The Jazz Poet of Greece, Yannis has succinctly clariried his approach to poetry and jazz: Jazz is pure art. And it is not restricted to the music area. If we consider it as such then we ignore its greatest importance: the fact that above all Jazz is a way of life, an attribute of thinking and doing and, in my case as a poet, a way of writing, of getting into the heart of the poem.
