David White

Born:

With the 2011 release of Flashpoint, the debut album by the David White Jazz Orchestra, the trombone-blowing leader and his 16 compatriots served notice on the jazz world of an ensemble that, while steeped in big-band traditions, takes the music in exciting new directions rife with vibrant voicings and rhythmic variety. “[T]here is an infectious energy that may be the new signature sound in the development of the more contemporary jazz orchestra,” Brent Black stated in his review of Flashpoint for the Critical Jazz web site. “White clearly knows his jazz history and strikes a perfect balance by incorporating his musical influences while defining his own progressive style,” Karl Ackermann commented at allaboutjazz.com. And Aaron Cohen wrote in Down Beat that White “guides his 17-member orchestra through a program of compositions that seamlessly move from extended blues strut (‘I’ll See You in Court’) one moment to soft-focus serenity (‘First Lullaby’) the next.” Six new compositions from White’s pen now appear on The Chase, second CD on White’s Mister Shepherd Records label
