Mike Smiarowski Live : Latin Moods

"Live, Fiery, Passionate Acoustic Flamenco / Jazz Improvisations"

Hello. My name is Mike Smiarowski : Guitarist / Composer. I write and play Instrumental music that appeals to all ages and races. My music is an eclectic blend of many styles of music.

After releasing three studio CDs: 'Island Fantasy,' 'Island Fantasy - Part-II', and 'Fusion,' -- which have been on the Grammy Awards Ballot in years - 2007, 2008, 2009, 2013 in a total of 18 categories! and have been featured on 'Air Force One' - I've decided to release a "Live", totally acoustic, Flamenco / Jazz Improvisations CD to show another side of my musical creations!

These songs were created totally "Live," showing my love of all forms of Latin music, especially Flamenco! I've always been inspired by the catchy melody lines and great wealth of rhythms incorporated and pure emotion that is expressed. With this combination - it always makes it interesting for the listener.

I've been inspired by great movies from the past including 'The Magnificent Seven' with the great musical score by the great Elmer Bernstein. In fact, I dedicate a song to him on my 'Fusion' CD: 'Spanish/Mexican Fantasy,' which is with my Electric band. This "Live" recording is all Acoustic.

Also, other inspirations have been the so-called Spaghetti Westerns and many TV shows which incorporated a lot of Spanish/Mexican music.

This "Live" CD displays my Improvising skills in creating songs and solos on the spot! Some of the tunes - Tracks 5 & 6 - are vehicles for pure Flamenco. By the way, these tracks are named: 'Fiery, Passionate Flamenco - Parts I & II. '

I've wanted to release a "Live" CD for a long time. I want people to feel the magic of my concert performances. I draw energy from the audience, and that in turn inspires me to give everything I have emotionally, and that makes my musical performance better!
