sample the album:
"The encounter of a Lisbon-born and two Berliners documented by this CD isn't, of course, the only focus of interest proposed by this music. There's something more to add to the equation. Luís Lopes and the rhythm section provided by Robert Landfermann and Christian Lillinger are three good examples of a new generation of European musicians with a rather distinctive understanding of the musical language called "jazz". They don't specially care to give a 21st century content to the jazz format; it just happens they enjoy, and play, different kinds of music, and usually do it crossing boundaries and mixing vocabularies.
Lopes comes from blues and rock and, as such, loves to use riffs and has a special liking for feedback, distortion and electrical textures and noises. To Landfermann and Lillinger, there's no real incompatibility between hard bop structures, free form improvisation and punk beats; they use everything possible if it fits and makes sense to them. The result is, truly saying, jazz of the 21st century, but without a program of intentions. "Lisbon / Berlin Trio" is as intuitive and authentic as it can be, and that's what really matters here. That, and the high quality achieved."-Clean Feed Records
