One of the new breed of British jazz ‘Manouche’ guitarists with a fiery technique, superb sense of swing and a staggering knowledge of the Django catalogue!
We like to do our bit for the Gypsy Swing Jazz movement - after all it’s where Ben kicked off his career, so we couldn’t be more pleased to introduce this exciting new young guitarist. Kourosh has spent the last two year away from his native Leeds, in London, where he’s making surfboard sized waves! Seen as one of the players to watch out for and to play with, he follows in the steps of greats like Martin Taylor, Remi Harris and Gary Potter. Most gypsy swing players in the UK come out of the rock or heavy metal school of learning, but Khourosh has studied jazz from the get-go and it shows. Ben Holder plays violin and Paul Jefferies will be on double bass - a true Gypsy Swing ensemble with bags of entertainment on offer. Hear an interview by London jazz with Khourosh by clicking here
