A man of several projects, guitarist André Fernandes gave birth to Kinetic with two purposes: to play the music of some composer friends he admires (David Binney, Ohad Talmor, Akiko Pavolka, Sara Serpa, Perico Sambeat and Xan Campos), in a band shared with some of them (saxophonist Sambeat and pianist Campos, both from Spain, are involved). In consequence, this may be the most transnational of all Portuguese combos, also including the Brazilien bassist Frederico Heliodoro. Besides Fernandes himself, only the drummer, João Pereira, is originally from Portugal. The music inside has a strong focus: to embrace the tradition in order to innovate it and to bring it to other developments. Here and there with other ingredients, either coming from rock or showing the European perspective of that genre, jazz, that we can’t no longer define as “American classical music. (Label PR)
