Album Notes
This album comprises melodically lyrical jazz with a rich harmonic foundation. The compositions draw from David's varied background in classical, jazz, latin, popular and African music, combining these influences into seamlessly integrated arrangements.
David's love of popular songs from his childhood led him to re-harmonize and re-arrange 'Good Vibrations' and 'My Friends' by the Beach Boys and Red Hot Chili Peppers respectively for an improvisational context. The performances by some of South Africa's finest jazz musicians on 'Flight of Fancy' allow melodies to soar over a strong, yet sensitively interactive rhythmic foundation. Dynamic improvisations reveal myriad melodic opportunities available over complex harmonic beds.
