Alekos Vretos Quartet

Greek oudist, pianist and composer Alekos Vretos  has  been merging jazz, Arabic, Greek and Latin music in a masterful blend of sounds from traditional instruments, such as the oud or the nay, vs. the modern ones. As a  bandleader, Alekos has  developed a unique  atmosphere  for  his  music: keeping  traditional   sound in  the front  line, he expands it  through  jazz  improvisation  and  exploding  rhythmic development.
