Carlos Bica & Azul

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]

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
