Lefteris Christofis Lefteris Christofis

Kurt Lundvall Mastering: “Guitarist Lefteris Christofis recently mastered his new album “ManTis”. The album features Chico Freeman on Saxophone, Dominique Di Piazza on bass, Jacques Marugg on vibraphone and Nikos Touliatos on drums. I loved working on this album and enjoyed the chance to work with such an extraordinary musician”. Benedetto Guitars Artists:“Lefteris Christofis is our first Greek Artist/Endorser. He came to our attention via Pat Martino, and is clearly a top (and still rising) player and educator in Europe. Lefteris spent nearly a decade in London, and has worked/recorded with jazz greats Paul Wertico, Jeff Berlin, and Chico Freedman. He is a Blue Note artist and educator”. Joe Ferrari in Jazz Improv: “The Greek lyrical guitarist Lefteris Christofis is the kind of an artist who through his music transfers internal images, visions and scenes from the realm of reality and fantasy. “… upon further listening I began to hear Mr. Christofis unique voice. He writes wonderful compositions, evocative of a deep emotional landscape”. Lefteris Christofis has been on stage for more than 35 years presenting his music.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
