Biographie de David Aaron


Canadian-born, David Aaron, generally stumbles along as a saxophonist, composer, arranger and producer and has scored music for a number of short films and live theater pieces, including works in the Fringe Theatre Festival. He also regularly works as a freelance saxophonist, including past stints with blues/punk innovators Dee Pop's Private World, Kaleta's Zozo Afrobeat, super-rockin' ska band, Bigger Thomas, international cabaret act, Les Funky Bitches Fantastique and New Orleans Mardi Gras collective, The Royal American Social Aid and Pleasure Club. He has also been featured as a soloist with the New York Centre Symphony Orchestra.

David has been booed off the stage of The Apollo, as well as having actually performed at venues like The Knitting Factory (NYC, Brooklyn & Hollywood), The Bottom Line, Tonic, 55 Bar, Brooklyn Museum, Minton's Playhouse, The Bitter End, Fillmore NY@Irving Plaza, Tonic, Lincoln Center "Out Of Doors" Festival, B.B. King Blues, all 3 of CBGB's performance spaces, as well as the 2013 CBGB Festival. He also once had the distinct pleasure of repeatedly marching across the stage of the Metropolitan Opera as a (scantily clad) spear carrier of the Egyptian army in "Aida".

He regularly collaborates with artists and musicians such as Brad Jones, Dee Pop, E.J. Rodriguez, Oswaldo Amorim Filho, modern dance choreographer, Chris Ferris, Mai Lingani (Burkina Faso), Sam Furnace, Curtis Fowlkes, Bill Ware, Kitty Brazelton and John Sinclair.

Aaron is also the creator/producer of the Improv At The Khyber series in Halifax, Canada, which has run in conjunction with the Atlantic Jazz Festival. The series features internationally-known musicians, in an intimate gallery venue, and encourages them to freely improvise and explore with other players, many of whom have never met before.
