Dimitri Grechi Espinoza

Love Is A Losing Game

Dimitri Grechi Espinoza was born in Moscow in 1965. In 1998 he gave birth to the musical research group Dinamitri Jazz Folklore in collaboration with the Congolese company Yela wa, regarding the Kongo healing music. With his sax solo project “Oreb” he dedicates himself to the study of the relationship within sound, sonic space and its spiritual meaning, contributing in reconnecting music withits primary function of “dialogue” with the Holy Spirit. 

“Sound is the essence of our world. Two inseparable brothers stand into my being; one plays music, the other listen to it” these are the words used by Dimitri Grechi Espinoza to define his latest musical project. “Love is a losing game” wants to be a unique tribute to some of his favorite standards jazz musicians, an accurate research to achieve the absolute purity of that extraordinary melodies. 

Just like in movies, this musical travel leads themusic listeners into different melodical worlds, crossing through the scenic consequentiality of each track. 

This is a cozy and spiritual work that Dimitri plays in solo sax, remixed by Ponderosa Music Records using an old musical recording of the performance this artist  realized in august 2022  inside the Roman Cistern of the “Enrico Fiumi” archeological excavations of Volterra for the “Volterra XXII Ri/generazione Umana” festival. This place enabled Dimitri to exploit the natural reverb in order to add to this cathartic work a deep emotional and healing component that runs his spiritual and musical vision.
