ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
DKM is a former "Malibu" band member, an alternative rock group from the 80's. He also played the keys in a classic rock group called "Illegal Tender". Born and raised in the St. Louis, Missouri area, he is no stranger to toasted ravioli, and in case you are interested (as all St. Louisians seem to be), he went to Pattonville High school once upon a time. Learning piano from his father, Kenneth McComber, he never really had any formal training - just liked to make up melodies. Of course you could say his formal training was learning to play Scott Joplin ragtime, Beethoven, Bach and Mozart on his own (because he loved the music so much). These influences come out in his music with melodies such as "Theme In F Minor" (clearly showing signs of Bach/Beethoven influence). Jazz influences can be heard in the dreamy themes of "Moody Blue", quite possibly destined to be a classic! Other colorful jazz riffs can be found in the playful "Mind Of Brick" (where does he get these names?) and more instruments appear in "Lost Emotion" with its flowing array of strings, bells and bass. He got together with two former band members back in the summer of '85 to record "Desert Mirage". While all other music for "DKM Live!" was recorded recently (digitally in 2003), "Desert Mirage" was digitally re-mastered from the original 1985 tape (tried to get all those clicks and pops out!). We thank Mike McGuire for the guitar work and Mark Steitz for the drums on "Desert Mirage" (I can almost hear the camels moving across the desert - wait! - It's just a mirage!).

The piano selections on this CD were originally recorded as background music for my daughter's wedding. I was asked repeatedly after the wedding if my music was available on a CD. There was such an overwhelming response, I added a couple more tracks and produced this CD! So here it is, from my living room to yours - enjoy!

DKM's Dandy!
Here's a lovely little find- a guy from St. Louis who played his own music for his wedding and recorded it too. DKM has a fine touch for simple yet beautiful, light-
classic style melodies. There's a bit of cool jazz in the Brubeck-Guaraldi style too. Check him out if you're in search of easy-flowing background music for reading, writing, and quiet times.

Simply Amazing
Dave is one of the Greats, Being a fan Of Illegal Tender and the Original Kings of Malibu. From drinking late and listening to the music till all hours at Lambros Bar, an exclusive club in St.Louis, I can still hear the passion in Dave’s Music and it brings back memories of simpler times. With the weight of the world now on our shoulders, and all the craziness that surrounds us, it sure helps to relax to the sounds of an old friend. I say “Bravo” my friend keep making music.
