After a first successful collaboration at KET last October, Kostis Christodoulou (piano), Grigoris Theodoridis (double bass) and Stephanos Chytiris (drums) present Slam Poems, a brand new improvisational jazz trio. Their music embraces a wide range of influences, from free jazz to Ravel’s impressionism or Borah Bergman’s “piano meditations” and silences.

▨ Born in 1983, pianist Kostis Christodoulou received jazz piano lessons from Stavros Lantsias. As a student of the Department of Music Studies of the Ionian University, he attended lessons with George Kontrafouris, Dimitris Kalantzis and Demos Dimitriadis. He continued his studies in Helsinki, Finland, at the Jazz Department of the Sibelius Academy (2007-2008). Since September 2008, he lives and works in Athens.
