Artist Biographies:

"Saxophonist Ricardo Toscano grew up playing ball and listening to jazz. The young musician began in the Band of the Philharmonic Society Operária Amorense, where at age 8 he played the clarinet, continuing his musical education at the Metropolitana professional school and at the Luis Villas Boas Jazz School where, at the age of 16, he started playing the saxophone.

Considered the best national musician in 2015, with only 22 years, that year he sold out two dates at Culturgest and already in 2016 he filled the Centro Cultural de Belém. The celebration of a journey that was not merely a school learning, but above all a passion for jazz, when still small the father familiarized it with Cannonball Adderley discs in duet with Bill Evans, Miles Davis or John Coltrane.

From an early age Ricardo Toscano became aware that his future was for jazz and for the saxophone dictated by the saxophone. He began to record his name in the music scene, gaining visibility while lounging Mário Laginha in the resuscitated Lisbon Sextet Jazz, and having in the curriculum shows at Estoril Jazz and Angra Jazz, performances with the Sexteto de Lisboa, Decateto de Nelson Cascais, the Mingus Project or in the formations of Júlio Resende.

Still very young, Toscano revisits the tradition hard bop, drinking in Coltrane, Parker or Ornette Coleman, historical period of the jazz that considers more stimulating. In Seixal, he is accompanied by young musicians, João Pedro Coelho, Romeu Tristão and João Pereira. Passionate about the same musical record, balanced between melodious repertoire and free improvisation, the quartet has established its jazz language and plans to record its first record."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"The prodigal son of Portuguese jazz is finally on record. Since his teenager years until he became a young man (25 years old in 2018) we get used to only hear him on stage, improvising with the tunes of American masters like Charlie Parker, "Cannonball" Adderley, John Coltrane and Ornette Coleman, among many others of different times in the "jazz continuum".

Now, we can seat at our homes and listen to his superb alto sax playing his own compositions. With one exception: Herbie Hancock's "The Sorcerer". Ricardo Toscano managed to interpret the tradition simultaneously with the same authenticity of the originals (really? really!) and with a remarkable freshness of approach, as if an old standard was something completely new. He keeps doing it, but the inevitable (considering his superlative capacities) happened: he's playing now his own inner world, born from Toscano's many auditions of the jazz patrimony. Or patrimonies, because this force of life is a fundamental contributor to the avant / groovy music of Marco Barroso's Lisbon Underground Music Ensemble, also known as LUME (Fire in English), at the same time dedicating himself to the compositions of the late Bernardo Sassetti and beginning partnerships with free improvisers like Rodrigo Pinheiro, Miguel Mira and Gabriel Ferrandini.

Step by step, with no urgencies and refusing to be obfuscated by fame and success, Toscano opened his space of action and is now a more complete musician. This CD, named after the quartet he founded with the like minded (and like aged, like talented) Joao Pedro Coelho, Romeu Tristao and Joao Lopes Pereira, marks a new beginning in his ascensional path. It's impossible to know what the future brings to him, but one thing is for sure: it's going to be great."-Clean Feed
