“Is this man the best kept secret in Jazz Music?” – iBass Magazine
An immigrant from Greece and diverse world traveler, bassist and composer Petros Klampanis brings the rich palette of his life experience to National Sawdust celebrating the release of his new album ‘CHROMA.’ On ‘CHROMA’, his third album as a leader and Motéma Music debut, Klampanis melds the composer’s jazz quintet (piano, bass, drums, guitar and percussion) with a complement of lush, classically-arranged strings to create a near symphonic work of modern jazz.
Also the Greek word for “color”, ‘CHROMA’ is an exploration of the colors of human character, inspired by world events and personal experience. Expect a full spectrum of sonic colors that is both introspective and incredibly daring.
