Artist Biographies:

"Bernardo da Costa Sassetti Pais (24 June 1970 - 10 May 2012) was a Portuguese jazz pianist and film composer.

Sassetti was born in Lisbon. He was a great-grandson of Sidónio Pais, President of the First Republic. He initially played guitar, then began studying piano and music theory at age nine. He became interested in jazz after hearing Bill Evans. By the late 1980s, he was backing visiting musicians and teaching jazz piano in Lisbon (and, later, taught throughout other lusophonic areas). During the 1990s, he worked in London, where he recorded three albums with Guy Barker's group. Anthony Minghella invited them to appear as the Napoli Jazz Sextet in The Talented Mr. Ripley.

His 2006 album Unreal: Sidewalk Cartoon received a four-star rating (of a possible four) in The Penguin Guide to Jazz (9th ed.), and was selected for The Penguin Jazz Guide: The History of the Music in the 1000 Best Albums.

In addition to his jazz work, Sassetti has composed numerous film scores.

Bernardo Sassetti was married to actress Beatriz Batarda, with whom he had two daughters.

He died on 10 May 2012, after falling off a cliff in Guincho Cascais (Portugal), where he was reportedly shooting pictures for his next book."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"After seven years of the enormous success obtained by the album "Nocturno", the most selled instrumental jazz record ever in Portugal, the Bernardo Sassetti Trio is back with another masterwork. "Motion" opens with a surprising jazz arrangement of a song by Mark Linkous for the alternative rock band Sparkle Horse, and includes an exquisite version of a piece by the catalan classical contemporary composer Federico Mompou. The rest are wonderful suites written by the renowned Portuguese jazz pianist, also internationally recognized as the author of several film soundtracks.

Bernardo Sassetti is like a good Portuguese red wine: he gets better over the years. And in "Motion" we find him at the top of his game, either dealing with the black and white keyboard as with a pen. His trio with Carlos Barretto (double bass) and Alexandre Frazão (drums) is the older and most stable combo in this country (more than 12 years now), but the music they present in this CD isn't the freezed result of a closed concept: it developed in astonishing ways, it's more profound and incisive, more mysterious and sublimated. Like with Sparkle Horse, this music can be surrealistic and ethereal, and like with Mompou it deals with secret emotions and with the essentiality obtained by the use of fewer, but fundamental and opportune, notes and sounds. What a fantastic achievement indeed!"-Clean Feed
