On paper, Joe Chindamo has been lauded and awarded for as long as he’s been playing music. He has a fan-base whose loyalty brooks no argument. In February, he completed a tour of three prestigious invitational concerts in Italy, and shortly after returning to Melbourne ‘popped over’ to New Zealand for a concert in Christchurch at The Great Hall Arts Centre, where he moved the audience during Earth Hour by arranging to have the lights turned out and playing ‘Smile’ into the darkness.
He’s been the recipient of fellowships, grants and commissions and has had CDs sitting right up at the pointy end of best-seller charts.
Joe Chindamo won the 2002 MO award for Australian Jazz Instrumental Performer of the Year. He was nominated for the same award in 2003 and won it again in 2004.
Other career highlights include, recording The First Take (a.k.a. A Brief History of Standard Time) with the father of the modern jazz bass, Ray Brown (of Oscar Peterson Trio fame), recording and performing with Michael and Randy Brecker, Lee Konitz and drumming wonder Billy Cobham (with whom Joe made two CDs and toured the world 20 times throughout a ten year association)
