Since last year's hurricane Katrina, New Orleans guitarist and vocalist Davy Mooney has had a very eventful musical life. In September of 2005 he was the only resident of Louisiana to participate in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Guitar Competition, performing with Teri Lyne Carrington, Chris Potter, Bob James, and James Genus before a panel of judges that included John Pizzarelli, Bill Frisell, Russell Malone, Pat Martino, and others. Mooney advanced to the finals of the competition and placed third overall, winning a $5000 scholarship.

Mooney then made his way to New York, where he has been residing among a small community of displaced New Orleans jazz musicians in the Astoria area of Queens. Recently, Mooney made a duo guitar recording with one of the judges of the Monk competition, John Pizzarelli, which will be released in early 2007. He has also been featured with the trumpet player Nicholas Payton on the international stage, including a performance in Poland this past October. He has continued to return to his home in New Orleans to perform at Snug Harbor (where he was slated to play on Sunday, August 29th, 2005, the day before Katrina hit!) and other local venues, and he still considers New Orleans his musical and spiritual home, although the excitement and opportunities of New York are second to none....
