Album Notes
Truly an explorer of wide musical territories, David Woodhead has a melodic and subtle approach to the electric bass. His name appears on over 250 recording projects and he’s worked with many influential artists including Perth County Conspiracy, Stan Rogers, Don Ross, Oliver Schroer, Loreena McKennitt, Gil Scott-Heron, and David Sanborn.
Evolving his playful Confabulation project was a natural move combining key players and ideas from the various worlds he inhabits. It was a dream of his to combine the feeling of open community found in the folk festival scene with the wide musical palettes available in jazz and classical music, and he began writing pieces for the band ranging from minimalist and contemplative to tongue-in-cheek and downright rambunctious.
He’s also been busy gigging with Malagasy guitarist Donné Roberts, veteran nine-piece jazz ensemble Manteca, classical-folk fusioneers Ensemble Polaris, and Tibetan multi-instrumentalist Dorjee Tsering as well as touring internationally with master songwriter James Keelaghan. Getting involved with Toronto’s music improvisation community has led to appearances with his own Precious Little project, at Arraymusic, and at Casey Sokol’s improv soirees as an invited guest.
Coming from a musical household, there were childhood music lessons on piano, violin and recorder, moving on to high school bands, then doing six-nighters in the Ottawa Valley. The most fruitful learning experiences, though, were from working with disciplined studio drummers Geoff Ayre, Dave Lewis, Bob DiSalle and Al Cross, and producers Roma Baran (Laurie Anderson), Arthur Barrow (Frank Zappa), and Stacey Hayden (David Bowie) – all people who took time to craft music and explain their reasons and methods.
