With regard to groups with a large number of members, Coreto is certainly one ensemble that over the years has been an indispensable element in the Portuguese Jazz scene. The project is part of the heritage of jazz orchestralism, turning more to the bop period than that of this creative source, that of swing, but in combination with formulas from contemporary classical composition and with aspects taken from freely improvised music, which is not exactly free jazz.
The last album published by this formation, “Analog”, which uses compositions by João Pedro Brandão, also adds a rhythm derived from electronic dance music and, in particular, drum 'n' bass. The music in this ensemble is essentially collective and sustained with unison, counterpoint, polymelodic and polyrhythmic games and complex harmonic and timbral constructions. The album in question even places the Sound factor in the foreground, using Morse code, short waves and electrical interference as contrasts in an approach that is both acoustic and human, thereby giving it even greater prominence.
