descriptions, reviews, &c.

"The international specialized press already presented Sei Miguel as the "best well kept secret" of the Portuguese creative music scene. It begins not to be true: the refined sound art of this idiosincratic trumpeter already circulates in the four corners of the world, and this puzzling but beautiful CD is another contribution to make him a wider justice.

Positioned in the fringes of the Lisbon jazz scene because of his very personal approach (John Cage being such an important reference to Sei Miguel as those of black jazz trompeters), we hear him in Esfíngico working with a classical music format, the suite. And we sure do feel each piece, or movement, as the part of a global compositional concept. Again with Sei Miguel we find Rafael Toral, more known and celebrated outside Portugal, specifically in the experimental and electronic music circuits, but always a confessed admiror of his fellow musician. The other members of the band are Miguel's usual partners: the very fluent Fala Mariam (alto trombone), the sober yet lyrical Pedro Lourenço (bass guitar), and the essentialist César Burago (percussion).

It's clear that the score was created for these performers and not for their instruments, like Duke Ellington did in his time. And that means this is music with an incredible human dimension, cooperative, participated and, most importantly, felt."-Clean Feed


Artist Biographies:

"Plays his trumpet with complete awareness of the whole Jazz history while dealing, as a music director, with the full spectrum of sound sources in a broad range of innovative (and often strange) solutions, including frequent use of electronics. He has created his own music system, allowing him to take his open pieces to a high degree of perfection.

Director, arranger and trumpeter, Sei Miguel considers himself a simple jazzman, which, he says, isn't always easy. Born in 1961, Paris, lived in Brazil and France until settling down in Portugal during the 80's. Since 1986 he has been directing formations of variable geometry. Having performed in Portugal, Germany, Italy and Brazil, among his many regular collaborators are not only guitarists Rafael Toral and Manuel Mota, but also extraordinaire trombone player and painter Fala Mariam and virtuoso percussionist César Burago. Miguel has also written music for theater and ballet."

"Born in Lisbon. Some academic training did not foster in her an interest for musical creation. In 1980, during a trip to the north of India, she intuited the sacred fire of true music, that she will find again in the more initiatic jazz and the gratifying discovery of several trombonists. Sei Miguel´s "sideman" since 1983, she partakes in all his works."
