ALBARE is the nom de guerre of Albert Dadon, a virtuoso jazz guitarist with a strong melodic sense and a wealth of global influences. Born in Morocco and raised in Israel and France, Albare first worked as a musician in Paris, before emigrating to Australia at the age of 27. He is not only well known as a jazz musician but has maintained a highly successful career as one of Australia’s most prominent businessmen. He is undoubtedly a major force in Australian jazz, having directed the Melbourne Jazz Festival for many years and as chairman of the Australian Jazz Awards. In 2008 he received the Order of Australia for his service to the arts. He currently lives in Melbourne but travels constantly.
 
Albare’s recording career began with a string of ‘acid jazz’ albums for Festival Records. Longing to return to his first love, instrumental jazz, Albare began recording and performing with his own band while simultaneously becoming a major force in Australia jazz in general. As director of the Melbourne Jazz Festival he presented great artists such as such as Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Sonny Rollins and Gary Burton. He also founded the Australian Jazz ‘Bell’ Awards during this time
