descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Some music lovers believe that the quality an improviser needs most is not technical skill, or even creativeness, but personality characteristics, an ability to socialize, musically or not, with other people. Improvised music starts BEFORE any music is made. A musician who can't communicate off stage and outside the studio surely won't be able to when creating music in a group. The four members of this combo interact with each other with joy and commitment, and they know how to transmit those good vibes to the audience. Although he came from a rock and blues background - Luís' hero is Jimi Hendrix, which is apparent in his playing - soon Lopes became interested in "free-form" jazz. He never wanted to interpret jazz standards. Instead of embracing jazz conventions, he preferred to deal with pure improvisation. His compositional work, in consequence, is conceived to enhance improvisation, not to conform it with pre-established and rigid structures. The other members of the Humanization Quartet share the same profile. Luís Lopes' companions in this debut record are saxophonist Rodrigo Amado, an ascending force in the international free-bop scene, and the powerful rhythm section (the kind that keep things pumping beyond all expectations) of the brothers Stefan and Aaron González, sons of trumpeter Dennis González and his partners in the trio Yels at Eels. The results are intense, joyful playing."-Clean Feed Records


Artist Biographies:

"Portuguese saxophonist (alto, C melody, baritone, and tenor) Rodrigo Amado specializes in free-form, composition-in-the-moment jazz, and his various projects and trios have given him an international following. Born in Lisbon in 1964, Amado began studying the sax at the age of 17, briefly at the Hot Club Music School of Lisbon and with mentors Carlos Martins, Pedro Madaleno, and Jorge Reis, among other leading Portuguese jazz artists. With diverse musical interests, he explored how improvisation is handled in other genres, although his work with his various ensembles like the Lisbon Improvisation Players and the Motion Trio (with Miguel Mira and Gabriel Ferrandini) falls clearly under the umbrella of 21st century jazz, and he has been an in-demand studio player on numerous recorded projects. He started his own label, Clean Feed, in 2001, with brothers Pedro and Carlos Costa, before leaving the imprint in 2005 to start a second label, European Echoes. Also an accomplished professional photographer, Amado continues to be a bright light on the Portuguese and international improvisational jazz scene."
