"Delicious Chemistry Across The Universe"
Dimitri Vassilakis Quartet featuring Juliet Kelly
Dimitri Vassilakis, a saxophonist, singer and composer, has been described by the BBC Music Magazine as “The Greek God of Jazz”. Vassilakis will present his latest album with adaptations of songs that have defined the past and branded generations, such as Nat King Cole’s “Nature Boy”, The Beatle’s “Across The Universe”, Door’s “Light My Fire”, Nina Simone’s “Four Women”, and so many others. He will also perform a selection of his prized compositions, as well as orchestrations which have been recorded in New York by a top-ranking Jazz colossus.
Our special guest, the soulful voice of distinctive British singer and songwriter Jazz diva Juliet Kelly, hailed by critics as one of the UK's finest jazz stars. She has worked with exceptional musicians including award-winners Seb Rochford, Courtney Pine and Tony Kofi and performed with Courtney Pine at the Barbican for the Jazz Britannia concert broadcast on BBC2 television.
Several tours have taken Juliet and her Glam Jazz style to venues around the UK and she has also performed further afield with sell-out shows in Germany, Italy, Greece, Russia and America.
Juliet will perform beloved favorites, as well as songs from her personal LPs “Aphrodite’s Child” and “Delicious chemistry”.
