Greek-born, London-based guitar and oud virtuoso Stefanos Tsourelis alongside bassist Dave Jones and Eric Ford on drums launch debut album Native Speaker at Jazz Café POSK.

Eric Ford
Their music is a heady mix of jazz and rock with Oriental and Greek influences, traditional Mediterranean melodies and textures with Flamenco and African rhythms, generating dynamic grooves, combined with nuanced dynamics and sparkling arrangements. Stefanos follows in the footsteps of guitarists such as John McLaughlin and Ralph Towner, creating a personal and unique fusion of 'World Jazz' at its very best as a vehicle for his wonderful oud and guitar improvisations. His music is both melodically and rhythmically engaging.

"A wonderful sense of the trio grooving together very intuitively." London Jazz News.
