” Guitarist-composer Cristian Amigo straddles the contemporary-classical, improv and rock worlds; no wonder he calls his Kingdom of Jones a “new music jam-band.” During any given performance, Messiaen grapples with Led Zeppelin while Perez Prado teaches Stravinsky to mambo.”
“ I kind of hate myself for digging this abrasive clatter [War is Good for Business] because it’s galaxies away from my Beatles- and Beethoven-forged sense of composition. But it rocks real hard against its orchestra of bloops and bleeps, and then breaks down to a mournful sound collage. A great theme for Halliburton’s symphony of opportunism.
“Cristian Amigo is an excellent creative artist, guitarist and composer whose works reflect his concern with tradition and innovation in creative music in America.”
– WADADA LEO SMITH (AACM composer/trumpeter)

    Hey Christian! I know you do not remember me but we went to school at St. Aedan’s in New Haven CT. I remember crying to my mom because the horrible teacher put you in the coat closet for a very long time. I googled you and I am happy to see you are doing so well. Glad we both survived our Catholic school upbringing! Best to you and your family. Margaret LeGrand McDonald

    • OMG. I totally remember you. I hope all is well with you too. Visited St. Aedans a few years back…quite a different place these days. I am in touch with Oscar Okwu and Patrick MacCormack from our grade. I did survive, but am kind of anti-clerical these days, probably because of the closet. 🙂 I’m on FB is you would like to communicate that way. also, my email is Really nice to hear from you. The best recent news is that I have a one year old daughter Daisy (my first) and I am overwhelmed with love for her.
