About Oscar Peñas

Barcelona-born and New York-based guitarist, arranger, and composer Oscar Peñas make his west coast debut with this quartet performance. A recipient of the Jazz Road grant from the South Arts organization, Peñas was already a widely respected figure on the international jazz scene before settling in New York City a decade ago. Since then, he's genuinely blossomed, creating a singular body of work that weaves together elements of jazz, Spanish folk music, and the European classical tradition.

He often works with unorthodox instrumentation, in this case, violinist Sara Caswell, bassist Moto Fukushima, and drummer Richie Barshay. He doesn't blend disparate influences so much as stitch them together with an internal emotional logic. Peñas established a vital new voice in New York with two critically hailed albums, most recently 2014's Music of Departures and Returns featuring Gil Goldstein, Paquito D'Rivera, and Esperanza Spalding. His latest project Almadraba, inspired by the ancient sustainable fishing practices in Andalusia, featured bass legend Ron Carter and premiered in 2018 at the BAM Next Wave Festival.

A major league talent with an extensive musical imagination, Peñas embodies the limitless promise of jazz's global reach.
