Pianist David Ryshpan has been with Ropeadope, and FOR Ropeadope for more than ten years. Based in Montreal, David has been on the scene as a musician and DJ, and though trained in Jazz, Brazilian music is his love. His new project with bassist Nicolas Bédard and drummer Mark Nelson, Trio Bruxo, is inspired by the Brazilian “samba-jazz” piano trios of the 1960s and 1970s. Beginning their career by exploring the diversity of the Brazilian songbook, these new compositions by are inspired by Brazilian multi-instrumentalists and composers Hermeto Pascoal and Egberto Gismonti.
‘I named the group Trio Bruxo after reading an article on Hermeto, who is often referred to as a bruxo or sorcerer. His mystical presence truly imbues him with the magical aura of a wizard.’
The Sorcerer’s Flag is the new album from Trio Bruxo, set for release on October 4th, with preorders starting this Friday.
