Doravante is Abe Rábade´s new album, his number 12 as a band leader. It is conformed by five original compositions, two versions of Galician traditional music, two jazz standards, a Cuban music classic and the harmonized transcription of a spoken speech.
Abe Rábade founded his first acoustic trio in Boston in 1996. Ever since, he explores the expressive possibilities of this format. Nowadays, after ten years playing with Pablo Martín Caminero and Bruno Pedroso, the trio practises a rich eclecticism where the following aspects can be found: the footprint of the popular music from Galiza, the jazz tradition, the R&B flavor, risky rhythmic and conceptual experimentation, the influence of the classical, flamenco and Afrocuban traditions and always a generous path for the Unexpected in every concert or recording. The groups´s discogrpahy assembles titles such as “Babel de Sons”, “Simetrías”, “Playing on Light”, “Zigurat”, “A Modo”, “Versons”, “Tránsitos” (Trio & Shymphony Orchestra) “Once” and the present “Doravante”. Abe Rábade performed in countries such as the USA, China, Morocco, Germany, Portugal, France, Brazil, Costa Rica, Chile, Mexico, Guatemala or El Salvador.
