Their first album titled “Jazz on T.A.P” contains nine original compositions by Nikos Terzakis & Yannis Papadopoulos and was released in February 2012 as an independent production.
The trio has appeared in international jazz festivals in Greece (Tinos Jazz 2009, Athens Jazz Marathon 2011) and has performed in most jazz venues in Athens and the Greek province. It has been hosted by Greek radio producers Pantazis Tsaras (ERA3, Kosmos 936) and Cornelios Diamantopoulos (Sto Kokkino 105.5).
