David Chesky

David Chesky is without doubt a modern-day Renaissance man. He has earned indisputable respect for his unique, eclectic musical compositions spanning both Jazz and Classical idioms in addition to his prominence in the audiophile community for the development of new recording technologies.

Born in Miami, Florida, David Chesky came to New York in 1974 and began his career in music as the composer, arranger and pianist in his own Jazz big band in 1978. With this big band, David performed at every major Jazz club and festival (Storyville, The Village Vanguard, The Newport, JVC and Monterey Jazz Festivals to name a few) and released the album Rush Hour on the Columbia label that year. David, however, did not limit himself to the study of Jazz composition, but continually studied Classical techniques and immersed himself in composing, arranging and orchestrating in both Jazz and Classical styles as first displayed when in 1984 David composed Central Park Morning for the Empire Brass Quintet and Orchestra.
