Australian-born and Marrickville local, Dave Panichi, is internationally respected as a virtuoso lead trombonist, soloist, session player, composer and arranger.
Dave’s original compositions and arrangements have been performed and recorded by, among many others, the Buddy Rich Big Band, The Village Vanguard Orchestra, Blood Sweat & Tears, James Morrison, The Jazzgroove Mothership Orchestra (JMO), Ralph Pyl’s Sydney All¬ Star Big Band, Ten Part Invention and the Danish Radio Big Band.
While distinctively Australian, Dave’s music pays full respect to the jazz tradition and is infused with the rich flavours and modern influences of the two decades he spent living and working in New York alongside the world’s leading musicians.
Dave has recently returned from the US, where he recorded a DVD of his original big band compositions and arrangements performed live with an all-star group he assembled of New York’s finest musicians. “Paradigm” is out now.
