Sebastian Grosu

Sebastian is a guitar player, songwriter, producer and educator based in Bucharest, Romania. His musical journey begun in his teens when he founded several metal bands in his hometown in Transilvania. In 2001 he decided to found Alinian together with his brother Radu Grosu. Labeled by the music media an art rock endeavor, the band played extensively the local club circuit and also participated in a series of national festivals (Brasov - 2005, Buzau 2006, Turnu Severin 2009) In 2006 Alinian started the collaboration with Taine Records which led to the “Garden of Alinian” album, released in 2007. After that... jazz happened! Being infected with the jazz virus, Sebastian decided to become a virtuoso guitar player and improviser. He took a one year journey into the world of gypsy jazz hitting the stage together with the popular “Hot Club de Bucharest” led by the experienced guitarist Malin Cristache. After some serious woodshedding, he started writing songs again in the fall of 2012. The recording and mixing of the songs of his first solo album “Frailty”, a mixture of jazz and rock, has been completed in December 2013. The album was launched in February 2014.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
