The Night Before

In his new album Hthes to Vradi (The Night Before), Dimitris Kalantzis re-interprets some classic Greek songs of Yiannidis, Kapnisis, Souyioul, Spartakos, Mouzakis, Morakis, Yakovlev and Theofanidis.

Dimitris is leading a big band (27 musicians if I count correctly) with 3 lead female singers (Athina Routsi, Pinelopi Tzanetaki, Terry Vakirtzopoulou) plus 2 guests (Aleka Kanellidou, Elli Paspala). The music is a nice mix of smooth jazz, mambo, bossa-jazz, bolero, swing.

Pote Min Kles (Never Cry), a song of Takis Morakis (music) and Kostas Kofiniotis (lyrics) first recorded in 1955, here sang by Pinelopi Tzanetaki.

Let’s also remember that there is another recording of this song with Dimitris Kalantzis on the piano. It was back in 2013 when Dimitris was playing in Priamos Morakis album The Athenian Project (2013). Pinelopi Tzanetaki was singing this version too.
