Biography

D a v i d   is undeniably one of the world's most exciting trumpetists.  He glides effortlessly through jazz and pop alike. David's new album "BAILA!"will be released in the US and Europe May 18th, 2010. The first single from the album, a pop dance song titled DEEPER LOVE features David and R&B/dance diva CECE PENISTON as they sing together this European influenced blend of Latin Jazz, Pop and House Music. The song sports a haunting trumpet line whose infectious melody will linger long after the song ends. This single has already risen to number 14 on the USA Billboard Chart. The second single from BAILA! is an instrumental contemporary Jazz song called Sunset. This features European top guitarist MARC ANTOINE along with David and plays daily on more than 50 radio stations nationally.
Another upcoming single from the album "Mi Corazon" features David singing a tale of travel through a Spanish town where he happens upon a young lady that deeply affects him. The Flamenco/Salsa mix is as energetic as it is catchy. David sings the chorus in Spanish and even those who don't speak the language understand the memorable romantic meaning. The trumpet work on this song is a truly passionate Spanish performance- so powerful it has probably never yet been heard by this generation. For a limited time, Mi Corazon can be heard here under "Audio". A simple listen will convince you- this is a world class artist.
Also featured on the upcoming album is a David Longoria original piece titled A CASTLE IN SPAIN, and features the guest performance of guitar great OTTMAR LIEBERT along with David.

It was this collaboration that garnered David a nomination for Best Instrumental performance and song on the Hollywood Music Awards. He performed his next new single live on worldwide TV with his band on the televised show from the Kodak Theater complex in Hollywood. David was awarded the Hollywood Music Award for "Best Instrumental Artist" on the show. David was very happy to receive the award saying, "I am so proud to be recognized by this prestigious awards panel. When I think of all the great instrumental artists from Carlos Santana to Kenny G., and even Chris Botti, I am honored to be nominated and of course to win the award."
David was trained as a classical trumpetist before discovering jazz - which opened up the world of improvisation to his music.

Lyrics

Baila! (All She Does Is Dance)

Written By: David Longoria

Every night I watch her gliding gently in the moonlight
Memorizing hypnotizing moves again tonight
I believe I will receive
The pleasure of her company
Maybe tonight… we can let passion take its course this time

Girl, all I need
Is a chance, for you to let me in
Look and you’ll see
We can make a love begin

[Chorus]
But ALL SHE DOES IS DANCE
So forget about romance
I completely bare my soul
No she won’t let her feelings show
When she starts to move
She casts a spell
It comes over you
Yet she will not tell
So you might as well
Leave while you still have half a chance
‘Cause ALL SHE DOES IS DANCE

Close your eyes and listen
While I whisper in your ear
A melody that’s haunting me is what you need to hear
I could do what you need me to
Make perfect love with me and you
Why not tonight… we can let passion Take its course this time
Girl, I surrender
If you’d let me we could make this real
All I remember
Was the way she smiled at me
