We'll be playing a mix of Brazilian, Latin, and contemporary jazz. Come early and picnic before the show!

David Boswell – Contemporary Jazz Guitarist

Alvas Showroom, 1417 W 8th Street, San Pedro, CA

David Boswell - Guitar Mb Gordy - Drums Chad Edwards - Piano/Keyboards Rufus Philpot - Bass

  “A guitar innovator, a brilliant virtuoso, David has long had a musical vision of his own, and he has developed into a significant composer. While the music on Windows can be called modern jazz and at times shows the influence of Pat Metheny (who made a strong impact on Boswell in his early days), the results are quite original and beyond simple classification as anything but creative music. Often cinematic, the playing is lyrical and melodic, and the performances are unpredictable, surprising, and filled with rich melodies and colorful ensembles. His music has often been heard on smooth jazz radio stations, yet it really is beyond description, fusing together his previous musical experiences with his own fresh ideas to form a new type of 21st century jazz.” ~ Scott Yanow – Jazz Historian/Journalist/Author of The Great Jazz Guitarists: The Ultimate Guide
