RED trio & Mattias Stahl: North And Red Stream (NoBusiness)

Label: NoBusiness    
Released in: Lithuania    


RED trio is a group that presents a multiplicity of approaches to music playing and composition in real time by improvisation.

Formed by three musicians from the new improvised music Lisbon scene from an idea by Hernâni Faustino, RED trio features Rodrigo Pinheiro at the piano, Hernani Faustino at the doublebass and Gabriel Ferrandini at the drums. RED Trio explores one of the most prolific jazz formations: piano/doublebass/drums. The trio's music is characterized for being fast, energic, highly focused, dynamic and sometimes nervous and violent. Most of RED trio influences are based on jazz and especially on improvised music. A three part counterpoint oscillating between the most subtle sound to a sonic burst full of violence and intensity.



Rodrigo Pinheiro Born in 1973 at Covilhã, a small town at the center of Portugal. Started learning music at the age of five. At the age of eighteen moved to Lisboa and at the same time began to get increasingly involved with the free improvisation scene at Portugal. Since then he had the opportunity to work with musicians like Américo Rodrigues, José Oliveira, Nuno Rebelo, Rodrigo Amado, Luis Desirat, Bruno Parrinha, Ernesto Rodrigues, Hiroshi Kobayashi, Cristin Wilboltz, Patrick Brennan, Nathan Fuhr, Blaise Siwula and lots of other musicians from Portugal and abroad. Worked and studied with musicians like Carlos Zíngaro, Peter Kowald, Gunther Muller and with John Zorn who directed the "Cobra Portuguese Ensemble" where he played the piano. More recently started RED trio with Hernani Faustino and Gabriel Ferrandini and has collaborated with Nobuyasu Furuya, John Butcher and Nate Wooley.

Hernâni Faustino is a self-taught musician. Start playing electric bass in 1979 in several rock bands. With K4 Quadrado Azul (wins the national contest from Instituto Português da Juventude/New Culture Values in 1988). Work with theatre company, creating live music for the play "El - Levando-os aos Ombros em Passo de Marcha Sincopada ao Quarto Tempo" (Honor Mention from the award Maria Helena Perdigão, ACARTE, Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, 1992). Since 1990 became concentrated in double bass, and began working in groups that improvised with free jazz framework. As improviser, he work in numerous meetings and collaborations: Carlos Zíngaro, Rafael Toral, Rodrigo Amado, Nuno Rebelo, Ernesto Rodrigues, Vitor Rua, Anisotropus, Jon Irabagon, Neil Davidson, Heddy Boubaker, Katsura Yamauchi, Mats Gustafsson, Chris Corsano, Nobuyasu Furuya, Nikolaus Gerszewski, Robert Mazurek, Blaise Siwula, Virginia Genta, Daniel Carter, Federico Ughi, Floros Floridis, Matt Bauder, Dennis González, Aaron González and many others.

Gabriel Ferrandini is the image of the universal music he plays. Born in Monterey, California, Gabriel Ferrandini (23 years old) is the son of a Portuguese father born in Mozambique but relocated to Brasil with only 2 years of age, and of a Brasilian mother with Italian ascendecy migrated to the United States in her teenage years. This "citizen of the world" lives in Portugal since he was 9 years old, and it was in this European country where, ironically, he discovered jazz and the practice of improvisation. This fact is explained by the richness of the jazz and improvised Portuguese music scene, with already big repercussions in the world - as we verify knowing that a Portuguese discographic company, Clean Feed, was chosen by the online journal All About Jazz as Label of the Year in 2008. This is the context where the young musician is firming is name as one of the most important drummers around. With Rodrigo Amado's Motion Trio, Red Trio, Nobuyasu Furuya Trio, and the electro-acoustic / noise band Flu, or playing in ad-hoc formations with Rob Mazurek, Alberto Pinton, Alfred "23" Harth, Raymond Strid, and David Stackenas, among others, is presence is strongly felt. Ferrandini has a very personal view of the work with a pair of sticks, somewhere between Paul Lytton and Paal Nilssen-Love, and that makes all the difference. As the magazine jazz.pt wrote, "the future waits for him".

Mattias Stahl is born 1971 in Oskarshamn, Sweden and lives in Stockholm. Have the latest 15 years performed at stages around Sweden and elsewhere, focusing on jazz and improvised music. Released two album of his own with his former quartet Ståhls blå ("Ståhls blå" 2001 and "Schlachtplatte" 2004), which achieved great attention from reviewers all over the world. He also composed all the music for this group.

Also: Cecilia Persson Quintet, Martin Küchens group Angles, IPA with Magnus Broo/Atle Nymo/Håkon Mjåseth Johansen/Ingebrigt Håker Flaten, Daniel Buner Formos Formo Tre&Metall and different projects with Trondheim Jazzorkester.

He recieved the Swedish Radio Award 2002 as newcomer of the year for his album "Ståhls blå".



"After establishing his name during the Eighties as an electric bass guitarist in alternative rock bands, like the now legendary K4 Quadrado Azul, Hernani Faustino turned to avant-jazz and free improvised music and chose the double bass as his self-taught instrument. Two decades later of multiple interactions with Portuguese and international musicians, he's now considered one of the most intense and solid bassists in the Portuguese scene. The association he maintains with drummer Gabriel Ferrandini (RED trio, Nobuyasu Furuya Trio & Quintet, Rodrigo Amado Wire Quartet) has been pointed as a dynamic and powerful rhythm section. His visceral playing is well showed by the contortions of his face during a performance: he goes to the limits of pleasure and pain.

Music is his life: besides being a musician, he was one of the members of the label Clean Feed, considered one of the five more important on the planet in what regards jazz, and the Trem Azul Jazz Store, located in Lisbon. He also composed for theatre, produced radio programs, and wrote about music in a couple of magazines. A good part of his activity in photography is also music oriented: Faustino is one of the most accomplished stage photographers around. This says all about his passion and commitment.

Hernani Faustino's numerous meetings and collaborations with other improvisors is astonishing: John Butcher, Lotte Anker, Nate Wooley, Carlos "Zíngaro", Agustí Fernández, Sei Miguel, Rafael Toral, Jason Stein, Nuno Rebelo, Rodrigo Pinheiro, Gabriel Ferrandini, Pedro Sousa, Rodrigo Amado, Albert Cirera, Manuel Mota, Luís Lopes, Jon Irabagon, Taylor Ho Bynum, Gerard Lebik, Piotr Damasiewicz, Harris Eisenstadt, Neil Davidson, Heddy Boubaker, Gerard Lebik, Elliott Levin, Katsura Yamauchi, Mats Gustafsson, Chris Corsano, Nikolaus Gerszewski, Rob Mazurek, Reinhold Friedl, Ernesto Rodrigues, José Oliveira, Helena Espvall, Nuno Torres, Ricardo Jacinto, Blaise Siwula, Virginia Genta, Elliott Levin, Daniel Carter, Federico Ughi, Floros Floridis, Matt Bauder, Dennis González, Vítor Rua, and many more, covering a wide range from free bop to extreme experimentation, going through electroacoustic improv, reductionism and noise."
