I was in Lisbon for a short series with poet/author/musician Miguel Martins, an association we’ve had since 2008, exploring more poetry and music. On the free day I had I arranged to meet another old friend there, Mario Rua whom I had met through Miguel some years earlier; we had in fact recorded a duo CD in 2014 ‘Maresia’ (SLAMCD 331). We met up with Pedro Castello Lopes, whom I had briefly met at MIA Festival in 2017 and a new friend, bassist João Madeira. I slowly realised my ‘free day’ was to include this most enjoyable recording session – every take we played is on the disc – "warts and all", as they say. Hopefully there were not too many ‘warts’!    George Haslam
