Three CD's (37 titles) of famous beloved classical melodies, re-created in an irreverent but truly funky style,with added music sections composed and arranged by David Bluefield and played by his team of talented musicians (Bluefield Bandwidth). Each album represents slightly more irreverence and fun explorations of what might have happened “if Beethoven had electricity to work with”. With the fundamental belief that a beautiful melody lasts forever - there are 37 of those beloved melodies with new “musical note suits” of clothing. For the Classical music purists maybe not so much, but for Jazz lovers a veritable closet full of new outfits for your ears to try on.
Dave's proudest achievement is the American Music Project – created by the great humanitarians Don Drowty and Herb Albert helping to create an album heard by 22 million kids in 71 thousand schools in a desperate attempt to keep music appreciation central to education. Roy Rogers, Dale Evans and Iron -Eyes Cody introduce the songs and Rita Coolidge, Garth Brooks, Mel Blanc (the voice of Bugs Bunny) and Don McLean take turns singing Nursery Rhymes – immediately following are the instrumental versions for Kids to learn how to singalong. It all began when Don Drowty and Iron Eyes Cody developed project PRIDE -Personal Responsibility in Daily Effort for all kids and especially underprivileged Native Americans on Reservations in the Chinle Valley, Apache County, Arizona including Navajo and Hopi Indian tribes. As a result of performing live concerts Dave and Don received the Presidential Achievement Award of Excellence from both United States Presidents Carter and Regan.
From his years as a 70's rock star with Kindred and Three Dog Night, Dave became quite adept at Clavinet and Hammond B3 keyboards and how much they add to the overall sound of that era. Now all these many moons later that music is still very important today and deserves its place as part of a great rhythm section right alongside brass and strings in major orchestra arrangements today. His recent series of MUSIC STORIES reflect those instruments - give a listen and see how they feel perfectly aligned.
