If you're looking to rock, shag, or throw down the rap, then move on to the next review. On the other hand, if you want well-crafted, silky-smooth, deliciously rainy-day romantic, day-dreamy, heartfelt, ineffable keyboards with perfection, stop here. Bach has seamlessly meshed twelve songs into a mood of inspiration, healing, and the musician's melancholy world of introspective visions. It is solo piano, then a full augmentation of synths, and then there's sensuous sax, a mosaic of percussion, fretless bass, wailing atmospheric and lazy stream guitar, with ethnic flute.
Best of all these twelve sonic paintings are David Bach interwoven everywhere. Sensitive, slick, yet oh so warm, fleeting, gliding, lilting from indigo room to late afternoon sunroom, a musical journey of gentle determination and the joy of just being alive. A must for those who must mellow out with a slightly, edged groove, over a fine wine. Ladies, this CD, is for you. Guys, she'll love the passion this CD exudes.
Add this to your collection for that unforgettable...well, listen for yourself.
-- John W. Patterson

Bach has found great success already being voted "Best Instrumental Band" from Music Monthly Magazine readers poll three years in a row (1999-2001). He was a BET "Jazz Discovery Showcase" winner in 1999 and was nominated in ’99 for a Wammie for Best Instrumentalist and Best CD (Washington Area Music Award) and received a gold record (he has two) for co-writing with singer Crystal Waters.. He was done a ton of studio work for musicians like Janet Jackson to Everything But The Girl. Bach has also composed and scored music for Fox TV, The Discovery Channel, PBS and others. If you like Keiko Matsui and/or Sam Cardon you’ll like David Bach. His music has a lot of drama to it with a influence from classical, New Age and Jazz. For you more Smooth Jazz fans there is a track for you, too "Chill," which happens to be one of my favorite on the CD because it has that Pop/Jazz sound with a nice hook featuring the saxophone. The rest is more on the story telling front. Painting pictures for your mind in a comforting, naturist sort of way. Take "Between The World." A track like this would be perfect for a nature channel. That is probably why he is successful creating music for the Discover Channel. "Remember Then" has a nice solo piano theme that reminds me of David Benoit’s playing ability. "Seventh Sun" is a good up tempo drama flavored piece that makes me think of Matsui instantly. Bach uses all of his musical influences for style and David Wells adds the sax licks to perfection on this story. Bach’s playing his ass off with jazz licks galore. Nicely done. If you are into the classical stage the title track, which is short gives you that nugget. "Four Corner" is another Matsui type of song. Extremely dramatic. Bach’s music is very good, just most of it would be hard to classify as jazz, but who cares. From a musicians stand point it is interesting tunes.
We can do a wide variety of concerts events and festivals with our diverse repetoire. From Jam to Nu Jazz and ambient. The show engages the audience with a high energy level of original and familiar instrumental tunes.
A festival set might be 60 or 90 miniutes long but we can play longer or shorter. Sometimes the band will perform two 60 minute sets with one break for festival work and 3 hour sets with 2 breaks for a club set For Corporate Events we can tailor make the sets and music.
