The Nonet is an ensemble Miguel uses to explore various compositional techniques with specific focus on texture, non-tonal melodic structures, polyrhythms, and the relationships between them all. Influences include Steve Coleman, Steve Lehman, Louis Andriessen, Gerard Grisey, Thelonious Monk, Stravinsky, and many others. The band features many of London’s leading jazz musicians who bring their own personalities to the sound through their unique improvisations.
‘Skilled, consistently interesting & colourful compositions & arrangements are combined with exceptional playing, both individually & collectively, to produce music that both fascinates and excites’ (Ian Mann, thejazzmann.com)
‘Full of texture and depth… The tension between different instruments and registers builds the excitement, released by the excellent solos throughout’ (Patrick Hadfield, London Jazz News).
‘His music is daring and expressive…an album of vibrant, exciting pieces’ (hifinews.co.uk)
