Δεν φταις εσύ αν καταφεύγεις σε μεγαλοστομίες για ένα έργο που, θέλοντας να είναι ένα ατμοσφαιρικό soundtrack, καταλήγει ένα αυτόνομο έργο τέχνης. Φταίει ο Isaac Hayes που το έκανε τόσο τέλειο. Επανανακαλύπτοντας μετά από χρόνια το μεγαλείο του Shaft.

It’s not your fault if you resort to grandiose words about a piece of music meant for an atmospheric soundtrack, which ends up being a standalone work of art. It’s Isaac Hayes’ fault for making it so perfect. Rediscovering after years the greatness of Shaft.


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!
