At their second opus, one of the most surprising projects emerging these last years from the very dynamic and rich cauldron of Portuguese jazz are capable to go very far beyond what they showed us before.
Embracing a kind of cinematic jazz vaguely influenced by John Zorn’s compositional work for the big and the little screens, the band Slow is Possible is simultaneously accessible, due to the sugestibility of the melodic work and the directness of the rhythmic propulsion, and experimental, presenting a multitude of progressive resources coming from the most disparate of sources: classical contemporay music, post-rock, alternative metal, intelligent pop, free improvisation and more.
Self-defined as a chamber band for the new century, this collective of young musicians living in the interior of Portugal is much more than that: it’s a blow of fresh air, a box of secrets to discover, a slap in the face of conformism. A good part of the enchantment provoked by “Moonwatchers” comes from the refined compositions by all the six members, but the instrumental work is no less precious.
