Who Are The Rite of Trio?
André B. Silva – Guitar
Filipe Louro – Bass
Pedro Melo Alves – Drums
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.
Six years after the internationally acclaimed GETTING ALL THE EVIL OF THE PISTON COLLAR!, the uncontested masters of jambacore – André B. Silva, Pedro Melo Alves and Filipe Louro – strike again with a powerful new album in which they give full throttle to their nonsensical, humoristic, ironic, cynical, in-your-face and yes, crazy, musical post-post modernist concept. The music is made of the debris of past avant-gardes, coming from jazz, contemporary classical music, metal, punk and some other frontlines of counter-cultural expression. The result is a delirium of sounds and forms, as the title promises. It provokes us, as in “You Don’t Mind if We Laugh” and “Ego.Death”; confuses us in “C2H3Cl3O2”, and it makes you believe that there’s still space for something different, uncompromised, committed and new. The Rite of Trio may be playing us around, but the music is damn serious and it will, for sure, affect you in pleasant, though somewhat strange ways. Are you prepared for this sonic assault?
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.
