Apostolis Anthimos Quartet
Apostolis Anthimos (born in Poland to Greek parent) is one the country’s most interesting instrumentalists to bridge the gap between the aesthetics of jazz and fusion. Although his first steps into music were made with the help of a guitar, ‘Lakis’ is an equally captivating drummer and keyboard player. Since 1971 he has been the member of SBB, one of Poland’s leading
progressive rock groups. He played also in the early 70s with Niemen, very famous Polish avant-garde musician. The 1980s saw the beginning of his co-operation with Tomasz Stanko, both on stage and in the studio („C.O.C.X.”, „Lady Go”, „Chameleon”).
During the years spent in Greece Anthimos was a much sought-after side musician, travelling around the globe as
George Dalaras drummer. In 1994 his debut solo album „Days We Can’t Forget” was finally released
(guest musicians included Gil Goldstein, Matthew Garrison, Paul Wertico, Jim Beard and Sugar Blue).
Anthimos was also in charge of the band Theatro, but for more than a decade now he has performed with his own trio
(assisted by Gary Husband and Etienne Mbappe). He remains a regular recording and performing artist.
“Apostolis Anthimos Quintet” is a new project in which the blues guitar sound of Apostolis is intertwined with the rock-jazz atmosphere of his drums. This extraordinary quartet is excellent music: moody and refined, but with pulsing groove and energy. In a word – Music by large “M”. For connoisseurs and novices.
