Born in Poland to Greek parents, Apostolis Anthimos is one the country’s most interesting instrumentalists to bridge the gap between the aesthetics of jazz and rock. Although his first steps into music were made with the help of a guitar, “Lakis” is an equally captivating drummer, bassist and keyboard player. Since 1971 he has been the member of SBB, one of Poland’s leading progressive rock groups. The 1980s saw the beginning of his co-operation with Tomasz Stańko, both on stage and in the studio (“C.O.C.X.”, “Lady Go”, “Chameleon”), as well as stints with the bands Krzak and Osjan. During the years spent in Greece Antimos was a much sought-after side musician, travelling around the globe as George Dalaras’ drummer. In 1994 his debut solo album “Days We Can’t Forget” was finally released (guest musicians included Gil Goldstein, Matthew Garrison, Paul Wertico, Jim Beard and Sugar Blue). Anthimos was also in charge of the band Theatro, but for more than a decade now he has performed with his own trio (assisted by Gary Husband and Mark Egan). He remains a regular recording and performing artist.
Presently Apostolis Anthimos is engaged in a number of projects, the key one being his trio (Anthimos / Husband / Egan). The artist’s gigs mingle the finesse and sophistication of jazz with the energy of rock, covering both his solo compositions and SBB tracks.
