About the album

From the Galicia region of Spain, saxophonist Xose Miguélez celebrated the traditional melodies of his family, viewed through a modern jazz lens, for the 2019 release Ontology. On Contradictio, Miguélez features the virtuosic French pianist Jean-Michel Pilc, and the music they've been developing together over the last several years with the Portugal-based rhythm team of bassist Carlos Barretto and drummer Marcos Cavaleiro. Together, they deliver prominently contemporary timbres within an organic classic jazz setting. Through a mixture of standards, originals by Miguélez, and a Pilc original dedicated to Galicia, the music unfolds with a spontaneity and life that inspires feelings of a live music experience.
Der aus der spanischen Region Galicien stammende Saxophonist Xose Miguélez zelebriert auf seinem 2019 erscheinenden Album Ontology die traditionellen Melodien seiner Familie, die er durch eine moderne Jazzlinse betrachtet. Auf Contradictio arbeitet Miguélez mit dem virtuosen französischen Pianisten Jean-Michel Pilc zusammen, und die Musik, die sie in den letzten Jahren gemeinsam mit dem in Portugal ansässigen Rhythmus-Team, bestehend aus Bassist Carlos Barretto und Schlagzeuger Marcos Cavaleiro, entwickelt haben. Gemeinsam bringen sie zeitgenössische Klangfarben in ein organisches klassisches Jazz-Setting ein. Mit einer Mischung aus Standards, Eigenkompositionen von Miguélez und einem Pilc-Original, das Galicien gewidmet ist, entfaltet sich die Musik mit einer Spontaneität und Lebendigkeit, die das Gefühl eines Live-Musik-Erlebnisses weckt.
