Last Jam - Athens, 2007

Live recording: Tuesday 14.04.07 - Nakas Conservatory, Athens

This video was shot on Tuesday, April 24, 2007 at the Nakas conservatory. A group of Finnish musicians who had visited Greece perform a farewell jam along with:

Asteris Papastamatakis - keys
Kostas Konstantinou - bass
Kostas Kouvidis - drums.

It was also meant to be KostasKouvidis' farewell jam . The following night, a few meters away, at Pesmatzoglou street, a road crash took him away from us.
He'll always be there in the music universe and in the hearts of all the people he loved and loved him back, too.
We are grateful to our Finnish friends who have sent this video to us.
