Drummer and composer Billy Prim will play a set comprised of tunes from his album ‘Ivora’, released in 2023.
Ivora, Prim’s sophomore release, is a concept album, reflecting upon and exploring the the inner world found within all of us, through the story of a hero who begins a voyage without a fixed destination in the ocean of his consciousness. The album takes the listener on a journey of self discovery, willpower and devotion to ultimately reach a place of one’s truthful inner self in the final song ‘The Breath of All Things’.
Through his own musical and personal experiences, Prim explores his own understanding of spirituality and the result is a natural sound with free improvisation, strong melodic lines and elements of other genres that bring out a profound heart and soul to draw in and holding the listener’s attention until the end.

21:00 Grigoris Theodoridis Trio

Double bassist and composer Grigoris Theodoridis introduces us to his trio and “travels” us through his numerous journeys with his debut album Green of Silence.
The jazz scene of New York and Tokyo weave the web on which the expressiveness of the sounds of Latin America and the mysterious charm of the Far East finds its place.
Various musical experiences are reflected in bold improvisations that give breath to silence, ground to melody, space to noise.
The Grigoris Theodoridis Trio with knowledge and spontaneity, improvisational freedom and inspiration leads us on a musical journey with attractive influences from different parts of the world.

21:00 Poesis Quartet

Poesis Quartet use the sound of Paris in the roaring twenties as a bridge between many disparate styles: Artie Shaw and Sidney Bechet meet Petroloukas Chalkias with dashes of Schoenberg and Trane.
In their live performances, Poesis move from compositions by Nino Rota, Django Reinhardt and Sidney Bechet to classics by Marlene Dietrich, while including their own original compositions which are in the same vein.
For the sensational finale of the 14th Jazz on Tinos Festival, Poesis will roll out a set that will appeal to all generations of music addicts.
