Album Description

“Nikos Chatzitsakos Tiny Big Band” was formed in 2018. In that project, Nikos arranges Jazz Standards for a unique instrumentation of six horns and piano trio plus some guest appearances on vocals, guitar, and vibraphone. Although this instrumentation is rarely seen in our days it was common in the heyday of swing music, before the appearance of big bands. Similar to a film director that brings the plot and characters of an old script to our modern world, Nikos connects the tradition of jazz music and its repertoire with post-bop modern aesthetics and harmonic soundscapes.
