descriptions, reviews, &c.
1 studio and 2 live pieces from this active quartet, led by trumpeter Miguel Sei. The pieces mix tonal brass work with chirping, ringing and scratching electronics and percussion. Sei has a muted and airy tone that contrasts with a bolder and smeary tone from trombonist Fala Mariam. Toral's electronics work well with Burago's minimal percussive additions, a curious combination that works well in this minimal environment. The playing is restrained and considerate, a mixture of traditional jazz voice with modern micro-improvisation in an electro-acoustic setting. Very interesting...

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."
