An intimate solo set by Portuguese tenor saxophon player Rodrigo Amado, recorded at the Church of The Holy Ghost (Igreja do Espírito Santo), Caldas da Rainha (Portugal) on 4th July 2021. Amado is a key player of the current European jazz scene and has regular bandprojects with Joe McPhee, Chris Corsano, Hernani Faustino, Alexander Schlippenbach and leads his own groups Lisbon Freedom Unit
and Motion Trio.

"The lockdown meant focusing on a different kind of dialogue, a conversation with the tenor saxophone legacy and his own roots. That  focus invokes two strongly linked figures, Coleman Hawkins and Sonny Rollins, the first great explorers of solo saxophone and both profoundly involved in protest and issues of identity." - Stuart Broomer
