Albert Dadon is already well-known in his adopted country of Australia.  Not only for his guitar wizardry and for his amazing business endeavors, but the support that he gives to other musicians.  That benevolent spirit has come to the United States to spread his positively in-tune stringed message...along with his five piece group, ITD.  That stands for International Travel Diary. 

Albare's new project is called "Long Way" and is an amalgam of all that he has heard - from Northern Morroco (his roots) to Israel, then France - and finally settling Down Under at the age of 27.  He became entrenched in the Acid Jazz scene there - and also organized the Australian Jazz Awards, as well as directing the Melbourne Jazz Festival.  Such prolific work did he do in this regard, that he was given an "Order of Australia" award for his service to the arts. 

When you hear Albare play, you will hear the beauty and complexity of his input, along with that of his friend, Cyprus-born bassist, Evripedes Evripidou.  It's a stunning global vision - what "Jazz Podium" magazine says is full of "melodic improvisations" and "boundless grace."

Albare and ITD will be in our region soon - and many of us are breathless with anticipation.  Wait until you hear him tomorrow - you will be, too!  Albare joins me at 2 p.m. Eastern.  However, the show fun begins at ONE!
