The Spiral Trio is made up of Greek musicians Spyros Manesis (piano), Arionas Gyftakis (double bass) and Anastasis Gouliaris (drums), all three of whom have contributed to the composition and improvisation of the unique and colourful music on “Broken Blue”.
“Broken Blue” is the fruit of a long creative journey: the distillation of the Trio’s collaborative processes. The sound of the album is often bright, full of dialogue and playfulness; at other times sombre, with darker overtones. There are moments ranging from nostalgia to effervescence to sweetness. Throughout, the music reflects the inner worlds of each musician and the way this interacts with the other members of the Trio, creating a spontaneous and compelling listening experience.
