I am a professional freelance saxophonist and flautist located in NYC. I have years of experience in large event band settings, recoding sessions, and small group live performance. My playing is energetic, modern, and bold. While I can stand out, I can also blend in large groups, can write arrangements, and lead a section.
Hello fellow musicians-
If you are looking for a well rounded player who will bring professionalism, creativity, and drive to a project, you've found your player.
I am trained as a Jazz musician, but have full access to a wide range of stylistic playing. My main horns are tenor and soprano sax, and flute.
In my time in NYC I've played in large chamber ensembles, small jazz groups, rock bands, wedding bands, and wild avant-garde funk bands. With this experience, you are sure to walk away with a unique sound for any project you are creating. The tracks I've posted showcase my more adventurous side quite deliberately- while I can play restrained bossa novas and light jazz songs, I think it would be more interesting for you to hear the more original side of my playing.
If your project is heavy on horns, I can write arrangements and manage a section.
I am also a working producer. This will give you the added benefit of having another ear trained to hear the big picture in the studio.
I can also work from my home studio to provide quality sound recordings of myself.
I hope to hear from you!

VERY EASY TO WORK WITH AND GOOD CREATIVE INSTINCTS
Thanks David, just like before, prompt response and plenty of tracks to work with. Take care, Randel
David was easy to work with and very professional. The project was done in a timely manner. He added in that missing element that was desperately needed to make my project sound complete. He mixed in his own ideas along with what i wanted. The perfect blend of saxophones and horns was put together well. I would highly recommend working with David again in the future.
Fantastic work! Thank you
He did what I asked of him, in a timely manner and in a reasonable amount of time
