Jesse Cook Brings His Unique Flamenco Sounds to the Big KC Next Week

Located in downtown Kansas City in the Power & Light District, Arvest Bank Theatre at the Midland has hosted well-known artists throughout its history. With state-of-the-art sound, lighting and amenities that enhance the historic ambiance, guests can experience entertainment at its best when Jesse Cook performs on January 23rd!

Jesse Cook is considered one of the most influential figures in nuevo flamenco, incorporating flamenco rumba, jazz, and many other forms of world music into his work. He is a Juno Award winner, Acoustic Guitar Player's Choice Award silver winner in the Flamenco Category, and a three-time winner of the Canadian Smooth Jazz award for Guitarist of the Year. He has recorded on the EMI, E1 Music and Narada labels and has sold over 1.5 million records worldwide.

For Jesse Cook, music has been a journey—sonically and literally. After two decades of crisscrossing the world in restless pursuit of inspiration, innovation and collaboration, the Paris-born, Toronto-raised Cook changed course for his ninth studio album “One World.”

Despite its humble home-made origins, “One World” begins another chapter for the multi-tasking artist, composer and producer’s quest. What results is the most sonically diverse and distinctive disc in Cook’s vast and varied catalogue, which has earned 11 Juno nominations and a win for 2000’s Free Fall. On these 11 instrumentals, programmed beats and dusty electronic textures are interwoven with syncopated handclaps, deep dubby bass-lines and popping percussion. Naturally, Cook’s masterful guitar work commands center stage with its elegant balance of subtlety, in-the-moment honesty and blazing technical prowess. But here, it also pivots between worlds — past and future, familiar and fresh, acoustic and electronic — redefined by technology like every element of modern life.

Now, you can see the album played live at Arvest Bank Theatre at the Midland. Tickets for this concert are $34.50-$45 and are available for purchase now. This is a show for all ages, and we hope to see you there.

Even though Edgewater at City Center Apartments in Lenexa, Kansas provides you with all of the comfort, convenience, and entertainment you could possibly desire, we encourage our residents to venture outside of our apartment community and explore all that the city has to offer!
