Fiona's Comments

An inventive and fun trio. Plenty of that great Clean Feed dissonance, some well-placed electronic effects, and great interplay between the artists. Trumpeter Santos is one to watch.

About the Album

The particularly dynamic and inventive Portuguese jazz scene has a new front with the trio LAMA. The project was born in Roterdam, where the double bassist and composer Gonalo Almeida and trumpeter Susana Santos Silva were studying at the local conservatory. There, they met the Canadian drummer Greg Smith. Acting in the frontier line between the mainstream and the avant-garde, Oneiros proposes a particular jazz vision for the 21st century.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
