Joe Chindamo
Pianist and Composer, Joe Chindamo was born in Melbourne in 1961, the eldest son of Italian immigrants. At the age of 6, he was encouraged by his parents to take up a musical instrument: the accordion. He immediately fell in love with music and the idea of creating it. Inspired by the great pianist Oscar Peterson, Joe switched, at the age of 15, to the piano. Soon he was working with the well-known band leader Denis Farrington and other musicians twice his age during the 70fs. Meanwhile, at home he taught himself jazz piano. He studied the recordings of the great jazz pianists, wrote out their solos, then duplicated them on his piano.

At 18, Joe attended Melbourne State College, where he received his first formal piano lesson and studied classical music for the first time. He soon became the preferred pianist of just about every film composer in town. Joe's playing has adorned more than 60 films.

He has toured extensively through Europe, the US, Japan and Argentina and recorded & played with international jazz artists such as the late Ray Brown, Billy Cobham, Lee Konitz, Mike and Randy Brecker, Frank Morgan, Mark Turner, Ernie Watts, Ravi Coltrane, Larry Coryell & James Morrison. Joe has to date recorded 10 CDs as leader.

More recently, his CD Joy of Standards reached number 1 on the HMV modern jazz charts in Japan, the first Australian artist to have achieved this distinction. A Vol. 2 edition was released in January 2003 to wide acclaim reaching number 3 on the HMV modern jazz charts. Continuing his mutual love affair with Japanese audiences, Chindamofs CD, America - Joe Chindamo Trio plays the Paul Simon Song Book, was released in Japan in March 2005 and reached number 2 on that countryfs HMV Modern Jazz Charts. This is Chindamofs third release in Japan, all three CDs becoming best sellers.
