Music Monday: Jesse Cook

I've been listening to this guy's music all weekend long, so of course I wanted to share it. :)

Jesse Cook is an amazing flamenco guitarist, but he also incorporates a lot of pop, jazz, energetic percussion, and world music into his recordings.

I'm offering up a song and a video. They don't match, but I wanted to show you a broad spectrum of his music. The song is "Come What May" and I think I've listened to it about 40 or 50 times in the past 3 days. I LOVE IT! I can't even put it into words. It's melodic and easy, sad, melancholy, hopeful...so many emotions in one instrumental piece. Please give it a listen. It's gorgeous! :D

This video is a medley of songs done by Jesse & his band at the PNE in Vancouver, BC last summer. Awesomely shot & edited by RayVanEng.
