Following 2006's Teatro, his first internationally-acclaimed trio recording with North American double-bassist Kent Kessler and Norwegian drummer Paal Nilssen-Love, Portuguese sax player Rodrigo Amado presents The Abstract Truth on his very own European Echoes imprint. The album works as an homage to Italian painter Giorgio de Chirico, while nodding to the legendary Oliver Nelson recording of the same name -- using improvisation as a complex and demanding discipline that reveals all of what a musician is and can become. Amado is one of the top improvisers in Portugal. Followers of his work refer to him as an original player able to balance the dynamics and intense energy of free-playing with a distinct melodic sense that brings to mind the great tradition of the instrument, from Parker to Rollins. Kessler and Nilssen-Love are two of the most in-demand and sought-after improvisers on the scene, working with the likes of Peter Brötzmann (both are members of the acclaimed Brötzmann Tentet), Ken Vandermark, Joe McPhee, Evan Parker, Mats Gustafsson and Fred Anderson, amongst many others.
Rodrigo Amado (tenor and baritone saxophones); Ken Kessler (double bass); Paal Nilssen-Love (drums)

Amado has the "CHOPS" and continues to deliver w/ a sense of elegance and originality that is so explosive and dynamic right down to the final note.
