"Contradictio feeds from tradition – evoking Galicia, Paris, New York - although it does not stop to search for limits but tries to reach for infinity." - Javier Fraiz, Faro de Vigo. 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.
