"David Ornette Cherry delivers. This is how modern jazz should sound: a bit of modern 'Multi Kulti' sensibility operates herein with a sophisticated jazz edge."

A Mosaic Of Sound
My music career and education have thrust me into a variety of musical expressions that I call my "mosaic of sound." I have been influenced by music of the world - the music of the spirit created from a powerful tapestry of rhythms and sensual melodies. Yet I am also influenced by the infusion of modern technology into that sound - I am a mix of world and jazz idioms.
In my world, the piano, the keyboard, sounds of nature and numerous instruments of traditional peoples and those who reside in urban society, touch and effect each other with a calming and symbiotic fervor.
I compose with the idea that all exist in a world of harmonies which mirror life evolving away from the chaotic (to the positive). There's not just a co-existence but a melding of forms to produce a single musical expression.
