Θυμάμαι την ευφορία που μου είχε πρόσφερε, οκτώ χρόνια πριν, η δουλειά του jazz πιανίστα – ενορχηστρωτή Δημήτρη Καλαντζή και του κουιντέτου του πάνω στη μουσική του Μίκη Θεοδωράκη. Kαι ακόμα περισσότερο, πριν από αυτήν, οι Χατζιδακικές του[ς] εντρυφήσεις.

Η μπάντα :
Δημήτρης Καλαντζής
πιάνο, ενορχηστρώσεις
Τάκης Πατερέλης
Ανδρέας Πολυζωγόπουλος
Αλέξανδρος-Δράκος Κτιστάκης
Γιώργος Γεωργιάδης

Eight years have passed and I still remember the euphoria streaming from this work by the jazz pianist – arranger Dimitris Kalantzis and his quintet, based on Theodorakis’ music. Even more fascinating was his interperetation of Hadjidakis’ music, before that.

The band :
Dimitris Kalantzis
piano, arrangements
Takis Paterelis
Andreas Polyzogoulos
Alexandros-Draco Ktistakis
George Georgiadis bass

* 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!
