In addition to pre-ordering the album, you can also pledge a bit more and get some interesting “extras,” including everything from a signed copy of the CD to a guitar lesson over Skype or even having me write a song for you or a friend.

CD Release Party !

“A funky sound with Cuban and Brazilian roots, all the finesse of modern jazz, and the lyricism of the great American songwriters” – this is how Paris-based singer-songwriter David Garlitz describes the new direction taken on his next release, the David Garlitz Trio – “Live in Paris,” coming on March 6th, 2015.

After the success of his U.S. “micro-tour” in 2013 and the release of his first LP, “A Poor Man’s Pocket,” in January of the following year, Garlitz found two new partners-in-crime on the Paris jazz scene : drummer Karl Jannuska and bassist Matyas Szandai are two of the most sought-after players in the City of Lights, having played locally, toured internationally, and recorded with the likes of Kurt Rosenwinkel, Brad Mehldau, and Dave Liebman…

The most exciting and unexpected news I received was that SRF Kultur (a branch of Swiss National Radio) had scheduled a 30-minute spot centered around my songs! The piece ran on Friday, January 24th at 4pm. I’m eternally grateful to station programmer Annina Salis, who came across my music via twitter!

You can listen to an mp3 of the spot below (an English translation will be added here soon!):

Micro-tour = Macro-smash!

Hey folks! I’m proud to say that my first U.S. micro-tour was a great success! I played 5 shows in three states, did a live radio broadcast, and shot a music video – whew! It was a lot of fun, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the help of a lot of people. Thanks […]

Micro-Tour U.S.A.

I’ll be doing my first ever solo shows in the U.S. this summer. The “micro-tour” starts with the illustrious Funky Monkey Café in Cheshire, CT, then makes it’s way up to New Hampshire for a show in my hometown and a spot opening for the Boogaloo Swamis at the Cocheco Arts Festival!
