Richard Pavlidis ‘Iconography’ Album Launch (Melbourne):

Melbourne saxophonist Richard Pavlidis launches his new album Iconography with Wilbur Whitta (piano), Nick Jansen (bass) and Tim Geldens (drums).

Expect instrumental, uptempo jazz with modern harmony, inspired by artists such as Chad Lefkowitz-Brown, Michael Brecker and Jamie Oehlers.

Richard has toured Australia, New Zealand and Europe and has performed at major festivals including Splendour in the Grass, The Manly Jazz Festival, and the Melbourne International Jazz Festival.

Richard’s debut solo album ‘Without Within‘ was released worldwide in 2019 and supported by an Australian tour.

Music from this album can be found in the Australian Jazz Real Book and the Australian Jazz Museum. The album caught the attention of celebrated saxophonist Kenny G, who said via social media ‘I love the way you combine bebop licks with more modern-sounding phrases, and your technique is amazing. You are such a great player!’

During the Covid quarantine in 2021, Richard released ‘Lockdown Sessions‘ – a global collaborative album of jazz standards featuring performances from Germany, Israel, the USA, and all around Australia.
