"His guitar lines are fluid and melodic, blessed with the raw edge that comes from listening to the ensemble sound rather than merely concentrating on chops."
- Ben Watson, Hi Fi News

David White has been turning the heads of those who have heard him for a number of years.

Raised in South America, New York and Spain, David is a critically acclaimed guitarist and innovative composer working in a highly original modern jazz vein. He has spent the last 20 years in Seattle, New York and Boston working with George Garzone, Valery Ponomarev, Jeff Ballard, John Lockwood, Tim Armacost, Stomu Takeishi, among many others. He has recorded 7 CDs as a leader, toured extensively throughout North America, and his music has been widely reviewed and acclaimed for incorporating diverse influences from Frank Zappa to Paul Hindemith to Led Zeppelin, all as a springboard for arrangement and improvisation, prompting All About Jazz - Seattle to write "White has staked out his own personal piece of the modern jazz landscape." His compositions push boundaries of form, use odd meters dexterously, and range from post-modern mainstream to inspired free ensemble improvisation. He co-led the critically acclaimed band "Big Neighborhood" (Origin Records) which received Grammy consideration in 2006. He makes his home in the Bay Area (USA).
