Much like an impressionist painter alters his color palette depending on how light falls upon his subject, Petros Klampanis alters the musical context in every track of Contextual, in order to point out different characteristics of the double bass. Petros Klampanis' debut album, Contextual is released by Inner Circle Music.

Contextual is a sonic portrait of the double bass and it has received raving reviews for critics and well known musicians:

"An amazing project!"
Greg Osby, saxophonist, composer, producer.

"Excellent writing and playing. I especially like Petros' aggressive melodicism, beautiful intonation, and uniquely personal string writing."
Drew Gress, bassist, composer.

"A formidable player and composer, bassist Petros Klampanis [...] makes his auspicious Stateside debut with Contextual"
Bill Milkowski, Jazztimes Magazine.

"Contextual is one of the most exciting records I have heard from a bass player in years! The writing and playing is excellent, with a very good sound and a wide spectrum of musical ideas."
Arild Andersen, bassist, composer
