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.

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.

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, ...


Sei Miguel: Turbina Anthem

Read "Turbina Anthem" reviewed by John Sharpe

It's almost a given that any new release on the Lithuanian No Business label is going to be a bit out of the ordinary. As the catalogue grows, so does its depth and breadth. Turbina Anthem vouchsafes that proposition, comprising an unusual guitar and trumpet duet by two Portuguese improvisers who deserve a wider audience. Trumpeter ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
