Carlos Alberto Jimenez

Artist of the Month | September 2017


Finally a system that works! The PowerMix Pure XT System by K&K is the answer for live nylon string guitar. I had been using the Pure Classic Pickup for a while and was very surprised at how the quality of the sound was kept through the pickup. When I upgraded to the PowerMix Pure XT, I was astonished at how much control I had on sound, volume and EQ. Whether I play solo, with my trio or with a larger ensemble, the PowerMix Pure XT gives me exactly what I need: control, precision and quality.

Jazz guitarist, composer and teacher, Carlos Jiménez is a very active musician on the Montreal jazz scene. He has shared the stage with some of the most expressive names in Canadian jazz. His versatility and ability to play various styles on both electric and classical instruments has made him a first choice guitarist for various ensembles. In December 2013 he released a new trio album entitled JOGO. A collection of modern jazz standards, brazilian songs and original compositions.

Along with his work as a sideman, Carlos Jiménez was featured on various recordings and radio shows such as Jazz Beat and Canada Live, produced by the CBC. He can be heard on the soundtrack of the Oscar winning short movie The Danish Poet, produced by the National Film Board of Canada. Carlos Jiménez currently teaches Jazz Guitar at College Vincent d’Indy in Montreal. He is also on faculty at the Schulich School of Music of McGill University.

“Jiménez is obviously a technically proficient guitarist and is capable of working creatively and effortlessly within a trio format, emphasizing the harmonic progressions by skilfully dropping chords in and amongst his deft single line work to maintain a sense of the harmonic architecture of the pieces.”
