David J White became a student of the saxophone at age 8 in his hometown of Houston, Texas, where his love for Jazz was nurtured by outstanding musicians and educators such as Conrad O Johnson, Craig Green, and Dr. Robert Morgan. At age 16 he began appearing with local bands in clubs and other musical events. During high school David appeared in Saxophone Journal and other Jazz education periodicals and won several awards including a 'DB' award from downbeat magazine. He also performed with Rich Matheson, Billy Harper, Randy Brecker & Eliane Elias, and Lou Marini. David moved to Washington, D.C to attend Howard University and contributed to the Jazz Ensemble's yearly recordings both as a performer and composer/producer. In 1992 David met internationally renowned film maker Haile Gerima and composed, produced and performed the sound track for the critically acclaimed film 'Sankofa'. He went on to score other films including 'Through The Door Of No Return'. 'Rememory' is his first release on his own label. This CD represents different influences and moods of the artist. It was produced and mixed entirely by David in his private studio (dark piano studios) with David serving as producer performer and engineer. He also created all the artwork for the project and website. This CD marks his return to the performing arts and will soon be followed by appearances and other music projects.
