About the album

While looking through songbooks of traditional Galician music, Spanish saxophonist Xose Miguelez happened upon a recording by the ethnic musicologist Dorothé Schubart of a ballad, sung by his own Great-Aunt Amparo almost 40 years ago in Cerdedelo-Laza, a beautiful village hidden in the Galician hills. All of the compositions on "Ontology" come from a four-note motif at the beginning of that ballad. The idea came from Kansas City saxophonist Matt Otto, a friend and mentor to Xose and the producer of this recording. Though through the sounds of this dynamic, modern jazz quartet it may be difficult to discern the four-note motif, it is the very root and inspiration of this work. Listen to the end to hear Great-Aunt Amparo sing her song.
Alle Kompositionen auf "Ontology" stammen aus einem viertönigen Motiv zu Beginn dieser Ballade. Die Idee dazu kam vom Kansas City-Saxophonisten Matt Otto, einem Freund und Mentor des spanischen Saxophonisten Xose Miguelez und dem Produzenten dieser Aufnahme. Obwohl es durch die Klänge dieses dynamischen, modernen Jazzquartetts schwierig sein mag, das viertönige Motiv zu erkennen, ist es die Wurzel und Inspiration dieses Werkes. Hören Sie das Ende, um Großtante Amparo ihr Lied singen zu hören.
