Album Description

The winner of the 2nd edition of the Composition Award Bernardo Sassetti is Pedro Melo Alves, born 1991. The Porto-based musician submitted 3 original compositions that deeply impressed the jury with their unique rhythmical patterns and sound textures. In 2017 he recorded his first album as composer and band leader with the newly founded Omnae Ensemble (Ensemble Portugal em Jazz 2016) featuring his original compositions as well as arrangements of compositions by Bernardo Sassetti. “This is thoughful jazz, intellectual, open towards contributions from contemporary classical music. This is a kind of jazz that is questioning, inquiring, that refuses to be normative, that explores. And, above all, jazz that shows delightful links to the composition masterpiece “Unreal: Sidewalk Cartoon” by Bernardo Sassetti.“ – Rui Eduardo Paes
