About The Event


David J White became a student of the saxophone at age 8 in his hometown of Houston, Texas, where his love for Jazz was nurtured by outstanding musicians and educators such as Conrad O Johnson, Craig Green, and Dr. Robert Morgan. At age 16 he began appearing with local bands in clubs and other musical events. During high school David appeared in Saxophone Journal and other Jazz education periodicals and won several awards including a "DB" award from downbeat magazine. He also performed with Rich Matheson, Billy Harper, Randy Brecker & Eliane Elias, and Lou Marini. David moved to Washington, D.C to attend Howard University and contributed to the Jazz Ensemble's yearly recordings both as a performer and composer/producer. In 1992 David met internationally renowned film maker Haile Gerima and composed, produced and performed the sound track for the critically acclaimed film "Sankofa". He went on to score other films including "Through The Door Of No Return".
