Sokratis Sinopoulos Quartet - Eight Winds mp3 album

Four years after the critically lauded Eight Winds the Athens-based Sokratis Sinopolous Quartet returns with the aptly-named Metamodal. A unique band, the quartet subtly sifts a vast pool of influence, its music informed by the players’ experience of folk forms, Byzantine and classical music, and many modes of improvising, including jazz. The combination of Sinopoulos’s lyra, with its yearning, ancient tones, and the sensitive, modern piano of Yann Keerim is particularly beguiling, and the group as a whole has made giant steps since its debut. The album title has open-ended significance for Sinopoulos. Metamodal could be interpreted as post-modal but Sokratis reminds us that the Greek root meta also translates as among, between, behind and in the midst of and carries the idea of changed and altered as well. I’m interested in all the meanings that can be implied by Metamodal.

Sokratis Sinopoulos Quartet Eight Winds. Sokratis Sinopoulos: lyra Yann Keerim: piano Dimitris Tsekouras: bass Dimitris Emanouil: drums. Thus there is a music that is neither a fusion of ethnic and jazz, nor a jazzizzazione of traditional themes, but something very, very original. Neri Pollastri, allaboutjazz. Born in Athens in 1974, Sokratis Sinopoulos studied classical guitar, Byzantine music and folk song before taking up the lyra at age 14. Within a year he was playing with mentor Ross Daly’s group, and over the last two decades has collaborated with composers, musicians and singers from Greece and abroad. Eight Winds, the debut album of the quartet and Sokratis’s leader debut for ECM, was produced by Manfred Eicher at Sierra Studios in Athens in April 2014.
