Release date 10 April 2016

The Athens born guitarist and composer Tassos Spilitopoulos spent around twelve years living in London during which time he became a significant presence on the UK jazz scene. Spiliotopulos worked extensively with the Israeli born drummer and composer Asaf Sirkis and appeared on several of his albums. Sirkis returned the favour by playing on Spiliotopoulos’ solo albums “Wait For Dusk” (2006) and “Archipelagos” (2010)., both of which are reviewed elsewhere on The Jazzmann. 
“In the North” represents Spiliotopoulos’ third outing as a leader and features the Swedish musicians Orjan Hulten (saxophones), Palle Sollinger (bass) and Fredrik Rundqvist (drums). Already operating as a trio under Hulten’s leadership the three Swedes first met Spiliotopoulos when the guitarist was working with them on a project named “Tune-up Jarva”.
“I was looking for a band to play with in Stockholm” Spiliotopoulos recalls “and when I ran into Orjan, Fredrik and Palle we clicked instantly. I thought, here is a band I can really play with”.
