After released “BRANCO", the group´s debut album, in 2013, and the album “A VIDA DE X”, in 2016, Quarteto, led by bassist and composer Miguel Ângelo, now promotes the third work of the quartet - “DANÇA DOS DESASTRADOS”.

Based on possible Traditional Dances, real or imagined, this is the proposal of the music group to listen, feel and dance, even for the most “clumsy”.

About the digital project

The arts complement each other, intersect, run over each other and in conjunction allow for new achievements and realities. For this reason, the double bassist and composer, who is also a computer programmer, allied himself with the graphic artist Maria Mónica, author of the album´s cover and, from the music and cover of the album, created a new digital “autonomous” world, game, landscape and / or virtual reality so that music, design and technology enhance the sensory experience of the listener / interlocutor (a).

«The years of waiting ended with the remarkable “Serpente”, in quartet, where he appears accompanied by superlative musicians, leaders of their own projects... with an always exquisite rhythm section - including a beautiful solo by Miguel Ângelo... and one more remarkable contribution from a state-of-grace bass player.» by António Branco on Jazz.pt

«Mazam creates a true synergistic effect. Indeed, the whole is much greater than the sum of the individual parts...» by Mark Corroto on All About Jazz

«These creative bursts—eccentric vignettes of love affairs between dissonance and melody—have an idiosyncratic quality that any ensemble would love to match.» by Dave Sumner on The Best Jazz on Bandcamp: April 2022

«It’s difficult not to approach the second release from the Portuguese group Mazam...both recordings have the feel of a band that has devoted time to developing as a unit and embarking on “ an adventure through the lands of creative and improvised music .” In any case, the set offered here makes clear why these musicians are in such demand.» By Jim Marks on Freejazzblog.org
