Artist Biographies:

"Portuguese saxophonist (alto, C melody, baritone, and tenor) Rodrigo Amado specializes in free-form, composition-in-the-moment jazz, and his various projects and trios have given him an international following. Born in Lisbon in 1964, Amado began studying the sax at the age of 17, briefly at the Hot Club Music School of Lisbon and with mentors Carlos Martins, Pedro Madaleno, and Jorge Reis, among other leading Portuguese jazz artists. With diverse musical interests, he explored how improvisation is handled in other genres, although his work with his various ensembles like the Lisbon Improvisation Players and the Motion Trio (with Miguel Mira and Gabriel Ferrandini) falls clearly under the umbrella of 21st century jazz, and he has been an in-demand studio player on numerous recorded projects. He started his own label, Clean Feed, in 2001, with brothers Pedro and Carlos Costa, before leaving the imprint in 2005 to start a second label, European Echoes. Also an accomplished professional photographer, Amado continues to be a bright light on the Portuguese and international improvisational jazz scene."

"Ken Filiano performs throughout the world, playing and recording with leading artists in jazz, spontaneous improvisation, classical, world/ethnic, and interdisciplinary performance, fusing the rich traditions of the double bass with his own seemingly limitless inventiveness. Ken's solo bass CD, subvenire (NineWinds), received widespread critical praise. For this and numerous other recordings, Ken has been called a creative virtuoso, a master of technique ... a paradigm of that type of artist... who can play anything in any context and make it work, simply because he puts the music first and leaves peripheral considerations behind.

Ken composes for his quartet with Michael Attias, Tony Malaby, and Michael T.A. Thomspon; a collective with Attias and Tomas Ulrich; and for his decades-long collaborations with Steve Adams and Vinny Golia. His prolific output also includes performances and/or recordings with artists including Bonnie Barnett, Rob Blakeslee, Bobby Bradford, Taylor Ho Bynum, Roy Campbell, John Carter, Nels Cline, Alex Cline, Connie Crothers, Mark Dresser, Ted Dunbar, Marty Ehrlich, Giora Feidman, Bob Feldman, Eddie Gale, Georgian Chamber Orchestra, Dennis Gonzalez, Lou Grassi, Phil Haynes, Fred Hess, Jason Hwang, Joseph Jarman, Sheila Jordan (with the Aardvark Orchestra), Raul Juarena, Joe Labarbera, Joelle Leandre, Frank London, Manhattan Chamber Orchestra, Tina Marsh, Warne Marsh, Dom Minasi, Hafez Modirzadeh, Butch Morris, Barre Phillips, Don Preston, Herb Robertson, Bob Rodriguez, Roswell Rudd, ROVA Saxophone Quartet, Ursel Schlicht, Paul Smoker, Chris Sullivan, Peeter Uuskyla, Fay Victor, Biggi Vinkeloe, Kenny Wessel, Andrea Wolper, Pablo Ziegler. With Tomas Ulrich, Elliott Sharp, and Carlos Zingaro, he is a member of T.E.C.K. String Quartet.

Ken has been a guest lecturer, performer, and workshop leader at institutions in the United States and Europe. He earned a MM from Rutgers University and is currently on faculty at Mansfield University."- All About Jazz

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"I had asked Rodrigo to let me be present at the recordings, but unfortunately I arrived late. As I entered the studio I was immediately amazed by the sheer intensity of the music. The band had already taken off in a wild fury that streamed out of the studio monitors. It seemed like the energy generated by the music might erupt from the recording booth at any moment and make control all but possible. That was the kind of suspense that permeated the air during the following hours. It exposed the conviction with which all four men played their individual instruments, in that late evening session. They coherently structured a communal language where mutual respect and space became one of their important resources.

It should not go without saying that all of these sounds where totally improvised. Therefore we are hearing, first hand, how these men think, feel and live their music. Ultimately we are hearing them create, right there and then! Following them through their discourse can become an exhilarating thrill intensified with each inflection of sound or unexpected shift of rhythm. For those not acquainted with free improvisation, the sheer sound of this band should be enough for them to want to go back and listen once again. On the other hand, the experienced listener will discover an outstanding transatlantic brotherhood where bridges are unneeded since there is no distance to be spanned".

This is how writer Rui Horta Santos refers to his experience in the Studio with the band. Rodrigo Amado leads his project Lisbon Improvisation Players for almost seven years. He played with musicians like Steve Swell, Ken Filiano, Steve Adams, Paul Dunmall, Joe Giardullo, Alex Cline, Bobby Bradford, Vinny Golia, Dominic Duval, Kent Kessler, Paal Nilssen-Love, Chris Jonas, Lou Grassi, Mark Whitecage, Peter Epstein, Carlos Zíngaro, Greg Moore, Phill Niblock, Rafael Toral, or Carlos Barretto. Among his latest projects are the trio recording "The Space Between" (Clean Feed) with Carlos Zingaro and Ken Filiano, a trio recording with bassist Kent Kessler and drummer Paal Nilssen-Love, and a recently recorded LIP quartet date featuring Dennis Gonzalez on Trumpet, Pedro Gonçalves on Bass and Bruno Pedroso on Drums."-Clean Feed Records
