music The Humanization Quartet (from Portugal & Dallas)
9:00PM - - - Price: $7
Named as 2008's 'Portuguese Jazz Record of the Year' by leading Portuguese jazz magazine, Jazz.PT. The Humanization 4tet is led by Lisbon guitarist Luis Lopes & features tenor saxophonist Rodrigo Amado, as well as Dallas, TX brothers, Aaron Gonzalez on bass and Stefan Gonzalez on drums.
"A blindfold test might place this music somewhere inside today's Chicago sound. Lopes' writing and his quartet could almost be mistaken for a Jeff Parker-meets-Ken Vandermark, as the tenor saxophone/guitar interaction of Rodrigo Amado and Lopes orients you into the free/composed styles heard in the windy city of jazz. The opening "Cristadingo" verifies this with a muscular workout, Amado blowing heavy notes over Lopes' sinewy playing. The saxophonist has been gaining quite a reputation for his work in the Lisbon Improvisation Players and with players like Ken Filiano, Steve Swell, Joe Giardullo and Paal Nilssen-Love."
