Dave Thompson

Born:

Dave Thompson has made a career of being a guitarist-for- hire. Dave plays in the band of Juno winner Susan Aglukark, as well as with urban jazz soul singer Kellylee Evans. Dave studied jazz guitar and composition at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and has played thousands of gigs in concert halls, festivals, summer resorts, clubs, musical theatre, radio and TV, as well as on many CDs as a sideman. He released his latest CD “found. Wanting.” in 2007. In it there are echoes of Joni Mitchell, Pat Metheny, Sting, George Benson, and  Lyle Lovett. Some descriptions by others: “a smooth and sublime fusion” “so transparent and natural, it is like it was never recorded at all” with “brilliant lyrics, clean recording, warm voice and melodic guitar playing”, “delicate jazz guitar that dances at the right moments”, and “Found.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
