Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"A man of several projects, guitarist Andre Fernandes gave birth to Kinetic with two purposes: to play the music of some composer friends he admires (David Binney, Ohad Talmor, Akiko Pavolka, Sara Serpa, Perico Sambeat and Xan Campos), in a band shared with some of them (saxophonist Sambeat and pianist Campos, both from Spain, are involved).

In consequence, this may be the most transnational of all Portuguese combos, also including the Brazilien bassist Frederico Heliodoro. Besides Fernandes himself, only the drummer, Joao Pereira, is originally from Portugal. The music inside has a strong focus: to embrace the tradition in order to innovate it and to bring it to other developments. Here and there with other ingredients, either coming from rock or showing the European perspective of that genre, jazz, that we can no longer define as American classical music.-Clean Feed

"Xan Campos (Galicia, 1987) grew as a pianist and composer at conservatories in Galicia, Basque Country, Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Berlin, stages that allowed him to be in contact with the European jazz vanguard, playing at venues and festivals of a large part of the continent.

Currently, Xan Campos is one of the most active pianists in the Iberian Peninsula, both leading his own projects and as a sideman of prominent artists from the Spanish and Portuguese jazz scenes. Still in his early thirties, he has a specially extensive career, having recorded 5 albums in his own name and more than 20 as an accompanist with big names of this musical genre.

He also enjoys relevance in Latin America, where he has played at festivals in Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Ecuador and Colombia, as well as performing at several venues in New York City (USA)."
