Dave has been a pro keyboardist since 1965, when he joined his first high school band, The Sonics, winners of many battle of the bands, and a local sensation in Evanston, IL. Now based in Boston, David is the musician behind a series of dance CD's, entitled Ballroom Solitaire Parts 1-V CD's, in 2000-2001, and composed the soundtracks for the independent documentary, The Living Gift. Dave's music was featured on theHome Plate cooking show in Atlanta, GA, in the early 2000's. In 2010 Dave released Dreamer, his first album on iTunes and other digital outlets, and followed it up with his current album, Seasons, now available on all major digital music stores. Dave's music is a type of crossover jazz, mostly original compositions, with elements of funk, pop, rock, traditional jazz, ethnic, and even classical! Dave's piano style is similar to his primary influences, Lyle Mays, Chick Corea, Jeff Lorber, David Benoit, Bruce Hornsby,Donald Fagen, Steve Winwood, and others. His music is similar in style and feel to The Rippingtons, incorporating other artist styles such as Steely Dan, Jeff Lorber, et. al. Dave's compositions are tightly constructed with strong melody and ensemble interplay, and as always, improvisations are featured. "Jazz is more a state of mind, a freedom to explore and express while maintaining a sense of cohesion amidst the musical whims. It's less a genre than a determination to be original and use all the musical influences that fit the mood."
