Mit ihrem 2008 erschienenen Debut-Album „Knee-Deep in the North Sea“ waren sie
schon grad mal für den renommierten Mercury-Preis nominiert - ihre Konkurrenz in
diesem Jahr: Adele, The Last Shadow Puppet, Laura Marling und Radiohead.
Gewonnen haben dann übrigens Elbow aus Manchester, aber das wiederum ist eine
anderen Geschichte.

Portico Quartett schaffen ihre eigene Note eines cinematisch-minimalistischen
Jazztronica , welcher stark von Elementen aus Elektronik und Ambient-Musik
geprägt ist. Schlagzeug, Saxophon, Klavier, Synthesizer, Kontrabass viel Elektronik
und ein Hang - die Instrumente der Wahl.

Das neuste Album „Memory Stream“ erschien auf Gondwana Records, Manchesters
innovativen Label für alles, was den State of Jazz 2020 ausmacht (<3 Gondwana
Records).

"If it was possible to directly sublimate lucid dreams into sound, it isn't
hard to imagine the results coming out somewhat like this. Music is made
to simulate that kind of loose natural flow of thoughts often enough, but
it's more rare for it to capture the experience as directly and vividly as
Portico Quartet do on their sixth full-length." -All About Jazz

été nommés pour le prestigieux Mercury Award - leur concurrence cette année-là : Adele,
The Last Shadow Puppet, Laura Marling et Radiohead. Le vainqueur était Elbow, de
Manchester, mais ça c'est une tout autre histoire.

Portico Quartet crée ses propres notes d'un jazztronica minimaliste et cinématographique,
fortement influencé par des éléments de musique électronique et ambiante.
Batterie, saxophone, piano, synthétiseur, contrebasse, beaucoup d'électronique et
un hang - des instruments de choix.

Le dernier album "Memory Stream" est sorti sur Gondwana Records, le label
novateur de Manchester pour tout ce qui constitue l'État du jazz 2020 (<3 Gondwana
