- Band: Nikos Kapilidis & the Jazz Utopia Featuring Theo Kapilidis
Jazz Utopia was founded by the drummer Nikos Kapilidis in 2003. In 2005 they recorded the CD “Arothymian”, based mostly on Nikos' original compositions. After several important changes, the group was inert for quite a long period. Nowadays, with fresh ideas, the group has reformed, bringing about an old dream of Nikos: two guitars in the same jazz group.
The significant Theo Kapilidis (Niko's brother, who lives and works as a musician and composer in Switzerland since 1976) and Thodoris Kotsifas, member of the Next Step Quartet, an excellent Greek jazz musician of the younger generation, is exactly the guitar duet which Nikos was seeking for a long time. Michalis Evdaimon is the bassist of the group, being a composer himself with many projects of his own.
A historical band, a jazz utopia based on Greek-rooted melodies, always seeking the improvisation.
