Nylon guitarist, Ethan 'Sultry' Margolis lived in Spain for more than a decade. In 2010 he moved to Los Angeles and formed his world quintet whose primary focus is on the open and improvisational space that jazz and flamenco music share. Dissonant chording and pursuit of unique groove patterns are part of his signature. Highly influenced by his mentors within the Gypsy circuit of Andalucía, Margolis's hybrid compositions reflect the intricate phrasings of his instrumental and vocal melodies. His 2014 release entitled Soleangeles and his 2016 release Sonikete Blues were both featured by iTunes in several countries. Margolis has performed as a soloist around the world and has been featued by All About Jazz, LA Weekly, the LA TIMES, NY TIMES, etc. Margolis has collaborated with Bill Watterson (Calvin and Hobbes, El Farru (dancer, Paco de Lucía), Judith Hill (20 feet from stardom), and is a featured soloist on Omar Faruk Tekbilek's newest album.
