Resende, Julio: You Taste Like A Song (Clean Feed)
Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    

"In his third appearance in the Clean Feed catalogue, Portuguese pianist and composer Júlio Resende confirms his love for the song format - You Taste Like a Song is a compromise between poetry and guts, combining beatiful, lyrical melodies, groovy rhythms and red hot improvisations.

After Da Alma and Assim Falava Jazzatustra there's no more doubts about the consistency, and the exquisite personality, of his musical world, represented here not only by Júlio's compositions, but also by his own versions of two very special songs, "Airbag", a pearl created by the pop-rock band Radiohead, and Thelonious Monk's "Straight No Chaser", considered today a noble jazz standard. These choices are of symbolic importance, considering the musician's commitment to bring back that music idiom we call jazz to the centre of popular music. In doing so, proposing us a project which is, simultaneously, accessible and inteligent, agreable and defying.

With something new to offer: this time, Júlio Resende fronts his trio, with the phenomenal Norwegian contrabassist Ole Morten Vagan and portuguese wonder drummer Joel Silva. Bruno Pedroso (drums on 3), and João Custódio (double bass on 8) also contribute to the record. And yes, you can expect to find here adapted extensions of some of the aspects introduced by Bill Evans with Scott LaFaro and Paul Motian, and by Keith Jarrett with Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette but Resende also contribute with his outrageous melodic sense as part of the expansion of the piano trio language."-Clean Feed
