Alfonso Adan (1976) is a European jazz guitarist, composer, and recording artist. With more than 30 years of experience as a performer, his style characterizes by a carefully crafted compositional technique where he combines elements of classical and modern music, with a strong influence and knowledge of Afro-American music and European jazz.
Currently, Alfonso is promoting his most recent recording material called New Morning, an album recorded in quartet with Drew Gress on double bass, Sam Revaz on piano, and Paul Shaw on drums, in which Alfonso performs a total of twelve original compositions that are played within a modern and innovative jazz context. In this album, Alfonso develops a new style in a modal and polymodal compositional frame, in which he simultaneously uses double harmonies, creating different colors and expectations within the avant-garde jazz world. Alfonso is regularly playing in jazz venues and clubs of Greenwich Village in New York City.
