About this item

Yako Trio come from Thessaloniki, Greece and play jazz. “OdesSea” contains six original compositions that pay homage to the sea, the aimless wandering and the inescapable destiny of a traveller...nostos.

Recorded in two stages, it includes collaborations with Nicolas Masson (ECM) and James Wylie on saxophone.

It's a phenomenal feat of modern jazz which perfectly showcases the skill and dexterity of this rising group. Some of the playing and passages are nothing short of breathtaking and across the six tracks featured there isn't a note or bar that seems forced or superfluous. Real deal shit - sleep at your peril!

‘’It is a real jazz of fire that can be found in both North Greece and Africa and reflects on what we consider modern jazz today. I think Yako Trio from Thessaloniki is one of the best jazz groups in our country.’’
G. Charonitis – Athinorama, 2020
