"Director, arranger and trumpeter, Sei Miguel considers himself a simple jazzman, which, he says, isn't always easy. Born in 1961, Paris, lived in Brazil and France until settling down in Portugal during the 1980's. Since 1986 he has been directing formations of variable geometry. Having performed in Portugal, Germany, Italy, UK and Brazil, among his many regular collaborators are not only guitarists Rafael Toral and Manuel Mota, but also extraordinaire trombone player Fala Mariam and discreet virtuoso percussionist César Burago. Miguel has also written music for theater and ballet. "
