Christos Anestopoulos

Wish You Could Stay… is the second album of Christos Anestopoulos (the first was ``swinging over the surfaces`` released 2003).
You can call it Fusion Jazz but there are many ethnic influence.
Colours from Greece with lyras and outi and odd meter Greek folk tunes like ``once upon a time``.
There are tunes like ``Tholo`` that goes back in rock times and adolescence.
Other times mix country jazz with ethnic and rock with brass sections that they give a jazz mood.
Most of the time its a ECM style sound like the `wish you can stay…`` and ``perfect no perfect`` with the sound of 12string guitar that dominates.
David Lynch is playing sax in this album (in 4 tunes) with his unique way,like the solo on wish you could stay and the intro of this tune.
