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

“TWENTY-SIX YEAR OLD DRUMMER/PIANIST PEDRO MELO ALVES FROM PORTO IS THE VIGOROUS SHINING WUNDERKIND OF PORTUGUESE JAZZ.”
Henning Bolte, All About Jazz, 2018
“(…) WITH THIS INCESSANT SEARCH FOR CREATIVE EXPRESSION YOU CAN BE REST ASSURED THAT MR. ALVES ARRIVES AT SATISFYING DESTINATIONS BY SURPRISING, INVENTIVE AND ABSORBING MEANS.” 
Raul da Gama, Jazz da Gama, 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

Mínima

“HE IS ONE OF THE YOUNGEST TALENTS OF PORTUGUESE JAZZ AND THROUGH HIM WILL PASS THE FUTURE OF THE CREATIVE PORTUGUESE MUSIC.” 
Nuno Catarino, jazz.pt, 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
“(…) 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
