“Implosão” is the second original music project led by spanish trumpeter Ricardo Formoso (03-03-1986 A Coruña, Spain). After his debut as a composer on the album “Origens”, released in December 2017, Formoso presents his new set of compositions at the 10th Porta-Jazz Festival (09-02-2020 Porto, Portugal) accompanied by four excellent musicians who complete an international quintet.

The solidity and dynamism of the canadian saxophonist Seamus Blake, the versatility and sophistication of the spanish pianist Albert Bover and the fantastic duo in the rhythm section by the undisputed Demian Cabaud on the bass and Marcos Cavaleiro on the drums, contribute depth, surprise and magic to this project. They form a beautiful sample of the recent history of jazz, with careers linked to notable figures of the jazz environment from several generations.

“Implosão” contains a repertoire designed to provide a reaction between the molecular structures that configure the essence and voice of the elements of this formation in a context determined by the careful arrangement, improvisation and the discovery of the cosmos.
