“Perspectrum” is the 39th release of JACC Records and it sprang from the recording of a concert at Convento de S. Francisco, during the Jazz ao Centro Festival 2016. “A work of sonic bricolage [...], full of spaces and dynamic, taking advantage of the reverberation of the church and the way in which the architecture of the place sculpts the timbres. ” as said by Rui Eduardo Paes in the Jazz.pt Report, it is a brilliant work by the trio Antunes, Fernández and Turner.
