Loukas Hadellis has not received any gifts yet
"Prespes" is an electric jazz blend album, sometimes dense, occasionally atmospheric, icy, emotive, with understated hellenic ethnic elements. Allos Topos, Busy, Prespes, Samba, Ties and View tracks are composed by Loukas Hadellis while Bittersweet Road track is composed by Nadia who designed cover ArtWork.
The quartet consists of :
Loukas Hadellis (electric guitar, guitar synth)
Yiotis Kiourtsoglou (electric bass)
Nikos Kalantzakos (piano, keyboards)
Stefanos Dimitriou (drums).
The "Prespes" album was recorded live by Michalis Nikoloudis at Aiolia Studios Athens Greece, audio processed & mixed by Loukas Hadellis and carefully mastered by Simon Smart at Fifth Ave Audio Mastering NYC.
Prespes are two lakes in northern Greece border shared with two neighboring countries. They form a biotope.
I am thankful to Yiotis, Nikos and Stefanos for their great playing, beautiful ideas and overall contribution. Also thank my friends John Mourjopoulos and Lefteris Flegas for useful discussions, ideas and advises during audio mix.
"Prespes" is dedicated to Nadia.
