A few words about the musicians

The Greek double bassist Grigoris Theodoridis was seriously involved in music from an early age and already in his teenage years he decided to immerse himself in jazz and improvisational music. At the age of 17 he moved to Athens and studied jazz and classical double bass. He then moved to the Netherlands to study jazz performance at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. Since 2017 he has traveled and played music all over the world, at festivals in Europe as well as at jazz venues in New York, Tokyo, Shanghai, London, Copenhagen and elsewhere. He has been a student of the legendary double bassist Ron Carter, as well as Orlando le Fleming among others and has attended seminars by Larry Grenadier, Joe Martin, Brad Mehldau, Jeff Ballard, Enrico Pieranunzi, Mark Guiliana, John Patitucci, Vijay Iyer, David Liebman, etc. Since 2021 he lives in Athens where he has established himself in the Greek Jazz scene. In March 2023 he released his first personal album entitled Green Of Silence. He is accompanied by drummer Attila Gyárfás and Orestis Petrakis on piano.

Attila Gyárfás is a Hungarian drummer and composer primarily focusing on free improvisation and on researching the tonal possibilities of the drum set. He has appeared on over 20 records and has performed at a great number of major venues and festivals with artists including Magic Malik, Alexander von Schlippenbach, Ralph Alessi, and Seijiro Murayama. As a leader he has released three records (Cloud Factory in 2018, Randomity in 2020, and Minimal Distance in 2022). He is a co-founder of the groups Quelquefois and Identified Flying Object and is a member of the experimental folk jazz band named Kovász. He has started an electroacoustic duo project with composer Bálint Bolcsó and he regularly performs in duo with pianist Gabriel Zucker. He teaches jazz drums at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music from 2020. Attila is a proud endorser of Dream Cymbals and Gongs since 2016.

The Cypriot jazz pianist Christos Yerolatsitis was trained in the post-bop tradition for which he has a deep appreciation, and which remains a big part of his musical persona. His proficiency and personal style in the genre haven’t gone unnoticed by both his peers and listeners alike, and have led him to work and record with numerous musicians and projects around the world. Christos was formally trained in The Netherlands where he received a BA degree in Jazz Performance from The Royal Conservatory of The Hague (2013) and an MA degree from Conservatorium van Amsterdam (2015). He has collaborated with artists such as Erik Truffaz, Gilad Atzmon, Benjamin Herman, Simon Righter, Eef van Breen, Ranjit Barot, Sabir Khan, John Marshall, Masa Kamaguchi, Horacio Fumero, Amos Hoffman and more.
