“An especially memorable performance … came from the lyrical Magnanimus Trio … often as gently yet engagingly polyrhythmic as it was spaciously modal in nature.”
Jazz Journal UK – Michael Tucker
“A full-fledged concert whose music almost mesmerized the affected audience.”
Kulturbloggen – Mats Hallberg
“The Greek trio, Magnanimus, were a revelation. Mixing Middle Eastern sounds … with modern lyrical jazz and a little electronics to create something a little different and their CD, No Time, captures the music perfectly.”
Jazzwise Magazine – Tim Dickeson
Reviews of No Time / 2016 – An Music
“Magnanimus Trio does not sound like a typical American post-bop or contemporary group, but as a group of Eastern Mediterranean, having assimilated different improvisation techniques, always in relation with the modal melodies, performing with confidence.”
Diskoryxeion – Phontas Troussas (gr)
“The 13 pieces / masterpieces that make up the album – compositions of the band members – each have its own narrative clarity, with influences that cover a wide range of jazz, out-jazz, classical, world or inter-folk or rock soundscapes, while as a whole they say their own, timeless and unworldly history with a fascinating mythology” that can distract us from the everyday and the trivial and sends us for an imaginative journey”.
Athinorama – Giorgos Haronitis
“A highly interesting group from Thessaloniki, Magnanimus Trio, with their third record, “No Time” show, now, to move beyond the confines of the Greek scene towards the European music scene.”
