Trama no Navio


Album Description

João Pedro Brandão is a Portuguese musician that moves between written music and free improvisation. He gathers an unprecedented group of musicians with strong and unique musical personalities. Ricardo Moreira on the piano and Hammond, the contrabassist Hugo Carvalhais and Marco Cavaleiro on the drums. Together, they make a journey through a very personal music universe. In September 2019, the Matosinhos Jazz Orchestra (OJM), challenged some composers to do a piece as a form of soundtrack for the Serguei Eisenstein movie “Battleship Potemkin”. I was asked to create something for the second part “Drama on the deck”. For me, it was an incredibly defiant project, special for the film magnitude and this part, that has a very dense and intense narrative with a very tragic as poetic closure. In the end of this process, I felt the need to extend the work furthermore, so the music was transposed for a smaller and free set of musicians. Choosing them was determinant for the way the project took. With this group the original music was stripped of its artefacts and adornments, leaving only its backbones. A new piece emerged from the musician’s contributions and interactions. "Brandão's leadership and leadership, combined with the individual quality of the actors — Moreira, Carvalhais and Cavaleiro — results in a magnificent album of creative jazz, which can act as an accompaniment to the images of the revolt of the sailors, but it goes further. It's a song that stands by itself own, a modern and live jazz with space for individual intervention, which opens up to improvisation and gains from this opening.” ***** In Ipsilon, Público
