Δείγματα της κλάσης του μπασίστα – συνθέτη είναι μερικές από τις πρώιμες συνεργασίες του: Tony Williams, Joe Henderson [ως έφηβος] Stan Getz, Gerry Mulligan, Fred Hersch, Freddy Hubbard …νομίζω ότι αρκούν. Ακούμε δύο κομμάτια από το έξοχο άλμπουμ που ο Michael Formanek ηχογράφησε το 2010 με τους Graig Taborn – πιάνο, Tim Berne – άλτο σαξόφωνο, Gerald Cleaver – drums.

Tokens of the bassist – composer’s class are some of his early collaborations: Tony Williams, Joe Henderson [in his teens] Stan Getz, Gerry Mulligan, Fred Hersch, Freddy Hubbard …I think these will do. We hear two pieces from the splendid album Michael Formanek recorded in 2010, with Graig Taborn – piano, Tim Berne – alto saxophone, Gerald Cleaver – drums.

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, 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 sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!

  1. Excellent piece. I like how it moves through interesting tonalities, dissonances into the more sonically smooth ending.

Happy to hear your thoughts
