Dave is a popular & well known figure on the international jazz scene, having recorded 13 albums as leader with various lineups. He cut his teeth with NYJO, Cleo Laine, Roadside Picnic and Mezzoforte and went on to work with Jim Mullen, Ray Charles, Martin Taylor, Itchy Fingers, Frank Sinatra, Salif Keita, Jimmy Smith, Joe Locke, Kyle Eastwood, Jamie Cullum, Stan Tracey, Matthew Herbert, Chico Chagas and the BBC Big Band to name only a few.

Oliver Nelson was perhaps the greatest jazz orchestra composer and arranger of the postwar era, and a great tenor player whose album Blues And The Abstract Truth is a masterpiece of post bop cool!
