Virtuoso flamenco guitarist/composer/improviser Juanito Pascual has been called "one of the hottest flamenco guitarists in recent years" by National Public Radio, a major accolade which in this case is just the jumping off point for the Minneapolis native's musical style. His sound is a truly organic blend of a mastery of traditional and contemporary flamenco plus influences ranging from Jimi Hendrix and the Grateful Dead to Miles Davis and J.S. Bach.

The Juanito Pascual New Flamenco Trio features two highly versatile and dynamic musicians, Jose Moreno (percussion/vocals) one of the most sought after flamenco artists in the U.S. percussion, and stunning bassist Brad Barrett (Jason Moran, Ran Blake). By combining their distinct musical backgrounds with a powerful personal chemistry, the Trio has created a fresh and exhilarating sound, performing to enthralled audiences throughout the U.S. and abroad, adding to their enthusiastic fan base with each performance.

Since the 2003 release of his debut solo recording "Cosas en Comun", Pascual's international touring schedule has brought him to venues including the Tanglewood Jazz Festival, New York's Lincoln Center, and Blue Note Jazz Club, The Panama Jazz Festival and Madrid's renowned Casa Patas.
