Saxophonist, composer and educator Vasilis Xenopoulos is one of the most accomplished Greek jazz musicians of his generation and a genuine representative of straight ahead jazz. London became his permanent home after graduating with honors from the Berklee College of Music in Boston. He has worked with some of the best musicians of the International Jazz Scene as a band leader, a section leader and as a guest soloist at various projects. As well as a fabulous rhythm section, we are very fortunate that the Quintet will also feature the brilliant young trumpeter Freddie Gavita, (winner of the British Jazz Awards for Best Trumpet in 2017) joining the band for this concert to celebrate the music of Dexter Gordon, one of the true masters in the history of jazz and hence the name ‘Dexterity’.
“One of the most fiery young saxophonists around – blazes a path through the hard bop repertoire” – The Times
