About the Artist:
Pianist and composer Lefteris Kordis was born in Athens, Greece. Since age four, he has studied, performed, and composed based on a wide spectrum of genres including Chamber Classical and Avant Garde, Jazz, Greek and other Mediterranean Folk, Byzantine, and South American. His musical experiences include stints with Steve Lacy, Sheila Jordan, Joe Lovano, Greg Osby, Robin Eubanks, as well as Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis and traditional Greek folk clarinet players Vasilis Saleas and Panayotis Haliyannis. Lefteris has premiered works by composers such as Yusef Lateef, James Grant, and John Mallia, and has collaborated with visual artists, dancers, poets, and theater directors/actors. Lefteris holds a doctorate degree from New England Conservatory of Music, where he is currently on the Jazz Studies and the Music Theory faculty. His dissertation focuses on the influential Boston-based jazz pedagogue Charlie Banacos. He has released four record albums as leader or co-leader, and has appeared in numerous venues and festivals in Europe and the US.

"A pianist with skill, touch, musicality and a gift for making songs from songs. Plus, he can swing! Give a listen" ~ Bob Brookmeyer

"A young pianist & composer who has demonstrated an exceptional creativity, in both his playing & his writing, as well as showing us all, his very strong commitment & motivation to aim for high musical goals. Talent like his is rare." ~ Steve Lacy

"Pianist Kordis is a masterful musician whose nimble mind can perform the most amazing spontaneous improvisations on any given theme, lightning fast in his fingering and always in precise coordination with the singer and others. He is quite a phenomenon!"
~ David K. Rodgers (Hardwick Gazette, August 17, 2011)

"Kordis is the real discovery on this album [Paolo Lattanzi's Multitude, feat. Robin Eubanks], his playing is brilliant throughout whatever the tempo and he exhibits genuine ability as both soloist and accompanist. He's certainly a player I'd like to hear more of."
~ Ian Mann (The JazzMann.com - March 2010)
