    Carlo Mascolo no-input trombone 

    Hernâni Faustino double bass 

    Pó de ouro
    The compositional history of this album draws inspiration from an intentionally random selection of words taken from the book Love Poetry by Nâzım Hikmet, a Turkish poet and writer who defines poetry as “a nucleus of emotion and thought in which it is necessary to succeed in merging all aspects of your life.”

    The title Golden Powder evokes the imaginary patina that often appears at dusk, an inflection point between day and night, a simultaneously unique and special passage.

    The composed music is wholly conceived and performed in real time by the two musicians who, in addition to the skilful conducting of the improvisation, always manage to weave a common, honest, intriguing and unpredictable conversation, which never becomes a subordinate dialogue.

    The two musicians had never played together before this concert.
    Complicity and intuition, necessary ingredients for the success of each composition in real time, have covered the music featured in this album with fluidity and lightness.
