Tassos Spiliotopoulos - (Jazz)

Originally from Greece, Tassos Spiliotopoulos moved to London in 2000 and has studied at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama (Mmus) and Trinity College of Music (Bmus, Hons). During that time Tassos also attended seminars at the School for Improvisational Music in New York City where he studied and performed with Ralph Alessi, Ravi Coltrane, Brad Shepik, Jim Black and Drew Gress.

During the past few years Tassos has been touring with his own band as well as numerous other creative projects, performing in clubs and festivals in the UK, Germany, France, Greece, Sweden, Spain and USA. He has worked with artists such as Kenny Wheeler, Gary Husband, Asaf Sirkis, Tim Garland, Dimitri Vassilakis, Eileen Hunter, John Parricelli, Mike Outram, John Etheridge, and more. In 2005, Tassos formed his own quartet with three of the most talented musicians he has been playing with, Asaf Sirkis, Robin Fincker and Yaron Stavi. The idea was to create a fresh sounding, contemporary group that combines lyrical, extended-form compositions with high energy improvising.

The Quartet's first album 'Wait For Dusk' was released by Konnex Records in 2006. Tassos is currently leading a new trio with Asaf Sirkis and Yaron Stavi and has just completed recording the new album 'Archipelagos', to be released 24 May 2010 by F-IRE. The album also features special guests Kenny Wheeler and John Parricelli.

Archipelagos is the second release by guitarist/composer Tassos Spiliotopoulos, following the 2006 release of Wait for Dusk. Opting for a more intimate Trio format of Yaron Stavi and Asaf Sirkis, Tassos Spiliotopoulos continues to develop his compositional approach, which blends contemporary Jazz with modern classical, folk and even rock fusion. The album also features special guests Kenny Wheeler and John Parricelli.
