Ξεκινάμε ένα μικρό [μπορεί και να προκύψει μεγαλύτερο] μουσικό αφιέρωμα στα ερπετά.
Τo Alligator Crawl είναι μια από τις μνημειώδεις ηχογραφήσεις του Louis Armstrong στα ’20s με τους [Hot Five και] Hot Seven.
Η μπάντα : John St. Cyr – μπάντζο, Johnny Dodds – κλαρινέτο, baby Dodds – ντραμς, Lil Armstrong – πιάνο, Kid Ory – τρομπόνι, Pete Briggs – τούμπα, L.A. – τρομπέτα.

We start a little [it could grow longer] music tribute to reptiles.
Alligator Crawl is one of the monumental Louis Armstrong recordings in the ’20s with [Hot Five and] Hot Seven.
The band : John St. Cyr – banjo, Johnny Dodds – clarinet, baby Dodds – drums, Lil Armstrong – piano, Kid Ory – trombone, Pete Briggs – tuba, L.A. – trumpet.


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music!

* 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!
