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: 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 ...

Sara Serpa & André Matos: Primavera

Read "Primavera" reviewed by Mark Corroto

A little bit of magic is evident in the recording Primavera by the Portuguese-born-now-New Yorkers Sara Serpa and André Matos. Not magic as in sleight of hand or illusion, but magical as in enchanting and, indeed, spellbinding. The musical pair, also wife and husband, created this duo recording with the help of some of their own ...

Sara Serpa: Mobile

Read "Mobile" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Portuguese singer Sara Serpa is what is produced when the talents of Gretchen Parlato, Simin Tander and Tierney Sutton coalesce. Her voice is light and elastic, sporting a fierce intellect. Couple this with a vision/sense of humor of a Nicholas Urie and the result is a radioactive type of 21st Century Beat Poetry. Like Urie and ...

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
