DAVID LONGORIA sings and plays the trumpet. 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. The song sports a haunting trumpet line whose infectious melody will linger long after the song ends. This single rose to number 14 on the USA Billboard Chart.
The tone of his trumpet is reminiscent of that of both Herb Alpert and Arturo
Sandoval. He is an exceptional trumpet player and he demonstrates his
expertise continually with each song that he performs. He is also a very
skilled vocalist who communicates wonderfully with an audience.
