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.
September 30th, 2016 David's highly anticipated new Contemporary Instrumental Album titled The Journey will be released worldwide. The leading single Angels is already playing in dance clubs and on rhythmic radio across the US. There are several surprise guests appearing on The Journey.
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.
