Medoosa was formed in the early 1970's. Two of the original band were from Greece, drummer George Mihailidis and bassist Takis Spitambelis. The other two members of the band, Bob McHugh on Keyboards and guitarist Mike Janetakis were from the metro New York area.
The group began to experiment mixing Greek rhythms, with jazz and rock improvisations, something that had not been done at that time. Medoosa become the house band at the famous Ali Baba in Manhattan, and this led to opening for Jazz greats Chet Baker and Art Blakey. The group performed at International Music Concerts at Lincoln Center and the Greek Art Center.
By the mid 70's the members of the group went their separate ways. It was not until the late 1990's that George and Bob decided to get together again, which brought about this Medoosa reunion CD, DREAM STREET, with John Miksa on guitar and Antonis Triantofillou on bass.
