One of the best jazz Albuns of 2016 for Phil Barnes @All About Jazz

In its way the wonderful Portuguese jazz release from the Miguel Angelo Quartet A Vida de X also looked to augment the music with a striking, stylish, limited edition that showcased a commissioned illustration for each track. It was an album that gradually built the interest over a few weeks of summer listening, until I found myself looking forward to listening to it without even thinking.

See the complete list here.



Elected by Jazz.pt magazine as one of the best national jazz records in 2016

The magazine Jazz.pt considered A VIDA DE X as one of the best Portuguese Jazz records in 2016.

**** «This is an album that beguiles gradually rather than being an instant infatuation. It is like the friend you feel comfortable with, who is unobtrusive yet steadfast, and whose worth is proven over time. Those are the people to keep close, and this is an album to value—great stuff.» @ AllAboutJazz by Phil Barnes.

Great review by Phil Barnes at AllAboutJazz. Well done, great writing, great view of A VIDA DE X.
