Infusing classical and flamenco guitar with jazz riffs and contemporary melodies, composer and guitarist Hernan Romero brings world/jazz to a new realm with his latest release, Un Segundo Una Vida. Spiced with the exotic traditions that influence flamenco-gypsy, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean folk-and interwoven with textures of classical, jazz, and Latin rhythms, Romero's music is both sophisticated and accessible. It is sensuous, passionate, romantic and inescapably infectious.

Inspired by the music of his family from earliest memory, Argentinean-born Romero would become part of his family's performing ensemble by the age of four. Romero's mother, popular International singer Estela Raval, contributed to surrounding young Romero with the best of musical environments.

Receiving classical guitar training in his youth from Roberto Lara one of Andres Segovia's disciples, Romero became strongly influenced by the Flamenco style when the family moved from Buenos Aires to Cadiz in Andalucia, Spain. "It's powerful, flamenco is very strong, and has its influence from the Middle East," says Romero. "The other side is the romantic aspect of Latin music, so it's absolutely the best of both worlds."

In 1986 Romero moved to New York. Teaching classical guitar in the Music program at Five Towns College in Long Island soon after his arrival, Romero also continued his education with a Masters in Composition and Orchestration at the Manhattan School of Music. Playing in jazz clubs around town, Romero was soon working with some of world's finest guitarists, including Al Di Meola, Paco De Lucia and John McLaughlin. In 1990, Romero produced and played on Di Meola Plays Piazzola, beginning a fertile association with Di Meola that resulted in nine other albums including Orange and Blue for Rhino Records in 1994 and The Infinite Desire for Telarc in 1998.

Romero's own passionate music and performance is featured on a series of CD's starting in the late 1990s. Zonda (Palmetto, 1999) by Conosur, the name Romero gave to the ensemble, features Romero's fiery guitar and sensual compositions flavored with Latin and flamenco strains.

Romero completed Romero-Live at Trinity Church recorded at the landmark Trinity Church in New York City. The impassioned strains of Romero's virtuosity-both as a player and composer-offer listeners a vibrant and exhilarating sound. This magical performance lingers on the musical palette and is not easily forgotten.

Romero has joined forces with the independent label, 333Entertainment, which recorded mixed and repackaged Live at Trinity Church. The event was captured in discrete mulitichannel sound, taking advantage of the exceptional acoustics at Trinity Church. Romero's compositions for Live at Trinity Church present intense and evocative music complimented by a lyrical style, which is sure to influence aspiring guitarists for generations to come. 333 Entertainment plans to re-release "Trinity" on CD in late September and in discrete multichannel by January '03.

Romero's most recent album-Un Segundo Una Vida is scheduled for release by 333 Entertainment late August 2002. This album brought Romero's flamenco and Latin-based jazz to new realms, with the addition of more complex orchestration, additional instrumentation including the melodic strings of a chamber orchestra, and a wide array of penetrating vocals.

While Romero continues to captivate audiences in New York City clubs and on tour throughout Europe, his composing and performing skills as a collaborator remain in high demand. There is a soon to be released new effort with long time friend Al Di Meola. Saxophonist Chico Freeman's latest release, "Oh By The Way," features Romero's composing and musical skills throughout, while a recent session with Grammy Award winning vocalist Alicia Keys should appear on her next release.

No doubt: My favorite CD!
I don't wanna make comments about Hernan's abilities of playing guitar, he is simply ingenious. But let me stress that the vocals, especially the song "La vida nueva" (as someone mention before), are tremendous as well.

Habaneros have nothing on this guy when it comes to hot, juicy, blood boiling La
No amount of caffeine, no amount of tabasco, can match the sheer heat and fire of this explosive Latin cd with passion dripping from its pores; it will burn holes in your britches! Hot diggity! Something like Sting meets the Gypsy Kings with their tails on fire. The energy never lets up in this album; with smoking, aggressive guitar, sensual and sizzling vocals and percussion. With both outright passion and mischevious mystique, hold on to your blood pressure and brace yourself on an ice block because this is not for the faint of heart. Phew! Can I get some AC in here?!
