Leading British jazz label Ubuntu Music’s latest upcoming offering is a celebration of the multi-cultural melting pot that is London’s vibrant jazz scene. With a history spanning Greece, the USA, and the UK, saxophonist Vasilis Xenopoulos and pianist Paul Edis’ upcoming record is a musical reflection of the paths and relationships their lives in music have led them on.

Vasilis and Paul began playing together 20 years ago when both relocated to West London to study. Originally from Greece, Xenopoulos had just finished studying at Berklee College in the US, while Edis had moved South from the Northeast of England.

In the intervening years, they’ve played numerous shows together, releasing their debut album ‘A Narrow Escape’ in 2016 to critical acclaim. With Joel Barford (drums) and Adam King (double bass), their latest recording features original music inspired by the theme of ‘home’… home in this sense not only represents the many places they’ve both lived, but also the people they’ve known along the way.

The duo describe the music on Feels Like Home: “Rooted in the jazz tradition, this is music that’s eclectic, groove based and fundamentally melodic. Including elements of hard bop, latin jazz, gospel and even folk, there are nods to Dexter Gordon, Stanley Turrentine, John Coltrane, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Bill Evans, Brad Mehldau, McCoy Tyner and more besides. This is honest music full of emotions, inspired and unified around the central theme of ‘home’.”
