  a rollercoaster  ride of exploading emotions.  I would like to invite you, to share this ride, with me and all my musical friends, who adore the sensation of beauty that sincere music arouses in us.

Music colours my life and shines all darkness. I wonder what is music for you.  Do you like to be surrounded by others in comfort and warmth? I know I do, and good music helps this happen.

Thank you all for coming to all my Melbourne concerts and events held in the year 2016.  Your smiles and applauses have definitely made the hard work worth it.

Thomas Loreno

Spain and Barcelona

I have spent many years of my life in Barcelona, Spain. 38 years to be exact. In Spain, we are passionate about beliefs, even if we are wrong. Passion ignites the need to feel alive. It is a must in our daily lives.  Flamenco is a form of musical expresión that helps me bring meaning to live.

Please take a peak at my new releases composed and arranged during my stay in the Pyrenees in 2016.

 

Stay tuned for the full collection of 12 tracks that I will slowly release during the year 2017 .
