The Brazilian music tradition meets Greek Jazz
Petros Klampanis invites the outstanding Greek musicians, Spyros Manesis, Andreas Polyzogopoulos and the amazing Brazilian cellist and arranger Jaques Morelenbaum to participate in a unique musical gathering entitled “Jazz in Action”. This concert will showcase compositions of Petros Klampanis coming from his latest album “Minor Dispute” as well as musical scores of the other band members. The Brazilian musical tradition will be meeting modern Greek Jazz, as represented by these top three performers.
Jaques Morelenbaum is one of the most important artists of the contemporary Brazilian Jazz scene and is one of the few Brazilians who collaborates with the biggest names of international Jazz. With a continuous presence in the Antonio Carlos Jobim band from the ‘60s up until today (where he has teamed up with the top Italian trumpet player Paolo Freso), his musical creations are inspired by both Brazilian music as well as modern Jazz. Morelenbaum will be taking us with his Cello on a musical journey blending both musical styles and will be accompanied by the leading musicians of the modern Greek Jazz scene.
Morning Bound trio
Based in NYC, Morning Bound brings together vocalist Tammy Scheffer, vocalist/ bassist Panagiotis Andreou and drummer Ronen Itzik. The trio creates a playful blend of electronic music, pop and rock while keeping a fluid, improvisation based performance inspired by jazz and world music. Loops and effects are employed on both the vocals and bass for an updated sound that combines old and new, familiar and experimental.
Costas Baltazanis trio
The excellent guitarist and composer Costas Baltazanis will be presenting a series of his compositions from his latest album “End of Seas” together with his band coming from New York where they have been living and performing over the last 4 years. This particularly imaginative musician has many collaborations in his track record. They include teaming up with Jeff Tain Watts and Alex Foster. Costas has performed concerts all over the world.
Petros Klampanis has the artistic direction of the event. Petros is a bassist and composer who is also distinguished on the other side of the Atlantic, in New York.
