David E. Feldman grew up playing the baby grand piano in his parents home and singing as a featured soloist in religious school. His father, Lawrence L. Feldman, was a classically trained woodwind (sax, clarinet and flute) player and terrific jazz sax, clarinet and flute player as well as a sought-after teacher. His aunts Molly, Bea and Kate were also outstanding musicians.
As a teenager in the 70s, David played piano and guitar and sang a bit with local rock bands and attended a creative arts camp where he met and jammed with many fine musicians and singers.
In the late 70s, David began playing blues and jazz flute with friends, as part of duos and in blues groups in New Jersey.
In recent years, David has studied piano with master teacher and Ph.d. Mark Polishook, and played with the fine jazz bass player Anton Taylor. Currently he plays solo piano gigs, with or without vocals, spanning the 1940s-1970s.
His influences include: Fats Waller, Art Tatum, Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans, Chick Corea, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong and many others.
