Markos Tomaras: Too Much Too Late

Markos Tomaras: Too Much Too Late

Markos Tomaras is a bassist and arranger from Greece who now calls Chicago his home. Just when you think that you have heard it all another world influence meets jazz and produces another interesting hybrid.

On this recording Markos gives us a bevy of original tunes and redefines two of the most over played jazz standards, "Stella By Starlight" and "Invitation," through his use of instrumentation, space, ensemble writing and counterpoint. Particularly interesting is the use of the kaval—a flute like instrument with much more range—somewhat reminiscent of Roland Kirk.

On paper this is just another three-horn line (trumpet, alto and tenor) with a rhythm section, vibes and strings. But the approach is different, very unique and engaging. The musicians here represent the many European, Greek and Middle East musicians that have become serious innovators—yet; the jazz world has never heard their name!

This recording will help Markos expand his reputation as a bassist, composer and arranger. It is very listenable, lyrical and gives us a music lesson of sorts with every play. Seek this one out!—MV
