David Schnug

David Schnug was born in Wayne, NJ in 1985. Living and atttending school there until the age of 21, David moved to Brooklyn in 2006 to pursue his musical career.

Since his arrrival, he has played across the nation in various creative projects (see Performance section). David is a multi-instrumentalist, playing on alto, tenor, and soprano saxophones, as well as flute and clarinet. His music embraces the entire jazz spectrum- from the collective dixiland, to the individualistic small group, to collective free jazz.

A special place in his heart is saved for the legacy of Lennie Tristano, a prime inspiration and influence. The nuance and sophistication of Tristano's playing are at the forefront of David's musical ambitions.

David currently resides in Astoria, Queens, where he teaches, composes, and lives with his wife.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
