Telling Stories

Giorgos Kontrafouris Piano Trio with Terry Vakirtzoglou

May 21, 2014 at Le Poisson Rouge

Pioneer of the Greek jazz scene Giorgos Kontrafouris in his piano trio is joined by the remarkably talented up-and-comer Terry Vakirtzoglou for the unique performance “Telling Stories.” Kontrafouris will lead two formidable musicians—Petros Klampanis, bass, and George Kosteletos, drums—to present new arrangements by classical jazz and contemporary Greek composers. In their signature improvisational style, the band will explore the stories hiding behind the lyrics to rediscover and reinterpret tradition.
