The ancient Indo-European civilization of Thrace was adventurous, inquisitive and open to exchange with other cultures. These key principles of the Thracians serve as a beautiful metaphor for this ensemble featuring cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras. From the captivating percussion of the Chemirani brothers (who grew up alongside Queyras on the hillsides of Provence) to the magical lyra of Sokratis Sinopoulos, these Sunday morning sessions open gateways into undiscovered musical worlds.

After two millennia under the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires, not to mention musical invasions from the West, what remains of Greece’s early musical heritage? What can be called “Greek”? Although the origins of musical genres and systems identified with the country are often confused, misunderstood, and mislabeled, this 1970 collection provides fourteen vivid examples of vocal and instrumental music from mountain and island regions that have maintained the closest ties to ancient tradition.

This is the very first project of an ex-member ONE SHOT. The band is led by drummer Daniel Jeand'Heur. The music itself, while firmly connected to the classic One Shot sound (a heavy bass, explosive drums, Fender Rhodes, long tracks), also features a horn section.
The result, as you may expect from such a band, is a bridge between the most electric jazz-rock bands and prog. But the real sensation here is the inclusion of occasional vocals that add a modern urban vibe to the whole thing - and that fits perfectly. That guy (whose stage name is "Onan") reminds quite a bit some of George Duke's vocals while with FZ's Mothers of Inventions.

Presented in a stylish 4-CD box set, here is a comprehensive recording of one of the most enigmatic manuscripts in the history of European music, preserved in the museum at the Château de Chantilly, France. ‘Anything that can be sung, can be written in music notation,’ claimed an anonymous treatise on notation in the late fourteenth century. The harmonies thus ‘captured’ on parchment represent an apex in Western music, associated with the wealthiest courts in Christendom, called ‘decadent’ by some.

The Athens-born Sinopoulos has played a key role in the revival of interest in the lyra in Greece, both in traditional music contexts and in the shaping of new music. Sinopoulos' reflective compositions and yearning ballads on Eight Winds cede the central melodic role to the lyra, sensitively supported by the piano of Yann Keerim and the subtle bass and drums of Dimitris Tsekouras and Dimitris Emanouil. Eight Winds, the debut album of the quartet and Sokratis’s leader debut for ECM, was produced by Manfred Eicher at Sierra Studios in Athens in April 2014.
