Album Notes
"Spiritual", "Dramatic", "Passionate" and "Soaring" is how David Boswell's debut CD -Hold Tight To Your Dreams- is being described.

"Without a doubt, this recording is 100% High Energy Smooth Jazz. David Boswell is a mighty talented jazz guitarist and all of it is completely evident on his brand new recording "Hold Tight To Your Dreams". It is just fantastic..."
- CIMRadio Smooth Jazz-New York

"David Boswell has a lovely, warm style. He's musical and soulful, the two qualities I admire most in any musician."
- Robben Ford

His music takes you on spiritual and emotional musical journeys........From the sounds of contemporary jazz to the dramatics of pieces which would find themselves comfortably on the big screen in an epic film, David's music captures the listener with well-composed and skillfully played melodic tunes.

David Boswell is a jazz guitarist with a rich sense of power and emotion in both his playing and his composing.

His love for the guitar started very early when he first heard the Beatles and Johnny Cash. Later it was the jazz guitar that really captured David's attention and has brought him to where he is today.

"I've been really lucky to have been able to study with some of the greatest jazz players in the world." (Pat Metheny, Dave Holland, Jack DeJohnette, John Abercrombie...)

Having grown up with a family of professional musicians, David had many different styles of music introduced to him at a very young age. Although he played the french horn in elementary school, it was the guitar that ended up being his true musical passion.

"There was always music going on in our home. My mother loved to play music all day and my father (an accomplished classical pianist) was constantly rehearsing and performing with other musicians at our home. As a child, I used to bring records to school for "sharing", when all the other kids brought in their pets or their baseball cards. I was always thinking in musical terms and began improvising when I was really young."

"I began experimenting with how to use the guitar in different ways at a young age experimenting with tunings and string types. I feel a little spoiled being a guitar player because of all the various textures that I can create just by using a different guitar. On this CD I use electric, acoustic 6 and 12 string as well as classical and synthesized guitars. I have always loved the sound of a big grand piano which sustains for days and I'm always trying to get that big sustaining acoustic sound from my guitars. I think I was one of the first guys in town to start using the guitar synthesizer and have fallen in love with that certain voice that is capable from them. It has sort of allowed me to be a horn player without having to learn a new instrument. I also love to sing and use my voice, but I could never remember lyrics to vocal tunes. The use of voice in my music is really just an extension of my playing. I think of my voice more like a trumpet, horn or cello. I love using my voice to create texture in my music."

The record features some of the finest musicians in the world. David's brother John Boswell on piano (celebrated composer, Hearts of Space Records recording artist) Dean Taba on bass (David Benoit, Andy Summers, Dave Koz, More Is More...) MB Gordy on percussion (Frank Zappa, John Tesh, LA Philharmonic, Doobie Brothers...) Randy Drake on drums ( Bill Watrous, Kirk Whalum, Dan Siegel, Pat Kelley...) with guest Eric Rigler on low whistle and uilleann pipes (Titanic, Braveheart, Josh Groban, Phil Collins, Rod Stewart...)
The record was recorded by World Class Engineer/Producer Eric Fahlborg.

Truly well done. Love the comps & arrangements!
Thanks, David. I've bought three CD's. Was introduced to your music by Gregg Kaufman (my son-in-law). Great work - continued success.



great beat and harmony-santa cruz style
perfect mood music for overcast grey days, sounds like you got some thoughts from pat metheny

Ken Mackey

This is a great CD!
This CD is well crafted and balanced. It is eclectic and varied. Nothing monotonous about it. It's my current fav and I am very excited about Bridge of Dreams, his latest. I will certainly be buying it. When I saw that John was his brother, I thought it must run in the family because I love his music also. David, thanks from my heart for this GREAT CD!! Keep making the wonderful CDs....(please?)
