Every song on The Journey started out as an improvisation. David listened to a beat, visualized what the song might be about, closed his eyes and began to play. Widely appreciated in Jazz and classical circles, David has always been a performer. Improvisation is his most treasured language of music. For this reason, he felt it was of paramount importance that the album be played freshly and honestly, never a result of favoring studio engineering over true artistic performance.  

David has performed concerts all over the USA and Europe. He has produced, composed and performed on hundreds of recordings in all styles of music.
