Pandelis Karayorgis Trio: Cocoon

Read "Cocoon" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Può un classico piano-trio--nel quale viene rispettata la canonica suddivisione dei ruoli (il contrabbasso fa il contrabbasso, la batteria suona come una batteria), dove trova posto l'usuale successione di assoli e l'altrettanto usuale alternanza tra brani lenti e brani veloci, dove le composizioni sono basate quasi interamente sul blues, il più classico dei generi musicali americani--sembrare ...

Pandelis Karayorgis: System of 5

Read "System of 5" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

One of the most enduring qualities possessed by pianist Pandelis Karayorgis is his startling intellect, as well as the grace with which he announces his arrival.

Charlie Kohlhase's Explorer's Club: Adventures
