Dave Flippo

FLIPPOMUSIC has presented the unique, original jazz of Dave Flippo since 1992 when it introduced Chicago to its “globaljazz” world fusion with two CD's on Southport Records: Tendrils of Light and Ganesh. Since then, Flippo's development as a singer has spawned two additional CD's of vocal compositions,The Heart is Strong and Tao Tunes, to be released in September 25, 2011. Tao Tunes returns to Flippo's “world-theme” with the setting of ancient Chinese texts -- the Tao Te Ching.
