"Broken Blue is a mature statement from a finely attuned trio whose continuing evolution holds the promise of even greater things to come."
“Everything we love to hear is here: easy-to-remember themes, an efficient triangular flow, inspired improvisation and solos you can't get enough of. […] Melancholic here, exuberant there, on clear and dense lines, the music develops, not without skill, creating rhythmic and harmonic surprises without losing its goal: the pleasure of the listener. The trio has been around for ten years, and to say the least, they display a homogeneity that borders on telepathy. How do we say 'well done' in Greek?"
"…the history of jazz is littered with amazing trios, the list is far too long to mention however, one thing for sure, this album proves that the Spiral Trio should take their rightful place on this list. I highly recommend this album."
“Modern and forward thinking but also accessible at the same time, easy to listen to. This trio has great interplay, especially considering the adventurous approaches they take to the compositions and the free open arrangements. Fine piano playing, but Gyftakis’ outstanding bass work has an equal role in all of the melodies and in solo time, which makes their approach unique. It’s fresh sounding and will bring a lot to discover on repeated listening. This is a fabulous trio, I really find their music engaging with so much happening doing all kinds of approaches with melodic harmonic explorations. It can reveal more with each listening”
“The pithiest and most popular album of a domestic jazz group that gels at an international level”
"with the interplay between the three players taken to an other level and the energy overwhelming the listener, Manesis, Gyftakis and Gouliaris give their all on each track."
"Spiral Trio plays lively and relevant modern jazz, that absorbed the achievements of its predecessors, both Americans and Europeans, and creatively develops them."
“A light hand, melodies with space to breathe and a fullness of flow describe the natural touch that Spiral Trio has on their new CD, Broken Blue.”
“A step forward in the definition of their identity as a trio”
