Stratos Vougas

Saxophonist Stratos Vougas was born in Athens in 1967. His musical studies were initiated at the age of five, with a series of piano lessons both one-to-one as well as at the Athens Conservatory. After successfully completing his classical piano studies, jazz won him over and led to his intensive saxophone training.

The interim between 1993 and 1995 found Stratos Vougas in New York, where he collaborated with a handful of established jazz musicians, thus gaining invaluable experience. His return to Greece brought on a series of concerts in various Athens jazz clubs as well as throughout the country. Among the musicians he worked with were trumpeter Dusko Goykovich, drummer Vincent Ector, drummer John Vidacovich, drummer Phoenix Rivera, bassist Olivier Gatto, bassist James Lewis, drummer Steve Philips, and vocalists Carla Cook, Deborah Davis, Kysia Bostic, Jann Parker and Georgia Brown, to name but a few.
