The Dave Longfellow Ensemble is an instrumental quintet focusing on the performance of aggressive/progressive Latin jazz music. The DLE is dedicated to creating new musical expressions involving the steel pans, and to spreading the beauty and versatility of these instruments to new audiences.

Major musical influences on the DLE range a broad spectrum from Debussy to the Dave Matthews band, and include: Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Jaco Pastorious, The Beatles, John Coltrane, Michel Camilo, and folk music from around the world.

Members of the DLE have performed with some of the most visible and respected members of the steel drum world, including: Dr. Ellie Mannette, Andy Narell, Jeff Narell, Robbie Greenidge, Ray Holman, Ken “Professor” Philmore, Dr. Christopher Tanner, Phil Hawkins, Darren Dyke, and Pan Ramajay.

Playing extensively in West Virginia, Maryland, Ohio and Pennsylvania, the DLE has the versatility to blow the roof off of a packed club or to entertain hundreds at large festivals. Live performances consist of original music as well as a myriad of cover songs arranged by band members. In concert, the DLE combines modern grooves, jazz harmonies, infectious melodies, and rhythms of the African Diaspora to produce a high-energy show filled with improvisation and spontaneity.

This is a great cd
This cd is one of the greatest cd's of all time it is worth more than 15 dollars I have had the oportunity of seeing DLE live and I don't think they could capture the mood, the feel, the relaxing beat, the warm energy, and the musicianship of DLE better on a cd. i would recomend it to people who are or are not fans of the steal drum it will absolutely blow you away.

This album is a turning point.
This album is going to change the face of popular/jazz music. It's going to bring back a time when jazz, or some form of it, was at the forefront of popular music. A time when people liked music not because MTV told them to, but because it was actually GOOD. I highly recommend this album to anyone who wants to hear something fun and DIFFERENT

DLE is thebomb.com
This album is full of one-on-a-kind compositions written by the man himself, Dave Longfellow. Along with the amazing writing comes progressive, in-your-face pan solos and lush, unique harmonies...the band's execution of the music is very SOLID and TIGHT...... this album is definitly a 'must-buy', wheather your into jazz, funk, latin, calypso, or anything else.
