Some of what the critics have been saying about my music:

“(…) GREAT, EXTRAORDINARILY CREATIVE, VISIONARY DRUMMER/PERCUSSIONIST
Bob Moses, 2020
“…AN UNCOMPROMISING SENSIBILITY EQUALLY COMMITTED TO AVANT-GARDE JAZZ AND CONTEMPORARY CLASSICAL MUSIC, (…) ALVES’ HYBRIDITY IS HIS CALLING CARD.”
Troy Dostert, All About Jazz, 2020
“…THE VIGOROUS SHINING WUNDERKIND OF PORTUGUESE JAZZ.”
Henning Bolte, All About Jazz, 2018
“TODAY, THE NAMES ON THE MINDS OF PORTUGUESE FANS ARE THOSE OF ACCORDIONIST JOÃO BARRADAS AND DRUMMER PEDRO MELO ALVES (THE RITE OF TRIO, OMNIAE ENSEMBLE), BOTH UNANIMOUSLY ACCLAIMED BY THE CRITICS.”
Julien Aunos, Citizen Jazz, 2018
“THE YOUNG PORTUGUESE DRUMMER (…) APPEARS AS A SOLID VOICE IN ONE OF THE MOST INTENSE SCENES OF THE MOMENT.”
Fabrício Vieira, FreeForm FreeJazz, 2017
“(…) A VISION OF TOTAL MUSIC, AS AN ACCOMPLISHED COMPOSER AND DESIGNER OF SINGULAR UNIVRESES.
Gonçalo Frota, Público, 2020
“(…) INCESSANT SEARCH FOR CREATIVE EXPRESSION (…) MR. ALVES ARRIVES AT SATISFYING DESTINATIONS BY SURPRISING, INVENTIVE AND ABSORBING MEANS.”
Raul da Gama, Jazz da Gama, 2018
“… THROUGH HIM WILL PASS THE FUTURE OF THE CREATIVE PORTUGUESE MUSIC.”
Nuno Catarino, jazz.pt, 2018
“(…) PEDRO ALVES HAS A BOLD COMPOSITION THAT SURPRISES AND CHALLENGE US. AS A COMPOSER HE DEMONSTRATES A CERTAIN KIND OF COURAGE THAT CAUSES ME GREAT ADMIRATION.”
Mário Laginha, 2017
