The world acclaimed guitar master, Antonio Forcione, is delighted to be returning to perform at Crazy Coqs with his vibrant and original blend of jazz, Latin, African and flamenco sounds. The charismatic and inventive guitarist and composer will be performing songs from his brand new album, Sketches of Africa, along with some old favourites.
Antonio takes the guitar to new levels of expression and his numerous awards around the world are a testimony to his genius. Be prepared to both laugh and be moved as he celebrates the unexpected elements in life with delicacy, humour and not least, passion. International tours have brought high critical acclaim from as far as Australia and Hong Kong to Russia, the Caribbean, USA and all over Europe. His albums have variously topped UK and international jazz charts and he has shared the international stage with some of the world's most accomplished musicians.
"Forcione is mesmerising... passion, grace and fire" - The Times
"A performer of world class status... forceful and with an enviable technique, he takes the guitar to new levels of expression combining its melodic powers with dramatic percussive effects. Forcione boldly goes where no guitarist has gone before and the results are quite spectacular... miss him at your peril" - The Stage
"Possessing the skill, flair and stunning technique of Paco de Lucia and John McClaughlin, with the looks of a low rent middle-aged gigolo" - Omid Djalili
"Beautiful" - Stevie Wonder
