Tiago Lageira was 15 when he moved to the Netherlands from Portugal. His cradle was in Sines, also the birthplace of the famous Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama.

“That is now 14 years ago. I actually started playing guitar out of boredom. I didn’t speak the language, knew no one and had nothing to do. A friend of my mother gave me a guitar and I was immediately obsessed with it. A year later I applied to music school.”

Eventually he found his way in the local jazz scenes and studied at the Tilburg Conservatory. After graduation, Tiago tested himself by participating in some of the biggest music competitions in Europe today. He was one of the finalists at the Bucharest International Jazz Competition 2020 and he won the UK Jazz Guitar Competition in 2020. Also he performed at the North Sea Jazz Festival.

Throughout, Tiago found inspiration with John Coltrane, Pat Martino, George Benson, João Bosco, Elis Regina and Pedro Jóia. Obviously Portuguese and Brazilian influences, like Fado and Samba, characterize his way of playing.

‘Maré Noturna’ means ‘nocturnal tide’. “When you are on the beach in the evening, you experience a completely different image and context of sea and light than during the day. I sort of like that darkness. The contrast is deeper.”

In addition to his own compositions, the album also contains works by Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker/Dizzy Gillespie and Baden Powell.
Expect music full of big grooves, great songs, spontaneous improvisations and deep sensitivity as its core elements.
