Musician

Andre Matos

The distance between modern post-bop sounds and free jazz suffused with high-tech experimentalism narrows significantly on the new CD Quare, from André Matos, a brilliant young guitarist and Portuguese native now living in the United States. Released on Greg Osby's Inner Circle Music, Quare is Matos' third album as a leader, and it features his spectral playing in various musical settings with accompaniment from some of the top young jazz artists on the scene today.

Matos possesses a strikingly mature musical vision for an artist still in his late twenties. His first release, 2005's Pequenos Mundos (Small Worlds), showcases a more languid guitar style that stands atop the arrangements, but with his second album, Rosa-Shock, Matos began taking a more integrated approach in terms of balancing his instrumental voice with that of his band mates

André Carvalho: Lost In Translation

Read "Lost In Translation" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


Bassist Andre Carvalho conceived this album around the concept of “untranslatable words"—words for concepts that have no equivalent outside of their native language. He has used this idea to create a cycle of amorphous composition, realized here by a trio of bass, guitar and saxophone with the occasional addition of trumpet. The words come from languages ...

André Carvalho: The Garden Of Earthly Delights

Read "The Garden Of Earthly Delights" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


This third album from Portuguese bassist André Carvalho is a study in contrasts. Inspired by the work of artist Hieronymus Bosch—his style in general and, of course, the titular painting—Carvalho set about composing a long-form work reflecting the range and balance of character(s) endemic to the mysterious Dutch painter's creations. This stunning suite is the result. ...

Sara Serpa & André Matos: Primavera

Read "Primavera" reviewed by Robert Bush


Although there are (mostly) just two musicians on Primavera, the first recorded collaboration between Portuguese songbird Sara Serpa and guitarist Andre Matos--one couldn't ask for a more sonically lustrous offering. That's partially due to the result of judiciously applied multitracking, and to the intricate melodic sense of both musicians. There is nary an extra note or ...
