Söndörgö Releases New Single, “Spoon,” With Chris Potter

Söndörgö’s new single “Spoon” featuring Chris Potter is now available on all streaming platforms! A bit Balkan and a bit jazz. The melodies of “Spoon” were heard by the legendary saxophone king from Sutka, Ferus Mustafov, during one of our jam sessions. But in this composition, it transformed, sometimes grotesque, sometimes jazzy, but rather Gyezz-like.
