Stefanos Tsourelis Stefanos Tsourelis

Using the oud and guitar as his vehicle, Stefanos imprints his experiences from Greece and London on his music, taking the audience on an authentic journey that uniquely fuses Mediterranean music with jazz. The collaboration with bass player Dave Jones and drummer Eric Ford allowed the project to creatively evolve to its final form. Currently, the trio presents its debut album “Native Speaker” as well as new material while performing in the UK and abroad, at venues and festivals including the EFG London Jazz Festival, Ealing Jazz Festival, Teignmouth Jazz Festival, the Bulls Head, Jazz Cafe POSK, the Vortex and the Green Note. The second album has been recorded and will be ready for release soon.

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.
