Huge thanks to Pedro Costa (a busy man!) who took loads of time (and made me coffee!) to chat about his enterprise – the label Clean Feed Records, a label dedicated mostly to creative, contemporary jazz music, a label that Pedro started in Lisbon in 2001.
In his cosy office in Parede (very close to SMUP, indeed) we spoke about his sense of the Portuguese improvised music scene and its development over the last few years as well as his newer label, called Shhpuma, which according to the label’s vision focuses “mainly on the Portuguese creative music scene, but [is] open to releasing vibrant and vital music by committed artists from all over the globe”.
Thanks to Clean Feed and Pedro for taking the time to chat !
