Through the performance of Andalusian thermes adapted to Jazz with his quintet, he created the so-called Jazz-Flamenco style (1964-66), subsequently adding flamenco guitar (Paco de Antequera and Paco De Algeciras) for the recording of 2 LPs (currently on CD with the BLUE NOTE label) and for the concert at the Berlin Jazz Festival (1967) and the recording of the LP Flamenco Jazz with Paco de Lucía on the guitar. He has performed in London with the European “All Star Big Band”, at the Palais des Beaux-Arts (Brussels) with his quartet and at the Beklee Performance Center in Boston with the “All Star Faculty Big Band”. Since 1965, he has collaborated with the National Orchestra of Spain, conducted by Frühbeck de Burgos, Sergiu Celibidache, López Cobos, E. García Asensio and Walter Weller among others, touring Europe, Japan and the USA and performing most of the orchestral saxophone repertoire. On his own initiative, the saxophone professor chair was created at the RCSM in Madrid, which he assumed after taking a competitive examination and the taught until his retirement in 1994.
