Next May, Tó Trips presents the new album “Popular Jaguar” at Casa da Música, in Porto. The guitarist takes the stage in a trio format with António Quintino on double bass and Helena Espvall on cello.
Tó Trips is, quite simply, an unavoidable name in the multiple national music scenes of the last three or maybe even four decades. He was a practitioner of the wilder side of rock in Lulu Blind and reinvented himself in one of the most original projects in Portuguese popular music, Dead Combo, which he shared with the late Pedro Gonçalves and traveled the world with.
More recently, he created Club Makumba, but he also knew how to dispense with companies to project himself, in two absolute solo albums, in the solitude that one discovers when there is only a guitar next to him, but this show is seen from another angle: with António Quintino on double bass and Helena Espvall on cello.
A string trio formed with two names that have traveled different terrains of the most adventurous jazz and improvised music that side with Tó Trips in his search for highly evocative music, with dramatic thickness, quite poetic and frankly passionate. Popular Jaguar is the new record where this whole world reveals itself. On stage, the magic is even more intense.
