RED Trio RED Trio

RED trio is a group that presents a multiplicity of approaches to music playing and composition in real time by improvisation.

Formed by three musicians from the new improvised music Lisbon scene from an idea by Hernâni Faustino, RED trio features Rodrigo Pinheiro at the piano, Hernani Faustino at the doublebass and Gabriel Ferrandini at the drums. RED Trio explores one of the most prolific jazz formations: piano/doublebass/drums. The trio's music is characterized for being fast, energic, highly focused, dynamic and sometimes nervous and violent. Most of RED trio influences are based on jazz and especially on improvised music. A three part counterpoint oscillating between the most subtle sound to a sonic burst full of violence and intensity.

Rodrigo Pinheiro

Born in 1973 at Covilhã, a small town at the center of Portugal. Started learning music at the age of five. At the age of eighteen moved to Lisboa and at the same time began to get increasingly involved with the free improvisation scene at Portugal. Since then he had the opportunity to work with musicians like Américo Rodrigues, José Oliveira, Nuno Rebelo, Rodrigo Amado, Luis Desirat, Bruno Parrinha, Ernesto Rodrigues, Hiroshi Kobayashi, Cristin Wilboltz, Patrick Brennan, Nathan Fuhr, Blaise Siwula and lots of other musicians from Portugal and abroad. Worked and studied with musicians like Carlos Zíngaro, Peter Kowald, Gunther Muller and with John Zorn who directed the “Cobra Portuguese Ensemble” where he played the piano. More recently started RED trio with Hernani Faustino and Gabriel Ferrandini and has collaborated with Nobuyasu Furuya, John Butcher and Nate Wooley.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
