This Autumn, Greek sax star Vasilis Xenopoulos releases a new album celebrating the spirit and music of one of his musical heroes, Dexter Gordon. Vasilis will be bringing his quintet to Guildford to perform music from the album which consists of some of Dexter’s original tunes (specially arranged for this project), a few standards played in a “Dexter” style and a couple of original tunes written by Vasilis and inspired from Dexter’s legacy.
The quintet also features Quentin Collins on trumpet, Ross Stanley on piano, and Steve Brown on drums, with Marianne guesting on bass.
