Arthur Sadowsky is now considered one of the top electric bass players in the New York scene. Currently he is performing, composing, arranging and the musical director of “Arthur Sadowsky and the Troubadours”, regularly gigging in Manhattan. Sadowsky and the Troubadours perform a modern version of classic jazz that is stimulating to the jazz enthusiast while at the same time very melodically pleasing to the casual music lover.
His latest effort “Beautiful Moments”, with his band, “The Troubadours", serves up highly crafted arrangements and unparalleled play with melodies like “How Deep Is The Ocean” and, “Beautiful Love”.
Through years of study Arthur has perfected his craft as a performer, composer and arranger and has truly created his own unique sound with heavy influences from the great lineage of jazz musicians most notably Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk and Joe Zawinul.
Sadowsky was born and raised in the icy tundras of the USSR Arthur was surrounded by music and art from a very young age and knew this was going to be a life-long passion.
Studying Russian classical music throughout his childhood it wasn’t until the age of 14 when he heard the music of Joe Zawinul that his life would change forever. Hearing jazz for the first time was the awakening he was looking for, according to Arthur “it was like being able to fly or speak to Dolphins.” He knew to pursue this dream he would have to leave his country.
