This is the last post of 2015 and, with Orrù, Mar, Rocha – “Live at MIA 2015” (EndTitles) – we’re at the best of list compiled by Dave Foxall’s at A Jazz Noise.
The Orrù, Mar, Rocha trio was born at MIA, a big festival/meeting of improvised music at a Atouguia da Baleia a tiny city in Portugal by suggestion of Paulo Chagas – one of the festival’s curator and producer. It was a pleasure to play and we decided to keep it flowing, release that recording and play more.
Orrù Mar Rocha Trio, recorded live at MIA 2015 and beautifully released by the Swiss label EndTitles.
The trio was brought to life by Paulo Chagas, the curator and the commander-in-chief along with Fernando Simões, of MIA – a festival that takes place every May in Atouguia da Baleia, Portugal. He invited us to play at the old St. Joseph’s Church for the opening of the festival and we’ve met just before the concert, while sound checking.
It worked so well that we settled as a trio and EndTitles decided to release the recording of that concert.
Back in the groove after some time recording and chilling out in Brasilia, my hometown in Brazil!
It’s great to be playing once again with Adriano Orrù and Maria do Mar. We’re now at the 2015 edition of the Creative Fest, a cool festival organized by the label Creative Sources, where we’ll release an album we recorded live at St. Joseph’s church, during MIA – another great Portuguese festival, on May 2015. The Swedish label EndTitles is releasing it and the pre-orders are available at their web. Click here to grab it. We’re so happy about it and Maria just can’t stop smiling!!
