Results for "Dave Tull"
For twenty-five years Dave Tull has been known in the Los Angeles area as a world-class jazz drummer. In recent years, however, Dave has been making a name for himself as one of the country’s finest jazz vocalists. With his new CD, “I Just Want To Get Paid”, Dave cements that reputation, and adds songwriting to his list of talents. Dave has toured the world since 2000 as drummer and lead vocalist for Chuck Mangione. Dave’s vocal on Mangione’s “The Children of Sanchez” and his bebop scat vocal on “Dizzymiles” has been featured at hundreds of concerts including The Playboy Jazz Festival at Hollywood Bowl and The Blue Note in New York City. Singer Cheryl Bentyne (of the Manhattan Transfer) had Dave sing on two tracks of her CD “Moonlight Serenade” (King Records, 2003) including the song “Tull Tales”, so-named because Cheryl was so knocked out by Dave’s scat soloing! Three times Dave has performed with Bentyne for a week at Tokyo’s Cotton Club where he has sung a nightly duet with Cheryl on “Blue Moon”

Wallflower. The word has zero application to describe jazz drummer, vocalist and composer/arranger/producer, Dave Tull. He's more like a Venus Fly-Trap of talent, devouring all those activities and offering a keen eye for life's surrealities. He demos all on his second CD, texting and driving. It might just be what's needed for a long, endless drive ...

Whoa! Is that a sharp new Dave Frishberg lyric we hear poking fun at the pompous and assailing the absurd? Could it be Bob Dorough, Mose Allison or perhaps Giacomo Gates? No, the often humorous and always perceptive sentiments expressed on I Just Want to Get Paid! are those of Los Angeles- based sideman Dave Tull ...

The differing moods of each album, ultimately, reflect the musical nature of the composer(s) ...
