Jonathan Dimond

Known from an early age as a trombonist in both Classical and Jazz styles, Jonathan Dimond became attracted to the electric bass by the recordings of Jaco Pastorius during his high school years in Australia. Jonathan then further broadened his stylistic base into North Indian Classical music and the various contemporary streams of the 20th Century. His award-winning thesis “Improvisation in Composition Since 1950” illustrates his interest in the marriage of independent styles and disciplines. Jonathan Dimond has two graduate degrees in Contemporary Improvisation from New England Conservatory, Boston, USA. He also holds a Bachelor of Music in classical trombone. Jonathan is an active composer, electric bassist and tabla-player, and is know for his performances, compositions and improvisations with his contemporary jazz ensemble “Loops”. He works as a teacher, freelance performer, and recording session musician, and was until recently based in Boston and Los Angeles, USA. He now lives in Melbourne with his wife and two children.
