“Lewis and Sullivan play with fire!” Metro
Manos Puestas Trio are a UK based group playing Gypsy Jazz, Be-bop, Latin and Rumba.
Comprising 2 guitars, vocals and double bass, the Trio has many years experience between them, and all members have played throughout Europe including Montreux Jazz, WOMAD and Glastonbury Festivals
Re-interpreting jazz standards in a different style, Jon Lewis and Matt Sullivan play guitar with a Flamenco technique – that’s right, not a plectrum to be seen! This brings a unique feel to the tunes, particularly those of Django Reinhardt, Charlie Parker and Thelonious Monk.
In 2014, Matt Watson joined them on double bass and vocals, enhancing the Latin feel and leaving lots of room for improvisation and up-beat danceable rhythms.
