The last two years the trio has been performed from small jazz clubs to international jazz festival. Flying Jazz trio recorded a new alboum in 2019, Flying Jazz Trio-Nostalgia (7 original compositions by Stefanos) realized by L39.
Dimos Dimitriadis about Stefanos Andreadis Flying Jazz music:
“Stefanos can put together the group that sounds perfect for his music and his music is just right for the group: evocative, subtle, challenging, rhythms with character, melodies with simple but welcome twists. And above all there is the distinct scent of a Mediterranean landscape that permeates every turn of the music. Hopefully you will be able to share that by just listening.”
