His work includes compositions for small jazz ensembles blending a variety of eclectic instrumentation, both acoustic and electric. Lately he has been writing for chamber string ensembles fading the boundaries between modern jazz to classical. This new jazz-classical composition is titled ”Almadraba” and will premier in October 2018. Throughout his career, Oscar Peñas has been committed to creating new musical works and constantly working to evolve improvisations and melodies in his instrument.
Peñas’ extraordinary group of gifted musicians features bassist Moto Fukushima (a six-string player with guitar-like flexibility), versatile and fine drummer Richie Barshay, and joining together the sounds of his instrument is Gregoire Maret.
