About the program
Tomás Marques Quartet is a band formed by its saxophonist and namesake. Tomás brought together a group of friends, all students at the Escola Superior de Música de Lisboa, to create a new quartet for the Young Musicians Award. With Tomás Marques on saxophone, Samuel Gapp on piano, Rodrigo Correia on double bass and Diogo Alexandre on drums, they have played with the biggest names in Portuguese jazz, firmly cementing themselves as new names in Portugal’s jazz scene.
Based on a modern jazz full of influences, they play compositions created by the saxophonist.
