Jazz Chronicles: George Kontrafouris - Ten years Baby Trio | 02/09/2018 | 21.00 | SNFCC
In September, Jazz Chronicles – SNFCC’s concert series – welcomes a music trio led by the acclaimed Greek jazz pianist George Kontrafouris, whose group, Baby Trio, has been testament to the value of artistic renewal and youthful creativity.
Formed in 2008 to capture the pure energy and youthful enthusiasm of young musicians starting out in a band, as well to serve as a school for young musicians, Baby Trio has gone through many incarnations. When they turn 25, Baby Trio members give their places to new members. In the current trio edition, Kontrafouris plays Hammond organ, accompanied by a young guitarist and a young drummer.
This year, Baby Trio is celebrating its tenth anniversary by giving a concert at SNFCC and releasing an album on vinyl and CD in late 2018.
This concert features Baby Trio’s current members, as well as many of the group’s former members:
George Kontrafouris, Hammond organ
Kostis Fanaras, guitar
Hector Remsak, drums
Konstantinos Stouraitis, guitar
Alexander Vichos, guitar
Yannis Papadoulis, drums
Vasilis Podaras, drums
Vangelis Kotzabassis, drums
Dimitra Kokkinopoulou, guest vocals
