Biography

Releasing their fourth cd, Brazilian contemporary jazz group Sinequanon, with Lupa Santiago (guitar), Vitor Alcatara (saxophones), Guto Brambilla (acoustic bass) and Carlos Ezequiel (drums), explores collective improvisation and modern composition with great emphasis on the typical nuances of an acoustic setting. The group's history goes back to 1997, when Lupa and Carlos started a partnership in Boston, USA. They performed extensively in the american East Coast scene in formats ranging from trios to septets, and in 2000 recorded the first album, "images", released in Brazil in 2001 and indicated to the Latin Grammy 2002 as "Best Latin Jazz Album". As the duo returns to Brazil, a new quartet was put together with Vitor and Guto, and the group began to perform by the name Sinequanon. They recorded "sinequanon" in 2003, and so far have been actively performing all over Brazil, with appearances in cities like São Paulo, Brasilia, Florianopolis, Joinville, Salvador, Aracaju, Maceió, to name a few. In 2005 the group records "Telescópio", and their fourth cd (recorded in October 2007) will be out in the Brazilian market early 2008, entitled "Horizonte Artificial". The group's musical references extend from post-bop and avant garde jazz to contemporary Brazilian music and even twentieth century classical music.
