Enriquito Rodíguez Quartet

Enriquito, trumpeter with a flamenco soul who has become one of the great references of new national flamenco.

Flamenco and Jazz already form a genre in itself that has been established over the last decades, when the concern of pioneers such as Pedro Iturralde, Paco de Lucía, or Miles Davis himself shaped this revolutionary combination.

Since then, there have been many artists who have identified with this style and have marked a before and after in the consolidation of this genre, such as Jorge Pardo.

However, few trumpet players have entered the world of this flamenco-jazz fusion. We can highlight the figure of the great Miles Davis and his famous Saeta, which according to the great Enrique Morente was on a par with those of Caracol, Vallejo or La Niña de los Peines.

"Davis's arrow is on a par with those of Caracol, Vallejo or La Niña de los Peines" - E. Morente


Enrique Rodríguez 'Enriquito', is a trumpeter. composer and musician who in a very short time has risen as an indisputable figure of the new generation of young flamenco jazz players. At just 18 years old, the artist collaborated on various recording projects with flutist Jorge Pardo, who has been his main influence and guide on this path of musical experimentation.

The innate talent and the spectacular evolution of his sound make Enriquito consolidate himself as an artist at the level of great jazz musicians, embarking on the search for his own sound universe.


The artist has carved out a career full of successes in which he has had the opportunity to work alongside great artists and fill the stages with the most flamenco aroma and jazzy touch that characterizes him.

In 2005, after collaborating with Jorge Pardo in various concerts, Enriquito established himself as an international benchmark for Jazz, flamenco and traditional and improvised music, winning the Best European Musician award from the French Jazz Academy. He has been part of popular bands such as 'Canteca de Macao', 'Chambao', 'Juanito Makandé' and C.Tangana.
