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).

«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

«...uma música que é realmente lúdica, com os jogos de encaixe e desencaixe a traduzirem-se em belíssimos resultados que nos deixam de ouvidos escancarados a todas as possibilidades enunciadas. Importante, também, ver e ouvir isto a acontecer num palco..» By Rui Miguel Abreu on Rima e Batidas

«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
