Carlos Bica & Azul

Line-up: Carlos Bica (bass) Frank Möbus (electric guitar) Jim Black (dr, perc)

Azul"Azul" earned delighted reviews everywhere and was voted Jazz Album of the Year in Portugal. The band played big European festivals (e.g. Lissabon, Berlin, Nuremberg) and did several radio productions. Bridging Portuguese roots with creative freedom à la Knitting Factory, Azul gives a new and airy definition of guitar trio aesthetics. [more]

Daerr-Bica-Stick

Line-up: Carsten Daerr (piano), Carlos Bica (bass), Hanno Stick (drums)

Carlos Bica and Carsten Daerr are two international musicians who have long been acknowledged as part of the driving force of the Berlin jazz scene. They came together almost ten years ago when they joined the group Tuomi, led by the singer Kristiina Tuomi. The two musicians have worked together ever since, on their own projects and with several different ensembles. The Berlin drummer Hanno Stick, the third member of the trio, is the perfect missing link the band was looking for. www.carstendaerr.de

MOVE String Quartet

Line-up: Susanne Paul (cello), Gerður Gunnarsdóttir (violin), Ari Poutiainen (viola), Carlos Bica (bass)

Susanne Paul's MOVE String Quartet explores a string-specific perspective on jazz, deeply rooted in sounds and techniques that are natural to string instruments. It merges modern jazz and European musical traditions into a unique style of its own. The inventive compositions shape concise musical brushstrokes into intense chamber music, always subtly rooted in groove. The unconventional line-up with a double bass makes for an especially rich, warm quartet sound. The quartet's accomplished musicians easily find the right balance between the freedom of improvisation and the subtleties of the compositions. The MOVE String Quartet's lineup is international (from Germany/USA, Iceland, Finland, Portugal) and based in Berlin. www.movequartet.com

"Single" - Double Bass Solo

Line-up: Carlos Bica (bass)

Carlos Bica…his play gives us the impression as if musician and instrument were just one. (Nürnberger Nachrichten)

"Single" is also the title of the double bass solo CD that was recorded at the RadioBerlinBrandenburg Studios and that will be released in 2005 by BorLand Records.

Tuomi

Line-up: Kristiina Tuomi (voc), Carlos Bica (bass), Carsten Daerr (p)

Kristiina TuomiThe three musicians met in Berlin and immediately discovered their own sound. The trios program contains only original material in exception of some Shakespeare sonnets and poems by E.A.Poe. Their unique approach leaps across the stylistic borders of chamber music, folk, pop, jazz the art of song, with the entertaining ease and serious intensity of musical virtuosity. [more]
