“[…] Vasilis is also an excellent bass player, in the same league as some of the very best.[…] (Greg Drygala / HiFiCritic, UK) “[…] The well practiced play of Stefanopoulos, consisting of pizzicato, bowing and even drumming, is of high class. […] (Hifi.nl, NL) “It’s not easy to replace an entire orchestra but it’s a joy to listen to Vasilis’ accompaniment. His accompaniment seems effortless and he ensures that the whole remains euphonious.” (JazzFlits NL)

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.
