The Portuguese trumpet player Pedro Jerónimo is a promising young jazz musician. Born in 1997, he has been a disciple, among others, of Abe Rábade, Susana Santos Silva, Peter Evans and Chris Cheek. As a performer, he has been part of the famous Orquestra Jazz Matosinhos, where he recorded an album with Rebecca Martin and Larry Grenadier. Recognized as a composer and instrumentalist with several awards, Jerónimo is about to record his first solo work, with the Catalan label CRU Records. Before that, he will stop at the Jamboree, where we will discover music that “captures and elevates,” he says, with “melodies that seek from free jazz – he adds – to demonstrate that every limit is an opportunity.” Ambrose Akinmusire is one of Pedro Jerónimo’s references. His compositions, he assures, “break through storm clouds as much as they explode and illuminate.”
