A unique fusion of Spanish Guitar with percussion and piano colors.

Who said that classical guitar is boring? Alex & Mutual Friends bring a new game to town.

Their unique art, controversially rooted in a mix of the Classical academic tradition of following written charts, and collaborative spontaneous improvisations, discovers a fresh approach. The philosophy of the band is to make improvisational music more relevant to all audiences by using a pop or R&B sensibility, fiery flamenco energy and the new age sound palettes of modern jazz. It is simply music that speaks to your heart. Every time, the music is unique, emotional and recognizable.

It is enriched by Latin and American cultures and is delivered through the universal language of modern jazz. Mutual Friends is enchanting audiences with intricate improvisations, spell binding rhythms, and beautiful melodies.

Their music is mostly original work of the band leader, Alex Gordez, with virtuoso acoustic guitar/piano/percussion mix performed in modern styles with improvisations, similar to those of Vicente Amigo, Paco de Lucia or Al Di Meola. The music would also please fans of Astor Piazzolla, Avishai Cohen and Pat Metheny. Their approach to selected covers is very unique.
