David Ullmann David Ullmann

David Ullmann is a guitarist, composer, teacher, and lifelong New Yorker. A graduate of the New School Jazz program, he has performed extensively in and around New York City, including at CBGB’s, The Blue Note, Wetlands, The Knitting Factory, and 55 Bar. He has also performed at numerous festivals, including the JVC Jazz Festival, Artwallah, Sono Arts, and The Fringe Festival. His debut album, Hidden, was released in 2005: “Hidden is an exciting record that reflects restless creativity. Each track builds on the next and works to keep the listener on guard and engaged. This dynamism leads to a satisfying sense of taking a journey as the record plays.” (All About Jazz)

David also composes music for film, most recently completing the score for “The Happy House,” a feature filn by D.W. Young. David’s first film project, Atsushi Funahashi’s “Echoes,” was well received by critics and film festivals, winning three Jury and Audience Awards at Annonay International Film Festival in France and the High Hope Award at the Munich International Film Festival.

His second album Falling, will be released this summer, featuring all original compositions and a new group that includes Chris Dingman (vibes), Gary Wang (bass), Karel Ruzicka Jr. (sax), and Vinnie Sperrazza (drums). David is simultaneously working on two other albums. Stay tuned for details.

Beginning Fall 2012, David will be teaching guitar at John Jay College in Manhattan.

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.
