SEV Trio, Far from Close
July 3 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm EEST€10,00
SEV Trio are Tassos Spiliotopoulos on guitar, Panos Vassilopoulos on drums and Michael Evdemon on bass. The music was composed by Michael and Tassos and the goal was to achieve an elegant but emotionally powerful music through the electric sound of a modern jazz trio. Each one of the band members brought their own influences to the blend, ranging from electric jazz-rock and mainstream jazz all the way to classical and folk/world music.
It was during lockdown, in the winter of 2021. While Panos and Michael were isolated in their homes at Athens – Greece, Tassos was isolated in his home in Sweden. Panos took the initiative and mailed both of them with proposition: “Let’s make some videos together” he said! Michael and Tassos knew each other from high school but never had the chance to play together. What a great opportunity to play even from afar. Technology at the service of creativity! The trio made three videos, playing music by Michael Brecker, Avishai Cohen and Allan Holdsworth and it was more than enough for all everyone involved to realize that this collaboration had a future. So, the most logical next step would be for the trio to write and record original tunes. The concept was to write a record combining all of the elements that the trio shared: rich harmony, strong themes and a lot of space for improvisation.
Sometimes things happen so easy and effortlessly. This is the case with SEV’s debut album. Everything came to place easily and eventually the trio created a strong foundation for future creations!
