In addition, the attribute that draws more attention in this album is the highly comprehensive character in terms of idiomatic - or musical styles - that were used in all its tracks! Of course the "language" that unites all these diverse influences is free jazz, as you may listen in tracks 3/8/9/10, however, there is sound processing, drones, ambient music, and much more just acting as a "differentiated packaging" in tracks 1/2/4/5/11. As if this weren't enough, we can still perceive some sonorities that remit us to a past that, in some way, was constructed by our collective unconscious to answer the question about how would be the sound of our primitive music... A curious phenomenon that happens while you are listening to tracks 6 and 7.
All these characteristics hide another interesting fact: “Quinta do Lobo” is a conceptual work, but it wasn't born this way. When André was in charge of giving the songs' titles, he noticed a cohesion between them and decided to "make a link" with the Lupa capitolina's image from the album cover. He selected the most important cities of Ancient Rome, as a kind of "main concept", and named each track with a title in portuguese that was thought the most appropriate in relation to them. So, if music is made by a set of factors that go beyond itself, I have no doubt that this work is a big and welcome surprise for free jazz enthusiasts!!! If you consider yourself a fan of this style, let yourself be surprised by Quinta do Lobo!!! If you have a label, and are looking for something cool to release on physical media, this is an awesome choice for that!!!
