Greek sax and clarinet player Floros Floridis comes up with a new CD on ANO KATO, accompanied by ex-Yugoslavia´s most famous musicians Milos Petrovic on piano and Velco Nicolic or Papa Nick on percussions and voice.

As George Charonitis wrote (Jazz Magazine): “The music on this CD speaks an international dialect and addresses the listener in the same international manner, with songwriting and dance forms that cover a wide range. It is at the very point where contemporary jazz originates from the best qualities that spring from the body of popular music. … Petrovic´s piano is narrative, tracing its base from the entire jazz heritage. Papa Nick´s percussion also carries a long tradition with it. As for Floros Floridis, he creates a different story with every instrument: He captures a historical flexibility on the clarinet, he retains the maximum jazz inventiveness on the soprano sax, his bass clarinet playing is particularly sensitive. Every piece leaves a sense of fulfilment behind…

Listen to ´May´, feel the moving and proud voices of the instruments on ´Oh, my life´, try to catch the rhythms in ´Moving wagon´, and you will understand why this edge of the world, the Balkans, never stop growing free spirits and sensitive people.
