“TRINCA DE ASES” is a new project from the 3 Brazilian superstars Gal Costa, Gilberto Gil & Nando Reis. They take their name from Gil’s song “Trinca de Ases” whose name was also given to the trio’s debut concert in São Paulo (4th & 5th of August 2017), which later took them Rio and later travelled through the rest of Brazil.
“Three musketeers, three accomplices, three singing poets” as described in the song’s lyrics, together celebrate their personal stories, how their paths crossed, and what has flourished from this collaboration.
The first reunion took place in Brazil last year during a tribute, hosted by journalist Jorge Bastos Moreno, to celebrate a century since the birth of Ulises Guimarães, the Brazilian politician who fought against the military dictatorship. During that special evening, with hardly any rehearsals, the magnitude of their association was forged: the guitars spoke, Gal's voice caressed Gil's songs and revealed unknown nuances of Nando's exquisite pop songs that had never been performed live before. This powerful union is now enhanced and magnified in this live double disc. The three members are on the stage for the whole performance using all possible vocal combinations such as trios, duets and solos.
The audacity of three musketeers, the gentleness of three accomplices, the greatness of the three poets, the trio of aces that finally wins the hand.
TRINCA DE ASES is a double disc album recorded live in São Paulo during November 2017. Available in double CD (digipack) and all digital platforms.
