Uros Spasojevic

Uroš Spasojević, bassist and composer, was born in 1985 in the city of Valjevo, Republic of Serbia. Until now, he has released five albums of his original compositions: “Portrait in Bass” (2014), “Story on Bass” (2015) that received high praises in the United States of America, most prominently, in the reviews of a music journalist and a writer Walter Kolosky and the music critics of a leading world fusion music brand and record label “Abstractlogix” who graded this album 4.5 out of 5 stars. Album “Third View” (2016) featured special guests Scott Kinsey, who was mixing and mastering engineer, saxophonist Bob Reynolds and guitarist Nir Felder. In 2016, this album was included in the top 5 most interesting Serbian jazz records, as selected by the editor of broadcasting station Radio Novi Sad, and in the top 15 albums recommended by the owner of the American record label Moonjune Records. His fourth album, Expressions (2017) is a solo bass project. Uroš’s fifth album “V”, recorded in cooperation with a pianist Bojan Marjanović, was published in December 2018 by the Norwegian record label “Amp Music & Records”.

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!
