Today we release “Luz” (NIS0016) by Isabel Rato Quinteto. The third studio album by Isabel Rato is deeply inspired by the omnipresence of impermanence of our current times, but also by a real hope for the present as well as the future. As a pianist, composer, arranger and producer in the realms of Portuguese jazz, her music visits musical universes ranging from jazz to traditional Portuguese folk music with deep influences of classical music.
The album features special guest appearances by vocalists Cristina Branco and Sofia Vitória as well as the Portuguese string quartet Quarteto Arabesco.
Alexandre Ferreira Alves – drums;
Sofia Vitória – voc;
