"About Miguel Ângelo

He started his musical activity with the "Tuna Musical de Fi?es", where he attended lessons in music education, guitar and double-bass. He initiated a project in the area of rock, called "Curtes Baldei-me", in which he played bass guitar. He continued his musical studies at Escola de Jazz do Porto, learning electric bass with the Professor Alberto Jorge. Although rock music had been his field of artistic interest during some time, it was undoubtedly the Jazz music that conquered all of his attention. He resumed his bass studies under the guidance of the bassist Alberto Jorge, and had combo lessons with pianist Paulo Gomes, at Escola de Jazz do Porto. Later, he continued to study with the bassist Pedro Barreiros, and afterward he received support from the bassist António Augusto Aguiar. He attended the Official Music Course with the Professor Alenxander Worf up to the 5th degree. Some years after completing his degree in Computer Science / Applied Mathematics at Universidade Portucalense, he returned to higher education to study Double-Bass.

In 2008, he completed his Degree in Double Bass / Jazz at Escola Superior de Música e Artes do Espetáculo, where he had the opportunity to work with António Augusto Aguiar, Damien Cabaud, Carlos Bica, Zé Eduardo, Michael Lauren, Nuno Ferreira, Carlos Azevedo, Pedro Guedes, Telmo Marques, among many others.

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"I think I'm going to eat dessert refers to that moment after the main course, in which we have to decide whether to eat that additional dish which, although it is dispensable in nutritional terms, it is justified only by the pleasure of satisfying our need for sugar or additional taste sensations. This album is a bit of this, they are mostly moments of pure improvisation, unrepeatable, which, for me, make musical and emotional sense."-Miguel Ângelo

"We can all agree that music is perceived and enjoyed through the sensory faculty known as hearing. Certainly, but a musical performance is enhanced when an additional sense is summoned, like the visual when attending a production. In the case of this solo performance by bassist Miguel Ângelo, that additional sense is touch. With I Think I'm Going To Eat Dessert, sound is just one element that is shared equally with the sensation of touch.

Ângelo can be heard in the octet Ensemble Super Moderne, Bruno Macedo Quartet, Pedro Neves Trio, the quartet MAP, and leading his own quartet, which released A Vida de X (Porto Jazz, 2015) and Branco (Porto Jazz, 2013). I'd wager a guess that the title I Think I'm Going To Eat Dessert refers to a listener's anticipation of Ângelo's solo during an ensemble performance, calling it dessert. Whereas, by presenting a solo recording we get dessert, not at the end of the meal, but as the main course.

The tactile experience of this recording includes the resonant sounds Ângelo's double bass generates in the listener's chest. There is a synergy between the bassist's fingers and the sympathetic response it evokes. The disc opens with "I Have A Dream," a brooding composition in which Ângelo leaves sufficient space between notes, always returning to his theme. He has the ability to apply heavy bottom notes on "Never And Never Again" and surf the upper register, as in "Meditation #1," with equal discipline. With any double bass performance pulse is paramount. Ângelo never neglects tempo, like the thudding "Aliens Exists!" or the classically inspired "Farewell Song." He applies some well crafted multi-tracking with "Politics Talk" and "Children's Playground," the latter piece a persistent sculpture of sound that, like all the tracks, makes a connection through the proximity of contact."-Mark Corroto, All About Jazz
