Miguel, Sei

O Carro De Fogo De Sei Miguel [VINYL]

Miguel, Sei: O Carro De Fogo De Sei Miguel [VINYL] (Clean Feed)

Recording live in the Namouche Studios in Lisbon in 2018, trumpeter Sei Miguel's octet performs a large work translating to "Fire Car", inspired by William Blake's "Jerusalem" (Chariot of Fire), reminding of early 70's Miles/fusion work as organist Andre Goncalves creates an atmospheric backbone over which the band introduces repetition and variation; mysterious and singular.

Artist Biographies:

"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."

"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."

sample the album:








descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Sei Miguel is no longer the "best kept secret" of the Portuguese creative music scene, as a British journalist once wrote: by this time his discography is disputed by the most demanding collectors in the world, and here it is a precious title to add to that list. Now fronting a group of eight players, the (pocket) trumpeter signs a marvelous treaty of jazz orchestration. Yes, jazz: it may sound excentric to some, but there's passages in "O Carro de Fogo de Sei Miguel" that would excite all the Alice Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders fans.

The instrumentation is unconventional, with three horns (including the less used alto trombone), a virtual organist, (virtual because the organ sounds - fundamental to the music - are introduced by a laptop computer), guitar, bass guitar, a percussionist dealing only with metals and skins, and another only with wood. The band includes musicians coming from rock, experimental music and free improvisation, this combination explaining part of the open approach to the jazz tradition. Each contribution is a little part of the whole, with the collective factor slowly building, through the repetition or subtle variation of short phrases. The built movement gets similar to the waves of the sea arriving at the beach sand, the end coming with a "fire music"-like climax (Carro de Fogo means Fire Car, by the way). What a journey!"-CLean Feed
