Pianist Julio Resende's International Quartet with Spanish saxophonist Perico Sambeat, Norway's Ole Morten Vagan on bass, &c., modern jazz plus one Pink Floyd cover(!).

Resende, Julio
Assim Falava Jazzatustra

Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    

"After the success of his debut album, Da Alma, comes the confirmation of the status obtained by the young pianist Julio Resende with a second project, "Assim Falava Jazzatustra". His International Quartet includes notable Spanish alto saxophonist Perico Sambeat, a renowned bassist from Norway, Ole Morten Vagan, and the cream of the new generation of Portuguese jazz: Joel Silva as the permanent drummer and the invited artists, in one track, Desiderio Lázaro (tenor saxophone), João Custódio (bass) and, coming from the pop band Clã, Manuela Azevedo (voice). For this effort, Resende proposed himself, and to the other participants, to refuse in their playing anything that could hide or alienate their own personal styles, in the search of authenticity. Following this principle, the quartet deals only with original compositions. With one exception: a jazz cover of a rock "classic", "Shine On Your Crazy Diamond", by Pink Floyd. The special guests have an important contribution: Sambeat is a top figure in Spain, either performing in a post-bop format or leading flamenco-jazz mixed formulas. An heir of the style of Charles Mingus, Vagan is a sideman of first choice by important names like Jonas Kullhammar or Bugge Wesseltoft. The resulting music is fresh, connected to the tradition but going very far, and always surprising. A gratifying achievement in any part of the world."-Clean Feed
