It's a great pleasure to release the third chapeter of Norberto Lobo's trilogy on three:four records.

If it is easily identifiable by the black and white photography by António Júlio Duarte on the front cover, the music brings some newness: for the first time under his own name, Norberto Lobo is playing with a trio composed of Yaw Tembe (trumpet), Ricardo Jacinto (cello) and Marco Franco (drums).

For many months, he had been playing with Ricardo Jacinto, Marco Franco and Yaw Tembe - first in different duos, later in trios, and finally in the final formation in quartet - to create new arrangements for Lobo’s compositions. Meticulously, Norberto Lobo has been establishing a very strong relationship between his guitar and the cello, trumpet and drums, forging a collaborationist ensemble that amplified the magic of the music we used to know from his solo performances. The arrangements make some Lobo’s influences like Tom Zé, Moacir Santos, Noel Rosa or 50’s jazz more obvious. But paradoxically, Estrela sounds like his most personal record to date. According to Lobo, a dream comes true; for us it only begins.

Pre-order: Norberto Lobo - Estrela

Pre-order LP, CD or digital version on Bandcamp

Estrela is the third chapter of Norberto Lobo’s solo records on three:four. If it is easily identifiable by the black and white photography by António Júlio Duarte on the front cover, the music brings some newness: for the first time under his own name, Norberto Lobo is playing with a trio composed of Yaw Tembe (trumpet), Ricardo Jacinto (cello) and Marco Franco (drums). Paradoxically, it's accompanied by these experimented musicians that Estrela sounds like his most personal record to date.

Lobo's unique approach of composition claim some influences (Tom Zé, Moacir Santos, 50’s jazz) in a more assured way. Once again a result of his rich inner world, his puissant curiosity for life and people – fellow musicians, his peers, and audiences, other countries, languages and cultures – and a particular aesthetic disquietude to the musical language that he has been blessing us with his six strings.
