“Levanto is fabulous flamenco that can stand alongside any created in Spain or by those inspired beyond its borders." -- World Music Central


The first ever CD of its kind produced in the US: Chris Burton Jácome’s newly released CD entitled, “LEVANTO” is a culmination of work in collaboration with CALO FLAMENCO: Ballet de Martín Gaxiola, a nationally-touring flamenco dance repertory company. This brilliant CD captures the raw emotion of flamenco with its rhythmical footwork, passionate vocals and blistering guitar work; an unforgettable recording documenting the symbiotic artistry shared between Chris Burton Jácome and CALO FLAMENCO artistic director, Martín Gaxiola.

“LEVANTO” is a celebration of culture; the culmination of all the tradition and richness of pure flamenco mixed with Chris’ unique musical perspective. The music from “LEVANTO” reflects the authenticity of Old World Spain coupled with beautiful contemporary creativity. Chris Burton Jácome’s CD “LEVANTO” will challenge and excite your thoughts about this gypsy art form while creating an unforgettable listening experience that will make you believe you are a part of the flamenco performance. This CD will have you yelling, “Olé!” long after you’ve finished listening to it.

“Powerful in some places and breath taking in others, Levanto certainly feels like an ascension process.”-- The Whole Music Experience

Chris is a master entertainer - and a great guy, too
The CD is inspired. Chris does not hesitate to share his great passion for Flamenco music. If you ever get the chance to hear Chris live then do not pass it up. He radiates his love of music.

Great music
I recently had the opportunity to see CBJ perform in a beautiful outdoor setting. Their music was exciting and inspiring. The crowd was mesmerized. Can't wait to listen to their CD.

CBJ knows Flamenco
I have been a fan for a couple of years now and ALWAYS look forward to a new release. You can't go wrong adding Chris' music to your library. Enjoy!


A feast for the senses!
If you have heard Chris's other albums, this CD is a a real feast of great music! There is a lot going on to keep things exciting: his incredible guitar playing, soulful singing, hypnotic flamenco clapping, and masterful fellow musicians. If you have never seen Chris live with the dancers, be sure to do it soon! It is an experience you'll never forget. The best song on this CD, in my opinion, is Sin Ti, but judge for yourself!
