ORGAN POWERED GROOVE MACHINE!
The Giorgos Pafitis Organ Trio are a group of three young jazz musicians playing in the classic Jimmy Smith line up of guitar, organ and drums for a potent brew of musical cultures and styles. Formed in 2013 by guitarist Giorgos Pafitis, the band unites three powerhouse musicians of the latest generation, first drawn together by their passion for the organ trio format whilst studying together on the Masters programme at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, London.
The group aims to collate diverse influences, including Jazz, Funk, Pop and Gospel, in addition to folk music from around the world, to create a vibrant performing group that is able to connect with a wide audience. Pafitis's upbringing through traditional Greek folk music lends a particularly interesting and unique tinge to complete the groups instantly memorable sound. Through the edgy and dynamic, yet perfectly accessible musical blend this creates, the band works to promote the organ trio format with audiences around the UK.
Expect a few familiar favourites alongside highly melodic and colourful originals wrapped up in a tasty packet of groove.
