Jazz Elements - Jazz Trio in Crete

In 2017, three friends with a shared passion for jazz came together in Chania on Crete. They decided to create a weekly jazz club at Elements in Plaka where they could showcase different artists or genres each week, and play Broadway jazz standards in their unique improvisational style. As a result, they quickly gained a devoted following from both locals and summer visitors from around the world.
All three members of the trio had extensive experience as professional musicians, having performed in various projects and bands across the globe. Their reputation grew, and they began to attract like-minded musicians to form a collective of some of the finest jazz talents on the island. Based in Chania, they perform at intimate private venues, weddings, celebrations, and festivals throughout Greece.
They perform music by Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, George Gershwin, Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Rollins, Antônio Carlos Jobim, Wayne Shorter, Miles Davis, Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, Thelonious Monk, Clifford Brown, Horace Silver, Victor Young, Billy Strayhorn and others.
