Guimarães Jazz
Domingo, 13 novembro - 22h
Plataforma das Artes e da Criatividade / Black Box 
Projeto Guimarães Jazz / Porta-Jazz #3 - MIRRORS


João Mortágua - saxofone
Ricardo Formoso - trompete
Virxilio da Silva - guitarra
Felix Barth - contrabaixo / baixo eléctrico
Iago Fernández - bateria
Hernani Reis Baptista - instalação

A colaboração entre a Porta-Jazz e o Guimarães Jazz tem como princípio basilar o cruzamento entre música e outra área artística, levando os intervenientes a interagir no processo de criação e performance, encontrando outras formas e elementos para a composição e improvisação em tempo real, como produto de uma residência artística a realizar na semana anterior à apresentação durante o festival.

A formação integra artistas portugueses, mas o convite a músicos emergentes no panorama europeu é também uma premissa neste projecto conjunto, para que se estreitem ou criem laços entre jovens músicos portugueses e estrangeiros. O resultado do trabalho será registado e editado através do Carimbo Porta-Jazz, o braço editorial da Associação Porta-Jazz.

MIRRORS
"E se houver mais vida para lá dos espelhos?" 

Em parceria com o artista plástico Hernâni Reis Batista, MIRRORS propõe-se explorar as reflexões da luz enquanto portais para um espaço inter dimensional, em que dos espelhos surgem novas sensações e até novos paradigmas. 

Num clima de constante descoberta, o mundo que conhecemos metamorfoseia-se a partir da luz que incide em vidros giratórios, mas também a partir de espelhos musicais que emanam de si uma outra arte: a que é feita de nós mesmos; nós, enquanto ser coletivo. 

A criação artística deste projeto parte assim do sentir terreno e da respetiva reação a essa viagem sónica, através do portal-espelho e evolução inerente.


Miguel Lamas - Melted Lives (2016)


Con tan sólo 23 años y después de trabajar con artistas como Raimundo Amador, Miguel Ríos, Tomasito, O’Funk’illo, Abraham Mateo y un largo etcétera… además de haber realizado clinics y Master Class por medio mundo para las marcas de las cuales es Artista Internacional; Pearl Drums, Zildjian Cymbals, Evans Drumheads y Wincent Drumsticks, el joven músico Gallego decide lanzar su primer disco en solitario, “Melted Lives”.

Un álbum donde se fusionan una amalgama de estilos como funk, jazz, rock, flamenco e incluso sonoridades cercanas a la música de cine. Esta travesía musical se ha materializado gracias a los músicos con los que ha contado para la grabación y con los cuales ha crecido y se ha desarrollado como músico casi desde sus comienzos, Iago Mouriño (piano), Pablo Añón (saxo y efectos) y Octavio Vargas (bajo) los cuales también le acompañarán en directo.

demás de la banda, han colaborado músicos de la talla de Tom Kennedy, Pepe Bao, Álvaro Gandul, Jorge Pérez (Patáx) o Andreas Lutz. Artistas como Dennis Chambers, Gergo Borlai o Roy Hargrove elogian la manera personal de tocar del joven Lamas.

Warsaw Improvisers Orchestra - CSW 14_03_2015 (SLUCHAJ FUNDACJA 2016)



Established in 2013 and currently having over 50 floating members, the Warsaw Improvisers Orchestra acts as a resource for musicians to meet and work in a large improvising ensemble, or in smaller units within a larger context. 

Spontaneous music making is our remit, but on occasion, scores both regular and graphic may be used as well as visual cues presented by visual artists. 

The orchestra is a chance for people to develop a deeper understanding of the relationship of sound and how it functions. The substantial power at the orchestra’s disposal can be deployed in many ways ; sometimes raw, sometimes melodic, occasionally melancholic; rhythmical or abstract but always with a sense of purpose. 

The music on this CD was recorded in early 2015 and was the biggest orchestra show we had done up to this point. 

Numbering 29 musicians from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines, the music composed “live in the moment”, without any preconceived intention, moves through a variety of styles. From contemporary classical to ecstatic free jazz, noise to electronica, moments of stillness to avant rock. 

Sounds felt at the time are combined to take the musicians and listeners on a journey where certain moods are created and emotions are felt that indicate new possibilities and directions in which to “take the music” or “let the music take you”. 
WIO relies on the generosity of the musicians that take part, the audience that follow us and promoters that help us - without you this would never happen. To you we give a heartfelt thanks.

DELIVERS A CAPTIVATING BLEND OF BRAZILIAN MUSIC AND JAZZ
FROM THE ACOUSTIC TRIO BRAZZAMERICA 
THE STUNNING DEBUT CD BRAZZAMERICA


In the fresh sounds of Brazzamerica, three veteran Brazilian-American musicians tell their life story in the universal language of great music.

