“Καλλιτεχικών προδιαγραφών” χαλάρωση, με κομμάτια από το άλμπουμ των Danilo Perez & Claus Ogerman.
Έχω παρακολουθήσει τον σπουδαίο Παναμέζο πιανίστα [συν. με Paquito D’ Rivera, Lee Konitz, Charlie Haden, Joe Lovano, Gary Burton κ.ά.] ζωντανά, με τους Wayne Shorter, John Patitucci, Brian Blade – σε ένα καθηλωτικό μουσικό γεγονός, συναυλιακή εμπειρία ζωής.
Ο Γερμανός ενορχηστρωτής και συνθέτης απ’ την άλλη, υπήρξε εξέχουσα φυσιογνωμία του “Third stream” [είδους που γεφυρώνει την κλασική με την jazz].
Το φάσμα των συνεργασιών του περιλαμβάνει καλλιτέχνες όπως οι A. C. Jobim, F. Sinatra [ενορχηστρωτής του πρώτου τους άλμπουμ], o Bill Evans και ο κλασικός βιολιστής Gidon Kremer.

“Artistry and relaxation”, with tracks from Danilo Perez & Claus Ogerman‘s album.
I’ve watched the great Panamanian pianist [collab w. Paquito D’Rivera, Lee Konitz, Charlie Haden, Joe Lovano, Gary Burton etc] with Wayne Shorter, John Patitucci, Brian Blade] in an unforgettable live experience.
The German arranger and composer, on the other hand, was a prominent figure of “Third stream” [a genre that bridges classical with jazz].
His range of collaborations includes artists such as A. C. Jobim, F. Sinatra [orchestrator of their first album together], Bill Evans and the classic violinist Gidon Kremer.

* 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!
