Il s’agit du «Trio européen» de Raúl Barboza. Nous jouons activement en France et à l’étranger depuis presque une décennie, mais nous n’avions jamais enregistré en studio en tant que trio (Raul et moi avions enregistré un album en duo, Ruta 40, Norberto avait enregistré avec Raul sur certains des albums de Barboza. A partir de la fin des années 1990, Norberto et moi-même collaborons depuis longtemps sur les disques de l’un et de l’autre, notamment en tant que Norberto Pedreira Trio ).

Après quelques concerts en France il y a deux ans, nous avons décidé d’aller en studio et de jouer de manière informelle notre set-list habituel, juste pour le plaisir et pour avoir un souvenir enregistré de nos interprétations plus «free» et improvisées de certains des chamamés classiques de Barboza.

Je suis retourné à ces sessions cette année afin de choisir les meilleures prises et de mixer les masters 4 pistes pour une séance d’écoute avec Raúl et Norberto.

L’ambiance détendue, informelle, chaleureuse (parfois inégale), sensible et décontractée, nous a plu. Nous avons donc décidé de le publier «tel quel».

La pochette est une photo gracieusement proposée par le photographe américain Paul Hosefros (NY Times).

Merci pour votre écoute,

Cordialement

Raul Barboza trio Live, Armenia 2017

Este es el trío “Europeo” de Raúl Barboza. Hemos estado activos actuando en Francia y en el extranjero durante la última década, pero nunca antes grabamos en el estudio como trío (hice un álbum en dúo con Raúl Ruta 40 , Norberto grabó con Raúl en algunos de los álbumes de Barboza de finales de los 90 y Norberto y yo hemos colaborado en los discos de cada uno durante mucho tiempo, especialmente en el Norberto Pedreira Trio).

Después de algunos shows en Francia hace un par de años, decidimos ir al estudio y realizar informalmente nuestra lista habitual, solo por diversión y para tener un recuerdo grabado de nuestra versión más libre e improvisada, casi “jazz” de algunos de los chamamés clásicos de Barboza.

Regresé a esas sesiones archivadas este año, para elegir las mejores tomas y mezclar las grabaciones de 4 pistas para una sesión de escucha con Raúl y Norberto.

La sensación relajada e informal, cálida aunque áspera a veces, siempre sensible y entretenida, nos gustó a los tres y decidimos lanzarla “tal como está”.

Raul Barboza Trio Live, Armenia 2017

This is Raul Barboza “European Trio”. We’ve been actively performing in France and abroad for the past decade, but we never recorded in the studio as a trio before (Raul and I did an album alone as a duo, Ruta 40, Norberto recorded with Raul on some of Barboza’s albums from the late 1990’s and Norberto and I have collaborated on each other’s records for a long time, most notably on Norberto Pedreira Trio).

After some shows in France a couple of years ago, we decided to go to the studio and informally perform our usual set-list, just for fun and to have a recorded souvenir of our more “free” improvised takes on some of Barboza’s standard “chamamés”.

I went back to those shelved sessions this year in order to choose the best takes and mix down the 4-track masters for a listening session with Raul and Norberto.

The relaxed, informal, warm (albeit rough at times), sensitive and fun feel, pleased us. So we decided to release it “as is”.

The cover art is a photo graciously proposed to us by American photographer Paul Hosefros (NY Times).

Thanks for listening,

Liner notes:

This album is called Swan Song. Here you will find the last chapter in the research I started with my very first album in 1993. In terms of style, Swan Song can be considered as the third and last part of a trilogy (started with The Years Alone and Segundo Ciclo in between) of solo “composer” albums where I can also show my skills as a multi-instrumentalist and arranger, and gather compositions written in different places and times, with varied styles and instrumentations.

Like the two aforementioned discs, I asked for help from some friends that I like (people with whom I played and shared stages and recording studios over the years, and a couple of new partners). These great musicians gave life to these songs and added musicality and talent to Swan Song. They managed to interpret the meaning I intend of all this: simplicity and beauty prevail over technique.
Here you’ll find simple and catchy instrumental compositions with strong, sensitive melodies, passionate and sophisticated harmonies and atmospheres, rather gentle rhythms and a variety of instruments and sounds.
In Swan Song there are tracks with odd and irregular metric, unexplained modulations, dozens of time-signature changes, erroneous dissonances, tempo shifts, etc. But hopefully it all goes unnoticed (only visible to the musicians who read the sheet music and to those who try to transcribe this music).

So it is ok if this long record seem banal and simple to some listeners. But may the sensitivity it hides reach the hearts of some. It was made with all my soul and heart, I swear
