MATINEE: Fred Frith / Susana Santos Silva (duo)

No Longer Available

“The scope of textures, expressions, and impressions gathered here is just phenomenal; the  dance between solo and accompaniment so blurred and so delectable; the tightness of the  music so very sharp and consistent” – Best of Jazz 

After first crossing paths at a workshop in Porto in 2011, Susana has been involved in several  of Fred’s projects, including a quartet with Chris Cutler and Heike Liss in Zagreb; TaTaTa in  Darmstadt, along with Heike Liss, Okkyung Lee, Lotte Anker, Christine Wodrascka and the  Hessische Rundfunk Big Band; and more recently traveling with the Fred Frith Trio and Heike  in Brazil, Canada and the USA. Their first record Laying Demons to Rest was recorded in 2021  at the Météo Festival in Mulhouse, recorded by Radio France and released on the Rogu’Art  label to rave reviews. The duo is touring in Europe in November 2023 and January 2024 

“Time spent in their company is a riveting experience, a constant journey of discovery for listener and musician alike, with minimal repetition of ideas or approaches” – AllAboutJazz

“After listening to this album over and over you may be assured that its enigmatic, rare beauty, magical spells and suggestive, emotional power can lay all kinds of demons to rest …This magical ritual lasts only 42 minutes but offers healthy doses of sublime beauty and cathartic promise about the healing power of music.” – Eyal Hareuveni, FreeJazzCollective
