Eduardo Cardinho Quarteto was chosen to end the SeixalJazz International Festival 2020, another memorable edition with excellent concerts and musicians.
Eduardo Cardinho graduated in Jazz by ESMAE and winner of several competitions, highlighting the International Fermo Contest and Best Instrumentalist at the Jazz Festival of São Luiz 2014, studied vibraphone with Jeffery Davis is another name of undisputed talent in the Portuguese jazz scene.
“Eduardo Cardinho Quinteto” of 2015 is his first record work, publishing in 2019 the second entitled “In Search of Light” with the participation of saxophonist Ben Van Gelder and was considered one of the best albums of the year by Jazz Logical and Jazz.pt.
The quintet includes, in addition to Eduardo Cardinho, João Barradas on the accordion, Bruno Pedroso on the drums and André Rosinha on the double bass. Among the various themes he performed, we highlight “Insert of light“, the theme that gives the album its name, but also several new themes that we can “thank” to the pandemic and the months of lockdown, such as “Hope“, “Simplicity“, “Anxiety” and “New 33”.
At a time when there are fewer and fewer shows, due to the pandemic, it is worth noting and praising that SeixalJazz has been held, showing once again that it is possible to see shows safely, supporting the artists.
