More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need Translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!

  1. Ah… I adore Oscar. His wife is a brilliant Hair Artist, and I got to work with her on occasion.
    LOVE the Jeepo poem!!

  2. This may be an echo of a message I’ve already sent, but he is the greatest and indeed the piano master of jazz, to whom I have been listening since I first heard music of any kind. Not difficult as we are both natives of Montreal, though some years apart. He remains my all time favourite, and will to my very last breath. Thank you for sharing this reminder of his magical music abilities.
