David White and Big Neighborhood

Guitarist and composer David White has been turning the heads of those who have heard him for a number of years.

Raised in South America and Spain, David is a critically acclaimed guitarist and innovative composer working in a highly original modern vein. He has spent the last 18 years in New York and Boston working with George Garzone, Valery Ponomarev, Jeff Ballard, John Lockwood, and Tim Armacost, among many others. He has recorded 6 CDs as a leader, toured extensively throughout North America and his music has been widely reviewed and acclaimed for incorporating diverse influences from Frank Zappa to Paul Hindemith to Led Zeppelin as a springboard for arrangement and improvisation, prompting All About Jazz -Seattle to write “White has staked out his own personal piece of the modern jazz landscape”. His compositions push boundaries of form, use odd meters dexterously, and range from post-modern mainstream to inspired free ensemble improvisation. He makes his home now in the Pacific Northwest and works frequently with his own band, Big Neighborhood. Big Neighborhood released it's first CD in 2005, the critically acclaimed and Grammy round nominee, “Neighbors”.
