“Not for a while have I been regaled with an admixture of musical styles and influences that worked so well in the interests of what we understand as jazz. It’s not what the oud can do for jazz, as it were, but what jazz can do for the oud. Or vice versa.
Other clubs should book Tsourelis and Co. They won’t regret it.”

Nigel Jarrett, Jazz Journal  [Full Review]

 

“One of the best [gigs] that I’ve seen at BMJ. Tsourelis is a brilliant player of both his chosen instruments and it was particularly enjoyable for me to see the oud being played at such close quarters.”

Ian Mann, the Jazz Man  [Full Review]

“Really enjoying Stefanos Tsourelis’ new record ‘Native Speaker’. It’s beautifully recorded with fantastic virtuosic playing, great compositions and a real sense of someone bringing something new to the table. Looking forward to catching them live”

Mike Outram

“I’ve enjoyed listening live to Stefanos on so many occasions so it’s great to hear this recording. I love his melodic, direct way of playing & the empathy of the trio here”

Phil Robson

“Stefanos Tsourelis speaks many musical languages on oud and guitar: jazz, rock, music from his native Greece and traditional music for the oud.”
