David Longoria

Primary Instrument: Trumpet

Born: January 7, 1971

He grew up listening to trumpeters Al Hirt, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Herb Alpert, Raphael Mendez and other musicians like Oscar Peterson, Buddy Rich, Pete Fountain, Jaco Pastorius and many others. He credits each of them with “adding a little something” to his sound. He glides effortlessly through jazz and pop alike. David's new album “BAILA!”will be released this summer. The first single from the album, a pop dance song titled DEEPER LOVE features David and R&B/dance diva CECE PENISTON as they sing together this European influenced blend of Latin Jazz, Pop and House Music.
