I really enjoyed listening to your CD. You sounded GREAT and a good mixture of tunes you selected, too! Your sound is sizzling with attitude and execution! Keep it happening. Best to you always!!
-Oscar Brashear (Renowned Jazz Artist)
Dave Norman is one of the most creative musicians that I’ve ever worked with. Working with Dave has allowed me to learn more about myself as a musician, as he invites fellow musicians to add their true character to his paintings, not to mention his amazing trumpet playing.
-Mike O’Neill (famed guitarist for George Benson for over 15 years)
I met Dave in college at the New England Conservatory of Music. From the first time I heard him double tongue on a high A-flat, I knew he was a gifted technician who had tons of chops! Dave also has a sensitive side that respects the music he plays and gives it his own soulful interpretation.
-John Fumo (Hollywood studio & freelance artist, Professor at Cal Arts)
You have always been one of the finest trumpet technicians I ever heard, and I am amazed at your continued drive to take on new challenges. Continued success, Dave!!
-Dan Fornero (Hollywood studio freelance & Lead trumpet for Phil Collins, many Broadway shows, American Idol, Split-Lead in Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band)
Dave is one rare breed of cat! His incredible versatility has finally found its way into a studio/recording artist setting. As a unique, brass playing chameleon, Dave can adapt to any style or genre and emulate any trumpet player that ever lived.This I've heard first hand.
-Bob Gabrielli (New York Globe Music Critic)
Dave truly is a world-class virtuoso, spanning the horizons of stylistic colors and musical genres. There’s not a person alive that wouldn’t enjoy the amazing sounds emanating from his glorious horn. I'm certain you will too!!
