David SmithTrumpet

A trumpeter with a style as unique for composition as for improvisation.

David Smith is a Canadian-born trumpeter currently residing in New York City. His debut album as a leader, “Circumstance”, was released in October of 2006 on the Fresh Sound New Talent label (FSNT 267), and a followup is forthcoming in early 2010. While the roots of his music are in classic jazz, he combines elements of classical harmony and counterpoint resulting in a very original compositional style. His approach to the trumpet is also unique, intervallic and harmonically sophisticated yet lyrical and emotional. In addition to his own recordings, he is featured as a sideman on numerous recordings including for Fresh Sound New Talent (Alan Ferber Nonet, Delphian Jazz Orchestra) Steeplechase (Kim Bock Quartet, Russ Spiegel Sextet) ArtistShare (Jon Gordon) and Interplay Records (Cecilia Coleman Quintet) as well as numerous independent releases (Paul Carlon Octet, Sarah Lynch, Numinous).
