Still working on that hot first release.



The Spiros Exaras World-Jazz Ensemble is a six piece band which blends jazz with the exotic rhythms, melodies and instruments of Greece. The "Greek-jazz" band consists of some of the world's renowned musicians such as pianist Hery Hey, bassist Matt Garrison, drummer Gene Lake, percussionist vocalist Arto Tuncboyaciyan and clarinetist Lefteris Bournias.

Under the direction of guitarist Spiros Exaras the band has created "Phrygianics", a rich mixture of syncopated rhythms, jazz melodies and unique arrangements, all come together to make the hypnotic groove of this CD.

"Phrygianics" has been released world wide with the legendary Blue Note Records (2003) and got the attention of a lot of radio producers and festivals. "This album succeeds in achieving that special blend from modern to traditional, playful to somber and Eastern to Western,that so many musicians in the past have failed at", as Joshua Kline wrote in his "Jazz Review" magazine review.
