Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Born in Morocco and raised in Israel and France, Albare (Albert Dadon) first worked as a musician in France, before emigrating to Australia where he still lives. Albare’s recording and performing has always worked in parallel with his work to promote Australian Jazz, including in his directorship of the Melbourne Int’l Jazz Festival. Albare is also the founder of the Australian Jazz ‘Bell’ Awards (the Grammy equivalent for Jazz in Australia). Albare believes you can create high standard popular music and mix the genres: world, Latin, funk and folkloric music with jazz. He does this with a high level of creativity that communicates instantly to his audience. His music is not only fun, it is interesting and inspiring. This perspective is clearly demonstrated on his 2014 release ‘Two Decades of Jazz’, a new double album of highlights from Albare’s entire career. It’s a personal selection by Albare, blending what he considers his most important musical moments to date in his more than 20-year journey into recording jazz.
