Dimos Dimitriadis Dimos Dimitriadis

Saxophonist, educator and Fulbright Artist/Scholar Dimos Dimitriadis has been regarded as a “powerful, dynamic and unpredictable contemporary jazz saxophonist with a great sound” by “NEA Jazz Masters Award” recipient saxophonist Dave Liebman

Dimos Dimitriadis cultivated his professional musical skills in the culture of US institutions like Berklee College of Music, and the New England Conservatory in Boston next to prominent jazz educators such as Joe Viola, George Garzone, Jerry Bergonzi, Hal Crook and others.

Focusing on jazz, free improvisation and contemporary composition he shaped his personal musical vision during trips to Italy, France and Scandinavia, drawing inspiration from the diverse European cultures and the groundbreaking work of his mentors and friends soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy, and pianist Mal Waldron.

His international training and strong performance skills have brought him to record and perform next to some of the leading jazz musicians in the world (such as US artists Tim Hagans, Adam Nussbaum, Ron McClure, Sheila Jordan, Mark Murphy, Keith Copeland, Jonathan Kreisberg, Rick Peckam, Chico Freeman, Ricky Ford and Ran Blake.

Dimos Dimitriadis is a well-traveled musician with multi-language skills and a firm grasp of the world’s music scene. From the USA to Brazil and South Africa, his musical activities have also brought him to Germany, Italy, Sweden, Austria, France, Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Switzerland, Portugal, Poland, Croatia, Latvia, Bulgaria, Cyprus and eventually his homeland Greece.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
