Jazz Improv & melodies from the Med by Stefanos Tsourelis Trio on this A World In London! 
Listen here: https://www.mixcloud.com/Resonance/a-world-in-london-11th-january-2017/

AWIL got off to a great start in 2017 with a formidable live session from bassist Dave Jones, percussionist Eric Ford, and Stefanos Tsourelis on oud & guitar! The trio was formed only recently in 2015 yet is already one of the most skilled & thrilling jazz-based outfits in our midst. Watching these three wise men of instrumental gifts is almost enough to make you forget the huffing & puffing of ‘that’ Trumpet across the Atlantic for a moment or two. They draw you into their rolling conversation of riffs and fills, questions and answers, solos and choruses, chattering, reflecting, and exclaiming along a musical route stretching from the Sahara to Thessaloniki and back to the UK. Stefanos Tsourelis Trio will release their debut album, ‘Native Speaker’ later this year.

JJ Stillwell
An evening of swinging standards to dispel the January blues. Aydenne Simone and Liam Stevens make the archetypal odd couple, Simone is exuberant and overflowing while Stevens cuts a pensive and intense figure at the piano. The rhythm section of Stilwell and Dessauer cast lithe shadows against the red velvet curtain of the new Jazz Room at the Bull's Head. The event promoter Seven Star Arts is pulling up the socks of this once iconic venue by swelling audiences and indulging in classic repertoires.

The Liam Stevens Trio is one of the most exciting young groups on the jazz scene today. Led by the dextrous piano playing of Liam who displays a deep understanding and passion for music, gaining plaudits from audiences and respected veteran musicians alike.

Joe Dessauer
With drummer Joe Dessauer and bassist Jj Stillwell, they produce a swinging sound and an electrifying visual performance, thrilling audiences of all ages and musical tastes.
They frequently perform with Ellie Bignall (Vocals) with recent gigs at Glentham Gardens, Kew’s Musical Museum and the Hamstock Orpheus and Equus Gala.
