BOB SEDERGREEN BIOGRAPHY

Bob Sedergreen's high regard and position in Australian music is unquestionable. His impact and influence in performance, composition and education for over half a century has secured his place as a national treasure. Bob has won the respect and admiration of recognised talents both in Australia and internationally. People like Jimmy Witherspoon, Nat Adderley and Phil Woods, to name but a few. Australian artists include: Brian Brown (OA), Allan Browne (OA) Don Burrows (OA), Ted Vining and Judy Jacques. Bob has also appeared in concert with all time greats like Dizzy Gillespie and Milt Jackson. Bob's musical abilities find him leading and working with a plethora of diverse ensembles and groups. From the traditional to the most contemporary, he infuses the music with authority of style, creative expression and wit, in a manner that is never arrogant or condescending. He has recorded many dozens of albums and over 32 CDs.

Bob has toured extensively both here and overseas including Jazz Festivals in Montreal, Malaysia and Scandinavia. He was Artistic Director of the Montsalvat International Jazz Festival 1993-4 and involved in negotiating performances by American working ensembles including the Nat Adderley Quintet and The McCoy Tyner Trio.

In 1990 Bob won the Inaugural Jazz Award for Australia's Best Keyboardist.

He has been described by colleague Dr. Tony Gould as the world’s best Blues pianist.
