NEW YORK JAZZ: DAVID BERKMAN Jazz Concerts
End date: 19.01.2019 22:00
Love for jazz David Berkman was instilled by his father as a child. He wanted his son to become a bass player. True, the father always listened to Oscar Peterson, Tommy Flanagan, Bill Evans, Hank Jones, Winton Kelly – they were all pianists. This determined the fate of David, who also chose to become a pianist.
To date, David Berkman has won 2000 Doris Duke / Chamber Music America New Works Creation and Presentation Grant. He played in many jazz bands, including Cecil McBee, Tom Harrell and The Vanguard Orchestra. He performed and recorded collaborative compositions with numerous jazz luminaries, including Sonny Stitt, Brian Blade, Joe Lovano, Dave Douglas, Ray Drummond, Billy Hart, Dick Oatts, Tony Malaby, Robin Eubanks, Steve Wilson, Chris Potter, Scott Wendholt, Lenny White, Scott Colley, Bill Stewart, Dave Stryker, Fathead Newman, Hank Crawford, and Jane Monheit.
