descriptions, reviews, &c.

"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


Artist Biographies:

"Averse to any linearity, the idiosyncratic Luís Lopes, a musician connected to Jazz, improvised and experimental music, has been building his career, a simple and singular story, characterised by a unique voice, free of corsets, formal ties or constraints and mannerisms regarding strict stilistical implications. He is an unfollower... experiments himself through paradoxes. Invokes teachings by following standards of subversion to any possibility of pre-established idea. Eminent self-subversion... Introspective timeless trance.

Running Multi-international groups, especially his Humanization 4tet (with Portuguese Rodrigo Amado and Texan's Aaron and Stefan Gonzalez), Lisbon Berlin Trio (with Germans Christian Lillinger, Robert Landfermann), and his "Noise" or "Love Song(s)" Solos, plus his highly recommended records he is growing as an international artist, playing at important Festivals and venues not just in Portugal but in Europe and U.S.

Coming from a rock/punk and blues background, while studying at local classic and rock schools, he began studying Jazz at Hot Club Portugal School and then was finalist at Escola de Jazz do Barreiro/Lisbon. Then did studies with Saxophonist Joe Giardullo who opened for him the doors of modern jazz harmony complexity through the George Russell's "Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization", plunging Lopes into the world of improvised and experimental music, without disregard for his fascination with distorion and guitar feedbacks, expressed in different incursions into noise music, while also canalizes energys towards projects where he can develop his composing abilities.

In more recent times, Lopes has played and / or recorded with different artists connected to jazz and improvised music, such as Noel Akchoté, Christian Lillinger, Robert Landfermann, Marco Von Orelly, Marc Unternahrer, Adam Lane, Igal Foni, Floros Floridis, Joe Giardulo, Harvey Sorgen, Benjamin Duboc, Phill Niblock, Ernesto Rodrigues, Paulo Curado, Sei Miguel, Rodrigo Amado, Hernâni Faustino, Gabriel Ferrandini, Rodrigo Pinheiro, Miguel Mira, Aaron Gonzalez, Stefan Gonzalez, Dennis Gonzalez, Elliot Levin, Alfred Hart, Daniel Levin, Reuben Radding, Daniel Carter, Jeb Bishop, Josh Abrams, Jean-Luc Guionnet, Samuel Blaser, Boris Hauf, Evan Parker, Olivier Benoit, Fred Lomberg-holm, Valentin Ceccaldi, Gonçalo Almeida, among many others."
