"It will not have been included on purpose, but a phrase that Manuel Guimaraes says at the beginning of this solo piano record very well defines the music that is going to be proposed. He asks when the recording is already in progress, and it seems to him to hear something in the studio: "There's a fly in there." For the plays that follow seem to follow the irregular flight of an insect - the plots take several directions, changing Of time, of materials and of foci, in an assumedly trans-idiomatic perspective. This pianist, guitarist and choir conductor who has developed his activity in various fields, from pop-rock to improvised music (he is, incidentally, one of the few Portuguese musicians who have done a master's degree on the subject of improvisation), passing through the classical, By jazz and by the Portuguese popular song, integrates in its pianismo elements of all these origins, with emphasis to the scholarly and jazzy references. The curious thing about this "Flow Me" isthe fact that Guimaraes does not stop at the free-improvisation-type standard languages, which speaks well of his attitude of misalignment and defiance of the stereotype. Through an expressive lyricism without complexes, a special characteristic of Guimaraes is also established: it improvises with a compositional understanding, structuring, creating forms, erecting buildings, even though these are sand castles that he himself undoes once completed, or even before To other situations as constructed as they are ephemeral. A long time ago we expected a record that represented the art of this intriguing musician. Hey finally."-Rui Eduardo Paes, Jazz.pt (translated by Google Translate)