What can you expect from Brazzamerica? The name says it all. “We wanted to show the flavor of the music, we wanted a name that would say: We play Brazilian music, jazz, and American music,” explains Brazzamerica bassist Leco Reis. Following their goal of expressing themselves with something more personal than simply familiar Brazilian music, they created a harmonious and intriguing blend reflecting “not just our experience as Brazilians who came to the U.S., but how our music changed from living here. Our music tells our story.”

On their self-titled debut recording, Brazzamerica, pianist Cidinho Teixeira, bassist Leco Reis, and drummer Edson Ferreira display an exciting level of telepathy, communication, and understanding in their musical interactions. Such synchronicity can’t be forced, only developed over time. The threesome has been gigging steadily in New York for the past five years, a rare luxury these days, and the result is this CD full of delightful music that will leave listeners wishing for more.

All three are Brazil born and enjoyed striking musical success in their native land before making the move to the U.S. While Brazzamerica is basically a collective, with each member contributing ideas and arrangements, bassist Leco Reis and drummer Edson Ferreira have the utmost respect for their senior colleague, pianist Cidinho Teixeira, who composes much of their repertoire. “He’s been a force in Brazilian music for so long, he has his own identity and he inspires us,” Reis declares.

Pianist Cidinho Teixeira gained renown in his native Brazil before moving to the U.S. two decades ago. To this day, he is so beloved that the cream of the Brazilian music crop is likely to show up to pay their respects at Teixeira’s gigs.

An in-demand composer, arranger, and pianist, Teixeira has extensive global touring and recording experience, accompanying renowned musicians such as Gilberto Gil, Djavan, Lene Andrade, Gal Costa, Simone, and Harry Belafonte. The pianist has recorded with cult favorites like singers Mark Murphy and Blossom Dearie.

Teixeira has released a half-dozen albums in his own name, ranging from solo and duo efforts to large ensembles, from studio recordings to live at Zinc Bar. Long acclaimed by fellow musicians for his prodigious rhythm chops, Teixeira was inspired to share his expertise by writing a book on the subject, “Brazilian Rhythm on the Keyboard.”

Bassist Leco Reis has been in demand on New York’s music scene for more than 10 years. In addition to Brazilian and jazz, listeners are likely to catch him gigging in contemporary improvised music settings. A Berklee College of Music grad with an advanced degree from Queens College, Reis is now on the music faculty of Sacred Heart University.


Triple-threat Edson Ferreira is a talented multi-tasker. Besides playing drums, he is a brilliant percussionist and producer with more than 20 years experience. He studied at Sao Paulo Conservatory and has played concerts, clubs and festivals worldwide, both as a leader and as an in-demand sideman.

The tunes on Brazzamerica are a mix of Teixeira originals and Brazilian music standards. In choosing the material, the threesome wanted to include Brazilian songs but wanted to avoid the presenting the bossa nova style as it was played in the U.S. in the 1960s and 1970s. They aimed for “something with a swing to it, and a good groove. It had to be good to listen to and fun to play,” Leco Reis points out.

Bursting with energy and rough elegance, Brazzamerica’s sound has a deceptive simplicity, full of the interactions that result from a total of well over a century of collective experience among the three. CD highlights include:

The lively opener, “Quintessencia,” sets the mood and promises good things to come. It’s a great introduction to the light-handed drummer Edson Ferreira. The trio’s delightful interplay and strong solos prove they’re all on the same wavelength, and it’s a very cool one.


“So What/Samba Do Carioca Wav” is an imaginative take on one of the most beloved and widely recognized melodies in jazz, Miles Davis’ “So What,” from the legendary album Kind of Blue.

“Vera Cruz” is elegant yet lighthearted, with a compelling subtle drive. If only it were longer! We could listen to the trio go to town on this groove all day long. Elegance is audible again in the deliberately paced “Canario,” and the stately “Cecilias,” while “Samba Da Lira” evokes a day at the beach with a vibe so relaxed you can practically imagine the sound of gently lapping waves.

Rhythm is the star in “Lim Sim,” featuring a great bass line, with Reis and Teixeira in tight synch, supported by Ferreira’s subtle percussion. There’s also plenty of dynamic soloing on this intriguing tune.

Teixeira trips the light fantastic on the keys on “Cev Mar”; there’s a gorgeous arco bass opening to the hypnotic “Passarim”; the energetic “Ginga Do Mane” is a high-energy cooker that’s imaginative and engaging. Bass also makes a strong but subtle statement in “Mariama.” “A Ra” has a lilting melody that sounds crisp and fresh, building up to a big finish; “Imagen” opens with great drive, and the rest of the tune lives up to the mood set from the get-go.

Drawing on styles explored and lessons learned through their extensive and varied life history, Brazzamerica has an exciting story to tell within this elegant and inspired new CD.
