Flamenco jazz is a style which mixes flamenco with jazz. As flamenco artists in the 1960s and 1970s such as Paco de Lucia and Cameron de la Isla, started experimenting with traditional music they had learned in childhood, a Nuevo Flamenco, a newly evolved flamenco style. As more musicians around the world also experimented by mixing flamenco with other genres in the 1970s and 1980s, artists started recording albums full of impressive techniques, flamenco rhythms, and improvised solos over jazz chord sequences.
