Not many guitar players are as versatile as Andreas Hourdakis. In jazz his contributions to Magnus Öström’s band, Lars Danielsson, Karin Hammar, Sebastian Studnitzky, Jeanette Lindström, Joakim Milder, to name a few, has brought him to some of Europe’s most respected jazz stages - but in every setting he is part of, his unique sound is unmistakable. Andreas Hourdakis about “Underworld” The new record consists of 9 original tunes (composed by me) and it once again features long standing band mates Ola Winkler on drums and Martin Höper on double bass. Many songs on the album are inspired or reference Greek mythology or other mystical events. Like the tune Talos Run. Talos, a giant automaton in Greek mythology, who ran around my home island of Crete three times daily to protect Princess Europa and the shores of the island from pirates and invaders. I hope this track become every joggers’ soundtrack when running from now on. Underworld seemed a fitting and symbolic title. It’s impossible to not get affected by the current situation we live in and somehow, for me, the music on this album also reflects upon that. Are we perhaps creating Hades’s Underworld on our surface? I hope you enjoy listening! /Andreas Hourdakis “one of the most distinctive guitar voices in European jazz” / London Jazz News
