We were happy Dave finally made it back from NYC for a visit during Jazz Fest in Halifax last week. I met Dave over a decade ago back when I was the producer of the Atlantic Jazz Festival. I remember this happy guy strolling into the office fresh from NYC (originally from Ontario) wanting to put together a jazz series at the Kyber in Halifax, Nova Scotia and well, I'll let you read what others have written about him...it's all true...
David's work is an inconvenient cross-pollination of jazz, blues, art-rock, free improv, pseudo-classical, drone, minimalism and beyond.
It has also been called, "jazz...sort of", which is harsh, but true.
He generally works in such an odd and uncomfortable way, that it will pretty much guarantee that he remain in absolute obscurity. Intrigued?
