Dave Knife Fabris

The music of guitarist David Fabris has been steeped deeply in an eclectic pool of influences... His new CD, Lettuce Prey (Great Winds/Musea), is music that is supported equally by the three legs of Rock, Jazz and Classical. It has the guts and glory of rock heroes like Jimi Hendrix (whose tune, Angel, is featured as a guitar solo on this CD). It possesses the surprise and intrigue of Jazz improvisation (like Ornette Coleman's Sadness - presented here in a jazz quintet format). Lastly, it exudes the intricacy and depth of contemporary Classical music - Ives, Prokofiev, and Khatchaturian are among the composers presented here. But the intent is for the styles to coalesce...that the heavy guitar bass and drum treatment of Ginastera's String Quartet No. 2, for example, maintains the sublimation of the original while making the listener pump their fist in the air!

”Utilizing a formidable lineup of musicians to help him see his vision through, Fabris has delivered a well-crafted effort, which unifies a triptych of styles (jazz, classical, rock), and does so in a way that is uniquely his own.” Rob Ward - NYSOMA

“Knife” is a master of the slide guitar but not just in that blues-like way most often associated with slide guitar…Nothing is overdone or extreme but consistently well-crafted on a few different levels. What I like most about this is that Fabris finds ways of rearranging pieces so that we never know what direction any one piece will take.” Bruce Lee Gallanter - Downtown Music Gallery

Testimonials

“Some teachers take all the potential of fun and turn it into scales and hard work. You, however, basically show me things I want to learn, and then show me how they fit into scales and theories. I find this interesting and cool how many things work out.”
Ryan, Berklee College Of Music, Boston MA

“Dave is doing a great job coaching (the Jimi Hendrix ensemble) – excellent musical input and direction without stifling anyone’s expression…in this ensemble I have been reconnecting with the joy of performing for music’s sake, not to ‘toot one’s own horn’.”
Ilona Tipp, New England Conservatory, Boston MA

“Guitar lessons always gave me something to look forward to…That was something I needed and, believe me, positivity alone can leave a lasting impression on a person in a half hour."
April, Woodside Music Studio, Park Ridge NJ
