A dark and gritty album of experimental improvisation from the Portuguese trio of Jose Bruno Parrinha on reeds, Luis Lopes on electric guitar, and Ricard Jacinto on cello and electronics, dense yet restrained playing that occasionally emerges to moments of beauty.

Parrinha, Bruno / Luis Lopes / Ricardo Jacinto: Garden (Clean Feed)

Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    


"The formation of a band is usually justified by the common conceptions and interests of its members, but in the case of this Portuguese trio we have an example confirming that the inverse idea can also be true. In fact, José Bruno Parrinha, Luís Lopes and Ricardo Jacinto couldn't be more different from each other, be it in terms of backgrounds, vocabularies, used techniques and even attitudes.

Parrinha comes from jazz studies and is now committed to a very refined idea of free improvised music. Lopes has a past in rock and his projects either glue that type of sound with open form jazz or go to the domains of extreme guitar noise. Also a sound sculptor and instalacionist, Jacinto works usually in the field of experimental music, with some interludes inside the pop song world. When this trio presented itself in concert for the first time, it was a surprise. They found a key to communicate musically and that key is a collective capacity to measure energy and to weigh materials. "Garden" is a marvel of controlled, even when intense, improvisation, and of a very disciplined, and yet seeming loose, economy of sounds.

It's amazing listening to how Parrinha clarinet or saxophones deal with only three or four notes in a piece, exploring the combinations until he can't do nothing more with it. How is it possible to do so much with such few elements? How can Lopes and Jacinto do more with less, even using electricity and electronic processors? It's a mystery, and an incredibly seductive one."-Clean Feed Records
