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).

«Dança is a fine example of the benefits of sympathetic musicians playing together over an extended period of time. The members of the quartet clearly appreciate each other and know how to bring Ângelo’s compositions alive. Rather than fiery solos, the group creates and resolves subtle resonances and tensions within the tunes in ways that reward repeated listening. » by Jim Marks @ freejazzblog.org

Dança dos Desastrados on «The Best Jazz on Bandcamp - June 2021» - «On Dança dos Desastrados, every note, every beat has a melodic perspective in mind. This is not a new thing for Miguel Ângelo. The bassist has a talent for establishing epic dialogues on the strength of his flowing melodic statements.» @ Bandcamp by Dave Sumner

«Obviously the group exhibits a perfect collective understanding...This understanding of the four musicians, honed in the studio for nearly a decade and shown live on several occasions, allows this to be a vivid album of poetic dancing fantasies.» @ Notas Azuis on Rimasebatidas.pt by Rui Miguel Abreu
