Lunchtime Jazz with Vasilis Xenopoulos and Paul Edis £5

Vasilis Xenopoulos & Paul Edis (sax & piano) belatedly launch their 2016 duet CD 'A Narrow Escape' on Tyneside.

Greek-born and raised, but resident in London since 2002, saxophonist Vasi X has a hard-swinging, explosive style that harks back to the 1960s or even earlier - a review of his album ‘Loud City’ suggested that his appeal is to 'devotees of hard bop, funk and Blue Note recordings', and that seems about right. His association with Paul Edis goes back a good few years - and it’s invariably with Paul that he teams up whenever he’s in the North East.
