Alexandre Frazão 'Quintessência'

Jazzemmonserrate 240928 1900 Alexandre Frazao©Carolina Nogueira Martins


Park of Monserrate


28 September 2024


7 pm



Alexandre Frazão, possibly one of the most prolific drummers in Portuguese jazz, is finally making his solo debut. It would have been easy for him to call upon a galaxy of star names in order to achieve guaranteed popularity. However, Frazão has decided to take a risk, surrounding himself with young musicians with a view to sowing seeds and thereby ensuring that Portuguese jazz will be in good hands in the future. Sharing the limelight, or even leaving it to others, has never been a problem for the drummer, and is something that results from his intrinsic generosity. Alexandre Frazão drew on that characteristic motivation of his to spark a dynamism and energy that drove the experimentation and creation needed to collectively produce ‘Quintessência.’
