Where We Come From is born from the same devouring essence of jazz, which absorbs all the nearby influences and metabolizes them within the same schemes of freedom and synergy that have made music evolve in the last century. When all of this is done with honesty, it always works.
This is a debut album filled with originality, which faithfully expresses how this is a musician capable of embracing almost everything. Listening to it, one perceives that David comes from classical jazz, but also from flamenco, electronic sounds, Mediterranean music or rock. Too many labels.
The truth is that David has an open and promising look as a composer and multi-instrumentalist, a very moving sincerity that demonstates an exquisite taste when it comes to intertwine the musical styles that have influenced him the most, thus achieving a personal and original voice that is so hard to find.
Musicians from different parts and cultures of the world have also made possible the birth of this work. Collaborations such as those of the Tunisian violinist and singer Larbi Sassi, the trumpeters Jorge Vistel (Cuba) and Miron Rafajlovic (Bosnia), the singer and saxophonist Antonio Lizana (Spain), the percussionist Shayan Fathi (Iran) or the dancers Nino de los Reyes and Daniel Navarro, have enriched the sound of the band, giving it a unique and special character. Therefore, it is not surprising that Where We Come From has quickly become one of the best-selling albums among jazz lovers in Spain.
