MUSICIAN Born:

The Next Step Quintet

Next Step Quintet is pianist Yiannis Papadopoulos, guitarist Thodoris Kotsifas, bassist Ntinos Manos and drummer Vassilis Podaras. The band has no leader as they all equally participate in developing their own musical language. Despite being called a quintet, the fifth band member is each time a different saxophone player among the regular collaborators of the band (T.Paterelis, T.Pennicott). The quintet met in their late teens while at Music Studies Department of the Ionian University. They immediately bonded and started collaborating on a variety of projects. Soon, joined by Orpheus Wandig Tsoukalas, embarked on working frenetically on what was later going to be their first album. In 2012 their debut self-title album The Next Step Quintet was released under the greek record label Puzzlemusik and was met with great acclaim followed by a significant number of enthusiastic reviews

Ari Hoenig's The Pauper and the Magician is arguably more the former than the latter, as these six compositions are inspired by a fable-like tale of Hoenig's design, without overt ...

Ulster Hall
