Xosé Miguélez 4tet

"Contradictio" (Origin Records, 2022) is the second album by Galician musician Xosé Miguélez as a leader for Seattle-based Origin Records. Released in March 2022 as a quartet, it features Jean-Michel Pilc, an internationally renowned French-American pianist, alongside him and two of the most important jazz musicians in Portugal: Marcos Cavaleiro on drums and Carlos Barretto on double bass.

With a deep inspiration in traditional Galician music, "Contradictio" is an album of first takes that aims to transfer both the live-performance feeling and communication between the band’s musicians to the listener. The repertoire combines original compositions with revisited American songbook standards. The album was recorded in November 2021 at CARA-OJM in Matosinhos (Portugal), and mixed by José Trincado and Nuno Couto at Savik Sound (Ponte Caldelas).

"This album is a revelation, top musicians playing together and creating variations on standards and original compositions in a way that conveys beyond the music." —Sammy Stein (Jazz Journalists Association), Jazzviews

"Saxophonist Xose Miguélez establishes himself on the international jazz scene. After the success of 'Ontology', 'Contradictio' shows his talent mixing bob with ethnic music." —Hrayr Attarian, Allaboutjazz

"‘Contradictio’ is going to be on the Best of the Year lists." —Carlos Crespo, 'Fugas', La Voz de Galicia
