Velibor Pedevski on the music of Jan Hammer - an artists who will always be remembered as one of the best synthesizer soloists ever. His mastery of the Mini Moog has marked the pioneering period of “jazz-rock” dominance. Whether it was his playing while being a member of the legendary Mahavishnu Orchestra, or his own projects that followed, he has always put a stamp on each piece of music he was involved with. His groundbreaking album “The First Seven Days” is still considered a pioneering example of acid jazz.
VELIBOR PEDEVSKI is a music historian, journalist, and sound artist, a long time student of creative music. His deep involvement as a writer, radio presenter, record label executive, artists’ business partner and collaborator, musician, as well as his 13-year teaching experience as a professor of Contemporary Jazz and its Exponents at the New School for Social Research in New York, has given him a great insight of the dynamics in the evolution of creative improvised music.
