Petros Klampanis, just before his performance at Jazzahead Festival, returns to Zig Zag Jazz Club for a unique concert feat. Kristjan Randalu and Bodek Janke.
Named a “Bass Ace" by Bass Player Magazine, Petros Klampanis grew up in Greece, surrounded by the confluence of Mediterranean and Balkan folk music. Now based in NYC, the bassist and composer is curious in his approach, always seeking unique ways to integrate elements from multiple genres, ranging from classical music to pop. Klampanis' varied musical life journey brings “aggressive melodicism, beautiful intonation, and uniquely personal string writing,” as noted by fellow bassist Drew Gress. His second album as a leader, Minor Dispute was selected as one of the best jazz records in 2015 by NPR. His most recent release and Motéma Music debut, Chroma was featured in major international radio and press outlets including FIP, TSF, Jazz Magazine, WBGO, JazzTimes and DownBeat Magazine (among the best albums of 2017).
