George Spanos at Spectrum: Greece-Styled Avant New York


121 Ludlow St #2, New York, NY 10002

A new voice on the New York scene, drummer George Spanos has been a New Yorker for about a year, being drawn here from his home in Athens, Greece, to pursue his passion for the pocket of avant-garde music that the jazz community here has nurtured over the years. He celebrates the release of his debut album, Dreams Beyond, on the fledgling Evolver Records label, owned by vocalist Lola Danza. Spanos’s music is inspired by Ornette Coleman, John Zorn and late-period John Coltrane, and also features the European vibe of electronics. He performs at the Lower East Side’s Spectrum, the sonics-advanced space that has as its mission, in its own words, to be a “technology-intensive site for innovative music, multimedia and art.” Housing two biotechnology companies during day and also featuring chamber music, Spectrum doesn’t sell advanced tickets, which instead are sold at the door on the evening of the show. “We sometimes get near capacity,” the house runners say, “but have never had to turn anyone away.”
