We have no rivers, we have no wells, we have no springs
only some cisterns, but even those are empty;
thus they echo and thus we worship them!
A torpid hollow sound, that sound of loneliness
A sound like our love, a sound like our bodies

Giorgos Seferis

Profile Information

Where are you located?
Getting lost in that hopeless little screen, otherwise in Athens, Greece.
What is your affiliation to the Jazz World?
Tell us a little about your background...
Not a musician but a jazz amateur.
To my point of view jazz is above all an attitude.
I am profoundly convinced that the stream that sprang in America (hauling all African origins) about a century ago, all along nourished by diverse currents, has widened itself to evolve to a broad universal tide.
The spirit of this tide is mainly, to my point of view, creative freedom, trans cultural hospitality, pitch modulation (a concept similar to the one introduced for color by Paul Cézanne), or interchangeability, Picasso’s red for blue statement?
One more question: how should we consider the relations of jazz with musical trends who took root in various places of the world, trends based on traditions of minority groups and growing through improvisation and fusion, such as rebetiko, rai, Balkan brass band music, kletzmer, gypsy music?
My Musical References: Louis Armstrong, Alexander’s Ragtime Band, Dinah Washington, Bessie Smith, Billie Holliday, Nat King Cole, Duke Ellington, Dizzie Gillespie, George Gershwin, Frederyk Chopin, Eric Satie, Claude Debussy, Ianis Xenakis, Keith Jarrett, Jan Garbarek, Chick Corea, Johnnie Mc Laughlin, Herbie Hancock but also: Manos Hadjidakis, Frank Zappa, Jethro Tull, Iggy Pop, Leonard Cohen, I Muvrini, Omar Faruk Tekbilek, Bratsch, MC Solar, Youssou N’Dour, Emir Kusturica, Goran Bregović, Manolis Chiotis, Greek folk clarinet, African Percussions and others.

Welcome Mano to the JAZZ Network. I met many good friends here and feel that you'll do the same. Some of your music is so serene and tranquil. There's a feel of abstract and traditional.

Mano, thanks for the comments and welcome to the circle. When I have a little more free time, I'll write more fully, though I am afraid it will have to be in English as my Greek is dreadful! I now live near Aghios Nikolaos in Crete. There's not a great deal of jazz around here, but I still take an interest, particularly in Bill Eveans & Hampton Hawes. Keep up the good work, Maurice.

The Jazz Network Worldwide is comprised of all the subsets of the industry worldwide from managers, agents, publicists, venues, festivals, radio stations, studios, musicians, vocalists, etc. and of course fans.  You can use it as a database by utilizing the tool bar for what you seek to connect and network with.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
