Born in Poland to Greek parents, Apostolis Anthimos is one of the the country’s most interesting instrumentalists to bridge the gap between the aesthetics of jazz and fusion. Although his first steps into music were made with the help of a guitar, ‘Lakis’ is an equally captivating drummer and keyboard player. Since 1971 he has been the member of SBB, one of Poland’s leading progressive rock groups.

He played also in the early 70s with Niemen, very famous Polish avant-garde musician. The 1980s saw the beginning of his co-operation with Tomasz Stanko, both on stage and in the studio („C.O.C.X.”, „Lady Go”, „Chameleon”).

During the years spent in Greece Anthimos was a much sought-after side musician, travelling around the globe as George Dalaras drummer. In 1994 his debut solo album „Days We Can’t Forget” was finally released (guest musicians included Gil Goldstein, Matthew Garrison, Paul Wertico, Jim Beard and Sugar Blue). Anthimos was also in charge of the band Theatro, but for more than a decade now he has performed with his own trio (assisted by Gary Husband and Etienne Mbappe). He remains a regular recording and performing artist.

Apostolis’s gigs mingle the finesse and sophistication of jazz with the energy of fusion, covering his solocompositions. “Apostolis Anthimos Parallel Worlds” is a new pr oject which blends the rock & blues sound of his guitar with the rock-jazz ambient of his drums.

This unique quartet is just perfect: very cosy and refined, however with the pulsating groove and energy. Music for the real connoisseur as well novices who start listening to jazz.
