#LateNightJazz: Grey Paris at the Athens Jazz Festival.

Grey Paris was formed in Berlin in 2016 and they deliberately follow a certain aesthetic path similar to that of GoGo Penguin, Nils Frahm, and Fink. This musical chemistry led to their first album “now is the moment”, after their ideas turned into beautiful musical pieces. 

They characterize their music as “cinematic electro-acoustic jazz” and the truth is that the sound landscapes they make through enchanting, minimal and trance echoryhtms are creating images so powerful that they are one of the most unique modern jazz groups.
