Update David Bertrand + Follow

Primary Instrument: Flute

Born: January 18, 1977

Relocating to NYC from his native Trinidad & Tobago in 2009, flautist David Bertrand is a graduate of the jazz program of Queens College, studying under Antonio Hart, David Berkman and Michael Mossman. Playing flute, alto flute and piccolo, David is endeavoring to develop a voice on flute that can serve as a valid presence in the contemporary jazz scene. He has recently formed a working quintet to play his original music, an effort to merge hip-hop and folkloric Trinidadian rhythms with the harmonic sensibility of modern writers like Robert Glasper and Stefon Harris.
