The Next Step Quintet

This is the first CD of the Band.

The Next Step Quintet  was created in the fall of 2011 by five young and talented musicians: Orfeas Tsoukalas, Thodoris Kotsyfas, Giannis Papadopoulos, Ntinos Manos and Vasilis Podaras. They met as students at the Music Department of the Ionian University where they participated in a variety of projects. In Athens they met by chance with the Greco-origin Orpheus Tsoukalas  and realized that the five had a common vision of music. Five young musicians with an average age of 25 years - which is unusual for the musical idiom serving and the country in which they live and act - sign an album imaginative, direct, technically. An album that sounds comfortably prototype.The album includes 9  modern jazz compositions. The quintet attempts to express its own take on contemporary jazz music through original compositions.  

The whole album stands at a very high level. This just proves what we hope is now obvious: the level of jazz in Greece is at the level of international standards.
