Brilliant - gave the song what it needed, and did so with really nice tone and phrasing, too. Thanks!
Dave is the just best! I've worked with Dave for the first time at the BMI NYC Jazz Composers Workshop and he showed himself to be a brilliant musician. He always captured the sublime even when we were merely sight-reading charts; So getting a chance to work with Dave recording my original music has been a such a special experience that words just don't suffice. DAVE IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
I was very excited to get a chance to invite Dave to record trumpet on one of my large-ensemble compositions. Dave is brilliant and versatile musician on every level. He has a beautiful sound; is a great section player as well as a superior improvisor. Thank you Dave!
