MUSICIAN Born:

David Finck

Music can only be described with words, but for David Finck, music is a language all its own. “I hear music as a spoken language,” he says. “When I listen, I’m conscious of the breaths that are taken during a phrase; I hear the vocabulary, the inflection, and the syntax. I listen for all of it.”It’s a statement that makes sense given David’s skills as a bassist and the diverse artists he has played and recorded with " among them; Dizzy Gillespie, Aretha Franklin, Sinead O’Connor, Natalie Cole, Rod Stewart, Herbie Hancock, Ivan Lins, Al Jarreau, Tony Bennett, Paquito D’Rivera, George Michael, Rosemary Clooney and Andre Previn, to name just a few

New York Voices: Reminiscing In Tempo

Read "Reminiscing In Tempo" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

What the quartet New York Voices achieves with their performance of Dave Brubeck's “Blue Rondo Á La Turk" disguised as “Round, Round, Round" by lyricist Lauren Kinhan is nothing short of a schizophrenic jazz “Carmina Burana." Lithe, muscular, and smart, the performance is dense and thought-provoking, deftly navigating between its disparate 9/8 and 4/4 sections.

Shelly Berg and David Finck: The Deep

Read "The Deep" reviewed by Dr. Judith Schlesinger

So it happens that pianist Shelly Berg and bassist David Finck were hired by Chesky Records to play on a Livingston Taylor album.
