EN.

Few jazz fans know Gileno Santana, a young talented Brazilian trumpeter born on May 5, 1987 in Salvador de Bahia and settled in Portugal from 2005. Someone, however, already appreciated him in poLO, a quartet led by Andrea Lombardini and Paolo Porta («Pleasures», Auand Records). In 2003 Santana moved to Fortaleza, deciding, after just two years, to continue his musical studies in Portugal, where he studied with João Moreira and graduated from the Conservatory of Lisbon. He became first trumpet in Matosinhos Jazz Orchestra, thanks to which he had the opportunity to work with Kurt Rosenwinkel and Maria Schneider, and to record with Maria Joao. At the end of 2011 he released his first album as a leader, «Inicio», in quartet, with Hamilton De Holanda as a guest. Santana now lives in Porto, where he also teaches. Three years after the debut album, the time has come for him to finally reap the benefits of his work, and this «Metamorphosis», recorded in 2012 but resumed, edited, mixed and mastered in March 2014, will not go unnoticed. In what looks like a kind of long one suite, there is room for improvisation, sometimes very free, for a clever use of electronics, for references to the last Miles Davis (especially Shadow of power and I’m not Miles–Tarabbia), but also for a freshness and spontaneity that can overshadow even his praised virtuosity. A precious contribution to the success of this work is given by, besides the skillful guitar of Miguel Moreira, the devotees Joaquim Rodrigues, José Carlos Barbosa & Mario Costa, also present in «Inicio», but here willingly converted to the new electric sound of the leader.

Pochi appassionati conoscono Gileno Santana, giovane talentuoso trombettista brasiliano nato il 5 maggio 1988 a Salvador da Bahia e dal 2005 stabilitosi in Portogallo. Qualcuno l’ha però già apprezzato all’interno di poLO, quartetto guidato da Andrea Lombardini e Paolo Porta («Pleasures», Auand Records). Dal 2003 Santana si è trasferito a Fortaleza, decidendo, dopo appena due anni, di proseguire i suoi studi musicali in Portogallo, dove ha studiato con João Moreira, diplomandosi al Conservatorio di Lisbona. E’ diventato prima tromba della Matosinhos Jazz Orchestra, grazie a cui ha avuto occasione di lavorare con Kurt Rosenwinkel e Maria Schneider, e di incidere con Maria Joao. Alla fine del 2011 ha pubblicato il suo disco album da leader, «Inicio», in quartetto, con ospite Hamilton De Holanda. Santana vive oggi a Porto, dove anche insegna. A tre anni dall’album del debutto, sembra sia finalmente giunto il tempo per lui di raccogliere i frutti di quanto seminato, e questo «Metamorphosis», registrato nel 2012 ma ripreso, editato, mixato e masterizzato nel marzo 2014, non passerà certamente inosservato. In quella che si presenta come una sorta di unica lunga suite, trovano spazio l’improvvisazione, a tratti molto libera, un sapiente uso dell’elettronica, richiami all’ultimo Miles Davis (Shadow of power e I’m not Miles–Tarabbia su tutti), ma soprattutto una freschezza ed una spontaneità capaci di mettere in secondo piano il suo pur celebrato virtuosismo. Danno un prezioso contributo alla riuscita del lavoro, oltre che la sapiente chitarra di Miguel Moreira, i fedelissimi Joaquim Rodrigues, Josè Carlos Barbosa e Mario Costa, presenti anche in «Inicio», ma qui riconvertiti di buon grado al nuovo sound elettrico del leader.
