For more than three decades, Grammy and Emmy nominated guitarist, composer and producer David Becker has continued to define himself as one of the best and most unique voices in jazz and contemporary music by combining diverse influences and a passion for the new and different, and his ability to play for the present while always keeping an eye on the past and future. He has led the critically acclaimed David Becker Tribune to a worldwide audience by performing in more than 35 countries. Over the years, the DBT has shared the stage with such celebrated jazz acts as Miles Davis, Chick Corea, Michael Brecker and many more.
German television journalist Roger Willemsen (ZDF) called him "One of the best Jazz guitarists ever." Jazz Podium and Downbeat called him "A poet on the Jazz Guitar." Jazz Thing and Gitarre & Bass called him a virtuoso. David has released 15 recordings many topping the jazz and contemporary music charts. The DBT has performed at some of the most prestigious venues throughout the world including London's BARBICAN CENTRE, Rotterdam's DE DOELEN, New Yorks MADISON SQUARE GARDEN and BIRDLAND. The DBT has also appeared at several international jazz festivals including The Monterey Jazz Festival.
He has also collaborated with Space Channel to create Planets - a musical voyage through the stars, on a spaceship made of sound, improvised in the moment, live on stage at the historic Camille Playhouse in Brownsville, Texas.
