Born: April 20, 1966
Saxophonist, composer and producer David Mullen (AKA “Mahoney”) is a truly unique voice on his instrument, blending a long lineage of players into a vital and original style.
David first became interested in playing through his father, who was a DJ in the late 50s and 60s, and had an extensive collection of 45s and LPs. “I remember fingering through his collection of jazz, early R&B, and rock n' roll, and just loving the feel and energy of those recordings. The sax was so dominant in all of the styles of music that were happening back then, and I think that's what drew me to the sound of it.”...
....He's paid attention to a wide swath of records from the sax greats, learned the lessons without regurgitating them. A sparkling debut that's well worth your attention. -Chris Spector Midwest record
