Who Are The Rite of Trio?
André B. Silva – Guitar

These fellows are deadly serious in what they are doing and what they want to say, despite the projection of extreme irony, irreverence and a lack of caring what you think (of course, in the nicest way)…All About Jazz – Budd Kopman
What is The Rite of Trio?
The Rite of Trio is a Jazz Jambacore trio that got together to change the spherical configuration of Planet Earth.
The Rite of Trio is a special musical collaboration between André Silva, Filipe Louro and Pedro Melo Alves.
Coming out of the sounds, attitude and concepts of erudite music – such as Stravinsky and Ligeti – progressive/punk bands – such as Lounge Lizards, The Mars Volta or Dream Theater – or contemporary jazz acts such as Adam Lane, Craig Taborn or John Hollenbeck – this is also a full metaphor for life – infinitely chaotic and complex yet powerful and full of love and humor.
The trio’s debut album GETTING ALL THE EVIL OF THE PISTON COLLAR! was released in 2015 through Carimbo Porta-Jazz and figures among Jazz.pt and JazzLogical’s album choices for 2015.
The Rite of Trio has toured widely around the world, being featured in major Portuguese and European festivals and considered by some one of the most refreshing European groups to come on the scene lately.
