descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Rodrigo Amado's improvising Motion Trio might be better described as The Confluence Trio or Conflux, because its sound is a meeting of rivers. Like the three rivers of Pittsburgh, where the Monongahela and Allegheny Rivers join to create the Ohio River, or Sangam, India where the Ganges, Yamuna and Saraswati meet, the music of the Motion Trio flows together to create a seamless whole, as was quite evident on its self-titled debut, Motion Trio (European Echoes, 2010).

The trio returns with saxophonist Amado, cellist Miguel Mira and drummer Gabriel Ferrandini, and adds a fourth tributary with trombonist Jeb Bishop, best known for his work with the early Vandermark 5, saxophonist Peter Brötzmann's Chicago Tentet, Rob Mazurek's Exploding Star Orchestra, and his own bands Lucky 7s and The Engines (which he co-leads with Dave Rempis). The additional watercourse neither diverts nor disturbs the improvising trio; Bishop does, however, deepen the sound.

Recorded live the Jazz AO Centro Festival in Coimbra, Portugal the foursome instantly composes three very balanced and lengthy pieces. The opener is not so much a call-and- response between Amado and Bishop as it is two defenders standing back-to-back, discharging notes at all comers. The intensity spike is heightened here by Ferrandini's barrage and Mira's attack (wow, that's a cello?). Halfway through the piece the tone lightens, with Bishop and Amado applying longer lines, stretching out the sound. Nothing shifts, but the load is carried by individual players, then duos, and then, in staggering immensity, the entire quartet. "Red Halo" opens with a cello solo before some inspired and energetic jazz is passed among the players.

The noteworthiness of Burning Live is the consistent flow of ideas. The band maintains momentum even in the quietest moments. "Imaginary Caverns," the album's central piece-and its longest, at nearly 26 minutes-opens with a conversation between Amado and Bishop's muted trombone. This lingering lollygagging nature has Bishop trading off with Ferrandini, followed by the trio's full flight, before Bishop reenters. The impetus of the music carries the players inside its cascading form, and just keeps rolling along."-All About Jazz

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."

"Jeb Bishop was born in Raleigh, North Carolina during the Cuban missile crisis. He began playing the trombone at the age of 10, under the tutelage of Cora Grasser. Other influential teachers during junior high and high school included Jeanne Nelson, Eric Carlson, Richard Fecteau, Greg Cox, and James Cozart.

He majored in classical trombone performance at Northwestern University from 1980-82, studying with Frank Crisafulli. Deciding he did not want to pursue a career as an orchestral musician, he returned to Raleigh in 1982 and took up engineering studies at NC State University. Raleigh's developing underground rock scene attracted him, and from 1982-84 he played bass guitar in rock bands in the Raleigh area.

At the same time, he developed an interest in philosophy, eventually majoring in the subject, and spent 1984-85 studying philosophy at the Higher Institute of Philosophy of the Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium.

Returing to Raleigh in 1985, he spent the next few years working at menial jobs and playing guitar, bass, cheap keyboards, drums, etc., in rock bands including and/or, the Angels of Epistemology, Egg, and Metal Pitcher.

In 1989 he left Raleigh to pursue graduate studies in philosophy, first at the University of Arizona, then at Loyola University of Chicago (where he was awarded the Crown Fellowship in the Humanities). During 1991-92 he returned to Europe, spending the summer of 1991 studying German at the Goethe-Institut Iserlohn (now closed), and then pursuing independent studies in philosophy at the French-language division of the University of Louvain.

Returning to Chicago in 1992, he completed his M.A. at Loyola in 1993. By this time he had already begun to make connections with improvising musicians in Chicago, having joined the Flying Luttenbachers as bassist (later adding trombone) in late 1992, and playing guitar occasionally in a quartet with Weasel Walter, Ken Vandermark, and Kevin Drumm. Other bands during this period included the Unheard Music Quartet (with Vandermark, Mike Hagedorn on trombone, and Otto Huber on drums) and the Rev Trio (with Walter and saxophonist Joe Vajarsky). Bishop played electric bass in both these bands.

In late 1995, Bishop joined the Vandermark 5 as one of its founding members, and remained with the band through the end of 2004. During this period he also became associated with many other groups, including the Peter Brötzmann Chicago Tentet, School Days, Ken Vandermark's Territory Band, and his own Jeb Bishop Trio, and became a very frequent participant in ad hoc and free-improvised concerts in Chicago. Bishop performed in the inaugural concerts of two of the longest-running free-music concert series in Chicago: the Myopic Books weekly concerts (originally at Czar Bar; with Rev Trio) and the Empty Bottle Wednesday night concert series (with a quartet of Terri Kapsalis, Kevin Drumm, and Jim O'Rourke). He curated the monthly Chicago Improvisers Group concerts at the Green Mill from 1999-2002, and co-curated the weekly Eight Million Heroes concert series at Sylvie's in 2005-6.

Bishop has made dozens of recordings with many different groups, has toured North America and Europe many times, and maintains a busy performing schedule."

"He started playing drums at fourteen, when he took up his musical studies at the Crescendo School in São João do Estoril, near Lisbon. At nineteen, he made studies at the Hot Clube Portugal, where he stayed for a year and a half. In 2006 he entered the Academia de Amadores de Música where he studies to this day with Alexandre Frazão as his master. In 2007 he did a workshop with the drummer Paal Nilssen-Love.

Towards the end of 2007 and to date he has taken part in various concerts with multiple projects alongside artists and ensembles like: Nobuyasu Furuya Trio, Rodrigo Amado Motion Trio, Alípio C. Neto, Carlos Zíngaro, DJ Ride, Variable Geometry Orchestra, Riot Trio, Luís Lopes Duo, John Butcher, Jason Stein, Jon Irabagon, Ernesto Rodrigues Septet and the Nikolaus Gerszewski Ensemble."
