BandJazzWorld

The music is a mixture of greek traditional music and jazz and fusion music. We play mostly our own compotitions based on odd time rythms, enriched with modern jazz and fusion harmonies. We have also in our programm some greek traditonal songs played in a new more jazzy way with piano bass and drums

Biography

The band was formed in1991. in the begining it was "blue train". the purpose was to explore the jazz standard idiom. after years of playing and a cd recording with american guitarist Wayne Brasel, ("Sky Paths") from 2000 they change the name to Apopsis Trio and change also direction. Now the style of the band is more based and ifluenced from the greek traditional music (especiall from the odd time rythms), enriched with a bit more complex harmony from the jazz and fusion music. The first recording in this style is on the cd "Epiroes" in 2005 and this summer they are going to finish their second cd in the same direction.
