released March 7, 2013

This recording allows Guimarães Jazz, through its partnership with the TOAP label, to fulfill its mission of documenting the festival for future generations of listeners, which is indeed essential for an event of the size and ambition of Guimarães Jazz. The seventh edition of this collaborative project between TOAP and Guimarães Jazz in 2012 brings us the work of the increasingly prestigious Matosinhos Jazz Orchestra and João Paulo Esteves da Silva, performing compositions written by this Portuguese pianist and composer. The decision to adopt a new format was based on the desire to focus on the body of work of a single iazz musician as opposed to the usual collaborative performances amongst musicians coming from different backgrounds. The Matosinhos Jazz Orchestra was selected here given the need to afford greater visibility to a Portuguese jazz orchestra with little prior recording history and as a way to give young musicians the opportunity to perform with prominent composers. This recording also allows us to rightfully recognize the artistic path of an influential musical talent such as João Paulo Esteves da Silva.
