A modern jazz piano trio based in Athens, Greece. Working together for almost a decade, Spiral Trio have performed in festivals and clubs throughout Greece and Europe,and published two albums, the most recent being "Broken Blue" by Odradek Records.
Broken Blue is a modern jazz album. We understand modern jazz as an approach to jazz improvisation characterised by abstraction, lack of figuration, asymmetry, dominance of the subjective element in the management of musical images and constant and intense interaction between the soloist and the accompanying musicians. We could also say something that many musicians describe somewhat more generally, that modern jazz is an approach that seeks more and more freedom in the management of all the musical materials that jazz improvisation deals with, namely: melody, harmony, rhythm, phrasing, modes of narration and form.
Broken Blue is an exploration of different episodes, different possibilities or versions of such an approach. Each episode is an original composition, written to tell a unique story, to create a distinct musical place.
