Review: hauntingly sweeping and ambitious arrangements in this live performance that combines elements of jazz, Greek, Middle Eastern, & classical music. World DJs take note. Klampanis plays bass, and his group is very versatile, with two percussionists, stellar piano, a creative guitarist, and a string section, which are incorporated as an additional instrument, Throw away your jazz playbook.
