Dave Flippo

Born:

FLIPPOMUSIC formed in 1992 by Dave Flippo, with the plan of bringing his "globaljazz" pieces to life and sharing it with the Chicago community. What started as a mad experiment of fusing jazz with different world music grooves and styles(CDs: "Tendrils of Light" and "Ganesh") has expanded to include Flippo's original vocal works (CD: When the Heart is Strong")—many in the contemporary jazz venue. The band's latest recording project -"Tao Tune" returns a bit to the original global fusion theme—this time with the written content. Flippo's love of the ancient and very cool Tao Te Ching inspired him to make some of the text into lyrics and set them in a variety of styles.

Also jazz piano teacher at the College of Lake County, Dr

Read "Dedications – Jazz From Planet Flippo" reviewed by Richard J Salvucci


So, when was the last time you tried to count a Greek and Irish jig in 14/8? Many years ago, the cognoscenti shared Joe Morello's giggle of relief when he and the rest of Dave Brubeck's quartet got through “Unsquare Dance." Dave Flippo, however, is light years beyond 7/4. But odd meter is really not the ...

When Dr. Dave Flippo told his bandmates that he wanted to write music for each of them for his new album, he asked what elements they wanted him to include.
