Artist Biographies:

"Saxophonist Ricardo Toscano grew up playing ball and listening to jazz. The young musician began in the Band of the Philharmonic Society Operária Amorense, where at age 8 he played the clarinet, continuing his musical education at the Metropolitana professional school and at the Luis Villas Boas Jazz School where, at the age of 16, he started playing the saxophone.

Considered the best national musician in 2015, with only 22 years, that year he sold out two dates at Culturgest and already in 2016 he filled the Centro Cultural de Belém. The celebration of a journey that was not merely a school learning, but above all a passion for jazz, when still small the father familiarized it with Cannonball Adderley discs in duet with Bill Evans, Miles Davis or John Coltrane.

From an early age Ricardo Toscano became aware that his future was for jazz and for the saxophone dictated by the saxophone. He began to record his name in the music scene, gaining visibility while lounging Mário Laginha in the resuscitated Lisbon Sextet Jazz, and having in the curriculum shows at Estoril Jazz and Angra Jazz, performances with the Sexteto de Lisboa, Decateto de Nelson Cascais, the Mingus Project or in the formations of Júlio Resende.

Still very young, Toscano revisits the tradition hard bop, drinking in Coltrane, Parker or Ornette Coleman, historical period of the jazz that considers more stimulating. In Seixal, he is accompanied by young musicians, João Pedro Coelho, Romeu Tristão and João Pereira. Passionate about the same musical record, balanced between melodious repertoire and free improvisation, the quartet has established its jazz language and plans to record its first record."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"After playing along with some of the most incredible fado singers in the country for quite a few years, Ricardo Toscano is back to jazz with two of his comrades, bassist Romeu Tristao and drummer Joao Pereira. The music featuring two compositions by him, one by Joao Pereira, one by Thelonious Monk and one traditional fado song, runs open and wide showcasing the empathy of three like minded guys that play together for 15 years. Make no mistake, this is a high class swinging trio."-Clean Feed
