Electric Swing! There

is no piano and the sounds are blending together wonderfully. I was

late so as of yet, I have not heard Dave break out yet but, I am

anxiously awaiting! There he is and his soprano sounds superb!

He plays with so much

energy. Many of the tunes on his new CD were inspired by his daughter

and Greek mythology. He pulled out this wooden flute that dropped you

right into a meadow of some enchanted forest. Music and instruments

that tell a tale, a story wild and alive with excitement, danger and

surprising adventure!



Percussive and spirit

summoning, a mountain, a volcano erupting with scattering, thundering

and fleeting sounds of lurking wonder! Stories are what the world is

made of and it is so great to hear the music and have it guide you

through your own wild and creative imagination.



It is interesting

because this fusion sound locks you into a quite different universe.

Not your ordinary jazz groove but, a groove that is unto itself.

I am usually not the

biggest fan of AC (electric music) but, when you can plug into my

musical soul and provide me with an intrinsic introverted experience,

the music speaks. After it has been heard, you have been immersed in

the waters of your own imagination. It is wonderful penetrating

osmosis. You can feel the music permeating, pouring over your body like

chocolate syrup over ice cream and it is a delicious treat!
