Basso3 – double-bass trio

For over a year I’m teaming up with fellow bass players Alvaro Rosso and José Miguel Pereira in a double-bass trio format – Basso3 (facebook page)

Since around 2009 I have started to experiment with other musicians from the improvisation field, in particular participating on the MIA encounters and more recently at the MEIA festival in Aveiro. It was precisely on the opening edition of this event that the concert now registered in the shape of an album took place, in a brilliant effort by the Pássaro Vago label.

The album is on free streaming but the CD may also be purchased at Pássaro Vago’s bancamp page.

I hope these new sounds will capture your imagination!

“3 winds, 3 doublebasses” CD

MiMi Records released a CD entitled “3 sopros x 3 contrabaixos” (3 winds x 3 doublebasses). These are recordings from a live performance of the Curado, Chagas, Viegas “Wind Trio”, featuring japanese doublebassist Maresuke Okamoto, on his first visit to Portugal, last April. To complete the bass trio, myself and fellow local bassist José Miguel Pereira were invited.

The performance is fully improvised.  This was a great opportunity for me to play with experienced musicians and to try different ways of sound expression.

The concert is available on live streaming and free download.
