I THINK I´M GOING TO EAT DESSERT
Miguel Ângelo Solo

Out 5 November

Release Concert @ Solilóquios, Porto, 21H30


Creative Sources Records

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.

PRESS | REVIEWS


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.
