Reviews

“Infinite grace poetry and passion”
“Greek saxophone prodigy Dimitri Vassilakis is revered as the Hellenic god of post-modern expression. A rhapsodic stylist of immense power and authority.”
BBC Music Magazine (labyrinth – album of the month, voted 2nd jazz album of the year).

“Leader Vassilakis’ compositions offer a perfect platform for post-modern expression…whiz- kid tenor player from Greece…his style is the post-Coltrane, post-Rollins style…high-energy and immensely fluid.’’
New York Press (Labyrinth Live at Birdland)
