About The Event
***PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT IS POSTPONED DUE TO COVID INFECTION.***
Inspired by some of the legendary vocalists of the past David will be focusing on some of the music of great singers such as:-
Bobby Darin, Matt Monro, Tony Bennett, Vic Damone, Jack Jones and Mel Tormé & Johnny Heartman.
David captures the essence of these wonderful singers with a few surprises along the way, alongside his trio of Tim Lapthorn - Piano, Tom Herbert - Bass & David on vocals & loop.
The Times, The Guardian and The Observer have compared David’s vocal style to that of Mel Tormé and Chet Baker. Although his roots are firmly planted in the tradition of the classic Jazz singer, David delights in finding new ways to explore the Great American Songbook which results in a sound that is fresh, innovative and fun.
With his Jazz trio, David has performed in clubs and theatres in New York, London, Amsterdam, Kuala Lumpur, Dublin and Vienna. He weaves a soulful thread of Pop into his classic Jazz repertoire which – combined with his distinctive use of loops, harmony, beat boxing and comedy – makes him unique amongst his contemporaries.
"The epitome of cool" Dave Gelly – The Guardian
His debut Jazz album Just in Time was ‘record of the week’ in The Guardian, and his follow-up album with the Jim Mullen Organ Trio – Builders Brew – was described by Times Jazz critic, Clive Davis, as possessing “the spirit of Sinatra”. David’s albums have been favourably reviewed in The Times, The Guardian, Jazzwise, The Jazz Journal, Jazz UK, Crescendo & Jazz Magazine, Musician Magazine, UK and All About Jazz.
