As one of the most versatile and highly trained reed players of his generation, Andres Boiarsky brings a wealth of experience to his excellence as a sideman and leader in the jazz world. From his home in Buenos Aires to the Royal College of Music to the Lionel Hampton Orchestra and beyond, Andres has followed in the footsteps of the great tenor players with a style worthy to take the place of one of his mentors, James Moody, in the Dizzy Gillespie All Star Big Band.Beginning his musical life with piano lessons at the age of six, Andres later switched to reed instruments as he became more deeply involved with the strong revivalist jazz scene in Argentina during the mid seventies. With that stylistic jazz idiom, Andres also began playing the tenor, alto and soprano saxophones.In 1978 he began his studies at the renowned Royal College of Music in London where he received an A.R.C.M. degree. During this time, Andres also formed his own group and recorded his first solo album for Spotlight Records as well as numerous recordings for the BBC. After completing his studies in England, Andres returned to Argentina for six years during which time he recorded two solo albums for CBS records.In 1988, with the encouragement of Paquito D'Rivera and Carlos Franzetti, Andres moved New York where he joined the Lionel Hampton Orchestra; he would later become the band's musical director for six years.Also, beginning in 1993, Andres was a member of the United Nation Orchestra under the direction of D'Rivera.
