Joe Chindamo - Artist in Residence

Artist in residence for December at Bird's Basement, Joe Chindamo is routinely described as one of the best jazz pianists in the world, but as an artist he transcends jazz; having composed concertos, chamber music and film music.

He has recorded 23 albums under his own name and won a plethora of awards: several ARIAS, Bell Awards (inducted to the Hall of Fame in 2016); and twice, the Mo Award for ‘Jazz Instrumental Performer of the Year.’

He has performed and recorded with the who’s who of many musical genres, from Billy Cobham, Ray Brown, James Morrison and the Brecker Brothers, to Rickie Lee Jones, Olivia Newton John, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Yvonne Kenny and most notably with Ann Sofie Von Otter.
