Space Quartet: Directions

Read "Directions" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Listen closely to Directions by Rafael Toral's Space Quartet and try to ignore the voice in your head of June Tyson chanting, “space is the place, space is the place." While this is an instrumental production and Toral was born more than fifty years after Sun Ra, a similar aura permeates these six tracks. It's not ...

RED Trio & Celebration Band: Suite 10 Years Anniversary

Read "Suite 10 Years Anniversary" reviewed by John Sharpe

Since its inception in 2008 the RED Trio has been one of Portugal's foremost improvising ensembles. Pianist Rodrigo Pinheiro, bassist Hernani Faustino and drummer Gabriel Ferrandini stand upon the shoulders of the egalitarian trio legacy of pianists Bill Evans, Paul Bley and Howard Riley; no-one leads, no-one follows, but, paradoxically, all three move as one. To ...

Sei Miguel: (Five) Stories Untold

Read "(Five) Stories Untold" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

As he did on his two previous Clean Feed albums Suite for a Jazz Combo (2010) and Salvation Modes (2014), Portuguese trumpeter Sei Miguel works with the pocket variety of the instrument and sounds superb in the process. With (Five) Stories Untold he utilizes a revolving cast of players in tempering abstraction with an abundance of ...

Sei Miguel: Salvation Modes

Read "Salvation Modes" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Here, Portuguese trumpeter, composer Sei Miguel delves into his stockpile of older compositions that were seldom performed or recorded. And his customary, eccentric mode of operations is structured in an enticingly bizarre approach to jazz and jazz improvisation. On this release comprised of three extended tracks, the artist employs two quartets and a ten-piece ensemble as ...

Sei Miguel: Salvation Modes

Read "Salvation Modes" reviewed by John Ephland

A delicacy pervades this music from start to finish. Sei Miguel's Salvation Modes is flush with silence, interludes, the sounds of musical instruments that made you love them in the first place. The disc is spread over three extended pieces: the first piece, “Preludio e Cruz De Sala," including trumpeter Miguel with guitarist Pedro Gomes, trombonist ...

Sei Miguel - Pedro Gomes: Turbina Anthem

Read "Turbina Anthem" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Il dialogo fra i portoghesi Miguel e Gomes si svolge più su un sostanziale contrasto dinamico e timbrico che sull'integrazione fra voci complementari. La pocket trumpet di Miguel possiede una sonorità incerta e smorzata (forse derivata da certe inflessioni di Bill Dixon), che potrebbe nascondere un suo lirismo reticente, ma si basa, almeno in queste incisioni, ...
