It’s been over 25 years since IGOR exploded onto the Sydney music scene as an in-demand touring saxophonist with Top Australian and International Artists. Since then, IGOR has fast established a reputation of being one of the country’s most versatile and sought after musicians with his albums achieving gold sales status.
Over the years IGOR shared the stage with names such as Engelbert Humperdinck, TCB band “taking care of business” (This is what Elvis Presley called his band), The Cockroaches, Brandford Marsalis, Modern Talking, Ken Davis, Soso Pavliashvili, Irina Ponarovskaya and more.
In 1998, his first solo album, simply entitled, IGOR, was produced, and a new era in his musical career was launched. This debut self-titled solo album of original material takes his music and his sax to places uncharted. Becoming a solo artist has led to the growing demand to perform live. IGOR’s funked out smooth and silky saxophone has been heard at many major festivals, concert halls, and jazz clubs worldwide.
Making his home in Sydney, IGOR spends his time composing in his custom-designed recording studio, performing and working in education.
IGOR is renowned for being a unique entertainer and when not touring with his own band, he is touring Asia Pacific appearing as a special guest with Australian artists. These tours started IGOR’s love-affair with that region of the globe. “There is nothing more fun or inspiring than playing live with incredible musicians in front of thousands of people”.
Firmly believing that each of his recordings should be a musical reflection of his life, IGOR celebrates this new millennium, with its new challenges and opportunities for his constantly expanding and reinventing musical style with the jubilant and life affirming excitement of his new albums.
