SHOW REVIEW by Mari Katsigianis

BOSTON, MA: Just caught the show - AMAZING! Barbara Martinez continually grows in both her vocal repertoire and dance skills so that each time I see her, it's an evolution of her craft. Serpentine and gorgeous, she stunned the audience with Fandangos, Tangos, Alegrías, and Sevillanas. In fact, several Niña Pastori cuts, as well as a great Ketama number "Flor de Lis" (in total Brasilian Samba mode), were part of the show. She also arrived at Boston's "The Beehive" performance club in the South End, backed to the hilt with top-shelf musicians. Featured last night were: Gonzalo Grau on keyboard, Alex Alvear bass guitar, José Moreno flamenco guitar, and Sergio Martinez on percussion. Apparently she has a standing invitation to play this club and judging by the amount of fans, Bostonians know a great thing when they see (hear) it! If you're looking for high energy AND sensual dance moves, this is the group to see.

José Moreno played with great passion, and under the calculated orchestration of musical genius, Gonzalo Grau, the show came together in a seamless flow of compás and very tight, very astute footwork. (By the way, José is a terrific dancer in his own right.) The "cuerpo" or upper body work with arms, hands, and fingertips which Ms. Martinez achieved is almost ballet-like to behold. She's so graceful and fluid, while also singing (a near impossible feat) that it looks like nothing a human being should be capable of.

Sergio Martinez of Spain and local Salsa Great, Alex Alvear of Mango Blue, worked their respective magic to create a contemporary flamenco-jazz cuadro that was nothing short of incredible. New York audiences don't tolerate mediocrity, so it stands to reason that the Barbara Martinez Quartet had to be far better than the average group, they had to be, in a word, excellent. They play in and around the greater NY area with a revolving set of musicians as availability allows, refining and honing Flamenco, Rumba, and Salsa music in their unique style.

The crowd was generous with both jaleos and compás, (including yours truly) but sadly, I had to leave well into the second set. I envied those who got to stay. This group (in it's many permutations), is a DEFINITE must-see! If you're in one of the areas where they perform, it would be wise to make reservations quickly. Once you get there, you'll enjoy the show, and I guarantee expectations will not only be met, they'll be exceeded!

Please check the noticia at the beginning of this review for the 2nd and 3rd shows scheduled in the near future.
