Chiaroscuro, 2004, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: Dave plays a mean alto sax ranging from cookin’ bop on the opener and “Salt Peanuts” to romantic on “Bossa For Brigitte”. The character of his tone is on the raspy side but loaded with heart felt emotion. His technique is also outstanding but what makes his music so appealing is that he knows when to play what! This is a maturity that eludes many musicians. This is a hot recording!
