Sinatra with a Twist είναι ένα νέο μουσικό project του τζαζ περφόρμερ Αλέξανδρου Αφολτέρ και του ντράμερ Σεραφείμ Μπέλλου.
Ο Αλέξανδρος έχει εμπνευστεί από πολύ μικρή ηλικία από τη φωνή και την έκφραση του Φρανκ Σινάτρα. Μαζί με τον Παντελή Μπενετάτο στο πιάνο, τον Μάνο Λούτα στο μπάσο, τον Σπύρο Παναγιωτόπουλο στα κρουστά και τον Δημήτρη Παπαδόπουλο στην τρομπέτα, θα παρουσιάσουν μια δική τους jazzy εκδοχή του ρεπερτορίου του Σινάτρα. Γνωστά κομμάτια όπως τα I’ve Got You Under My Skin, Fly Me To The Moon, My Way αλλά και λιγότερο διάσημα όπως τα I’m A Fool To Want You και I Only Have Eyes For You θα ακουστούν μαζί τα αγαπημένα του Σινάτρα, όπως τα One For My Baby και Angel Eyes. Το αφιέρωμα σε μια από τις πιο αγαπημένες φωνές όλων των εποχών.

With the recent Centennial celebrations for Frank Sinatra it has become clear that his music is still relevant today.

“Sinatra with a Twist” is a music project by Jazz Vocalist Alexandros Affolter and Drummer Seraphim Bellos.
Alexandros has been inspired by Frank Sinatra’s vocals, phrasing, timing and diction from a very early age. Together with Pantelis Benetatos on piano, Manos Loutas on bass, Spyros Panagiotopoulos on drums and Dimitris Papadopoulos on trumpet, they will bring their own jazzy take on the Sinatra repertoire. Well known songs like “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”, “Fly Me To The Moon”, “My Way” and not so well known songs like “I’m A Fool To Want You” and “I Only Have Eyes For You” will be performed and paired with songs that Sinatra loved to perform like “One For My Baby” and “Angel Eyes”.


Alexandros Affolter was born in Amsterdam and studied Acting, Jazz and Musical Theater at the prestigious Lee Strasberg Theater Institute in New York. Since 1994, Alexandros has been performing in various jazz clubs (Alto, Bimhuis, Paradiso in Amsterdam. Porgy & Bess Jazz Club Vienna. Spice Of Life, Zedel, Vortex in London.
