20 musicians from Greece and abroad, 5 ensembles and 3 nights of explosive jazz - The 7th Jazz Panorama on December 7 to 9, 2017 at Onassis Cultural Centre  — 107-109 Syngrou Avenue  - Athens - 2109005800 — www.sgt.gr - A three-day festival dedicated to the contemporary Greek jazz and improvisation scene.  4-6 DEC 2015 - 21:00 - Upper Stage -

Wide-ranging styles, original compositions, fresh collaborations and virtuoso solos—that's what the 7th Greek Jazz Panorama is all about. The five featured combos capture the dynamism and creativity of today's jazz scene in the best possible way.

Four outstanding percussionists get proceedings underway. Then, before the Nana Simopoulos Quintet brings the curtain down on this year’s event, we will be treated to avant-garde improvisations, echoes of Coltrane, and that side of the mainstream which experiments with and fuses disparate musical elements.
