David Garfield

David Garfield's mission statement is “I make music.” And “make music” he does, as a world-renowned keyboard artist, producer, and composer. Be it jazz, rock, funk, or world beat -- he is the creative force behind the production of many internationally acclaimed recordings.

David started his career with jazz greats such as Willie Bobo, Freddie Hubbard, and Tom Scott in the 70s. After being on the LA scene for several years, he moved into the vast studio world during its heyday and earned a reputation for fine craftsmanship and versatility. This work eventually led to composing opportunities for television, film, and commercials (NBC/Disney/Nippon Television/RTL Germany).

During the 80s Garfield arranged and produced many top Japanese artists, and went on to produce his own projects for release in Japan. For the past 20 years, he has enjoyed continued popularity and success in that part of the world.

David's access to top studio musicians and state of the art equipment led him to start his own production company, Creatchy Productions. His Creatchy Records label soon followed.

His first international release on Creatchy, “Tribute to Jeff”, featured 78 musicians and artists, including Don Henley, Eddie Van Halen, Michael McDonald, and Richard Marx, a virtual who's who of the music industry. Critically acclaimed worldwide, this project reached the top ten charts in Japan (Pop) and the U.S

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
