Expanded Matrix gets a rave review in "Jazz in Europe"


"Expanded Matrix" gets a rave review by Jazz columnist and critic Sammy Stein in the prestigious "Jazz in Europe " online publication!

New Album: Expanded Matrix


"Expanded Matrix " represents our latest release with Phos Duo. 

It is a digital release on CD Baby & Loudr.  The music is very stylistically varied, with influences ranging from Contemporary Classical to Blues to Latin to high-energy straight-ahead jazz, but none of the pieces are actually in those genres only influenced by them.

Antonis Ladopoulos: Thoughts on Practicing Jazz

This is an article I wrote on practicing for jazz musicians. It encompasses the teachings of four great jazz masters I had the chance to study with: Joe Lovano, Dick Oats, Andy Fusco & Henry Butler.
