Mimis Plessas & The Orbiters ‎"Greece Goes Modern" 1967

This LP from 1967 by composer and conductor Mimis Plessas must be one of the grooviest music that ever came from the sixties Greece, some say this is the holy grail of Greek jazz music. This LP was actually a jazz fusion based on Greek old traditional folk songs, but here expressed with a new fresh beat, funky hip grooves, psychedelia, samba and bossa. The result is a groovy jazz lounge love affair, with fuzzy psychedelic guitars in a Greek atmosphere. Damned groovy!



  1. I better check this one out, Aaron! It's been a while since I've been back to Greece.

  2. Great comps and fantastic blog. Greetings from Greece.
