Since 1988 when he started his career as a musician, Igor Saavedra has recorded around 40 Cd’s as a Sideman, Solo Artist and Educator. Even though he had all the musical skills needed for the job, he didn’t devote all his career to sideman stage performing & recording, mostly because his interests in music have been always focused in creating and innovating. This innovation and creativity can be clearly seen in the technical, technological and conceptual aspects and mostly in the creation and developing of a strong identity as a musician and as an artist through the instrumental interpretation and the instrumental composing. Besides, the recordings he has been featured on as a sideman show a vast and eclectic display of musical styles going from Fusion to Jazz, Rock, Funk, Hip-hop, Pop, Salsa, Merengue, Folklore, Ballads and Clasical Music among others, providing the background and the necessary ingredients to build up his unique style as a Solo “Concerto” Bassist. On the other side, he had the personal conviction that only once he could be able to achieve that strong identity and uniqueness as a musician he was looking for, he was going to be able at the same time to start the mistic and captivating journey of recording his Solo Albums and doing it once every year. This Journey started when he was counting 48 years old on May 2015 with the release of his debut Solo Video Album “Organic Bass 1″ which consists in Mp4 video files for each track and pressed on a DVD disc for maximum edition quality.
