How is it possible to play modal jazz and yet seem to be speaking in Eastern tongues? There’s only one answer to this question and the fundamental contradiction it contains: the music of the Harris Lambrakis Quartet.

For the third and last night of the Panorama, Harris Lambrakis on ney, Nikos Sidirokastritis on drums, Dimitris Theocharis on piano and Dimitris Tsekouras on double bass will join forces with the incredibly talented Andrea Romani, the up and coming Italian flautist who now lives in Greece.

The musicians in the Harris Lambrakis Quartet have notable solo careers in common, as well as shared musical roots in the modal jazz of the Sixties and Seventies, improvisation, and the traditional music of the Eastern Mediterranean.

Their debt to John Coltrane, Bill Evans and Western harmonies, rhythms and melodies is obvious, but the combo’s unique strength lies in its ability to sound like the most contemporary group on the Greek jazz scene while fusing disparate elements, roots and influences into a compact, new, creative sound which refuses to reveal its component parts.

In short, their music is a testament to the concept of pure creativity.
