…Ξεκινάμε το “βασιλικό” αφιέρωμα με το ιδιαίτερα αγαπημένο μου Τζεθροταλικό κομματάκι των Focus από το άλμπουμ τους Focus 3. Το κομμάτι, αν και για φλάουτο [“σολίστ” ο οργανίστας – φλαουτίστας Thijs Van Leer] είναι σύνθεση του κιθαρίστα Jan Akkerman, ο οποίος πραγματοποιεί μια “δραματική” παρέμβαση.
Φωτό ανοίγματος : το σπίτι του Κωνσταντίνου στο Λονδίνο, το οποίο πουλήθηκε πρόσφατα για 6 εκ. λίρες.

… We begin the “royal” tribute with my especially favorite Jethro Tull – like Focus track from their album Focus 3. The track although written for flute [soloist here is the organist – flutist Thijs Van Leer] is credited to guitarist Jan Akkerman, who performs a “dramatic” intervention.

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!
