Since moving to New York City from his native Wisconsin, David has performed and toured with the orchestras of Lionel Hampton, Toshiko Akiyoshi, and Duke Ellington. In 2000 he joined the Chico O'Farrill Afro Cuban Jazz Orchestra which was the beginning of several musical collaborations with GRAMMY award winning pianist Arturo O’Farrill. In 2008 he was invited to join the pianist’s RISA NEGRA sextet. On the band’s 2009 ZOHO release, “RISA NEGRA”, David is also represented as a composer. His tune,“The Darkness Is My Closest Friend”, was cited by Down Beat magazine as, “the most intriguing offering on the disc.” David’s newest recording, “Auction Project,” which is co-led with Arturo O’Farrill, will be released in September of 2010 on ZOHO. Auction Project is a unique combination of jazz, Latin, and Irish music which fearlessly traverses borders. As an educator and clinician David appears at colleges and universities thorough out the world. Since 2008 he has been an Assistant Professor of Jazz Studies at Bowling Green State University.
