Cosmopolitan Urbane Jazz Band consists of Tass Petridis (bass) and Gerry PanTazis (drum) from Australia, combined with Nguyen Tuan Nam (piano) and Dung Da Lat (guitar) – the two leading musicians of Vietnam currently.
Tass Petridis and Gerry Pantazis are two Greek jazz artists who have achieved success in Australia, where they live. Coming to HOZO with the album “Cosmopolitan” by bass guitar Tass Petridis, a music project without borders, the album was composed and produced by himself in Vietnam together with music producer Le Thanh Tam and a series of artists from around the world participate in collaborations and recordings in many different countries. Not only is it a classy Jazz-Funk concert album, it also shows an open-minded musical mindset, a working style in a digital age, when musicians can still participate in composing, record on many different continents but still retain an overall sense of each note. A Jazz-Funk quartet is worth the wait at this HOZO festival.
