Vasilis began his musical education, learning piano and clarinet at the age of ten in Athens. By 1999 he had graduated and won a scholarship for the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. Following graduation in 2001 he moved to England and has settled here. Vasilis is a remarkably talented saxophonist who plays with passion and composure and his performances are a delight to witness. He frequently plays with Nigel Price’s Organ Trio, which was voted best small group in the British Jazz awards 2017 and was nominated for the same award for 2018. (There is a superb video on Vasilis’ website showing him with Nigel Price playing Hank Mobley’s ‘Uh Huh’). Vasilis has been described as ‘One of the most fiery young saxophonists around’ and ‘a tremendous asset to the UK jazz scene’ and he is always a very popular visitor to Googlies.
