Furuya, Nobuyasu Trio

Furuya, Nobuyasu Trio: Bendowa (Clean Feed)
Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    

"Born in Japan, but living and playing in Lisbon, Nobuyasu Furuya is agitating the waters of the jazz and improvised music scene in Portugal either with his smashing blow, remembering the washes of sound by Archie Shepp and Peter Brotzmann, or with an implacable energy control and rigour, the same we find in the Japanese tea cerimonies, bonsai trees and stone gardens. In his youth a cook apprentice in a Zen budhist temple, Furuya began to play barroque European music, but soon free jazz focused his interest. A composer for dance, theatre and cinema, he also played in noise and ska-core bands. For some time, this multi-instrumentalist (tenor saxophone, bass clarinet and flute) studied the Otoman classical music from Turkey, and this experience influenced his future options. In Furuya's Portuguese trio, we find double bassist Hernâni Faustino and drummer Gabriel Ferrandini, both of them musicians who play with guts and brain, a not very common combination. The music in "Bendowa" - the title of a 13th century book writen by Dogen, the monk who founded Soto Zen - has everything to surprise you. "I play because I have something to say: it can be silence and murmur, or it can be a shout" - says Nobuyasu Furuya."-Clean Feed
