David Garfield

The Los Angeles based keyboard player David Garfield has a long career as a musical director, arranger, composer and producer behind him, and he is still one of the ‘Cats’ that you always see playing local clubs such as The Baked Potato, Cafe Cordiale, or La Ve Lee. You’ll also find him on world tours with big acts like George Benson. Garfield has also performed at Keyboard Magazine’s 20th Anniversary Concert at the NAMM show alongside Bruce Hornsby and Joe Zawinul; played at the Modern Drummer magazine’s anniversary concert with Steve Ferrone; scored the syndicated TV show Sentinel; sat in with Isaac Hayes and The Blues Brothers at a House of Blues benefit concert; written music for the trailer for the Billy Crystal-Robin Williams comedy Father’s Day with James Newton-Howard, and finally the recording sessions for the Tribute to Jeff release. He is the founder of the band Los Lobotomys and Karizma and continues to influence the music world around us.

Another great interview with a nother superb musician. As with all of your interviews, I have only "known" these musicians by their playing and by the liner notes. Its great to actually hear from them and how down to earth and approachable each of these guys (and gal) are.

Thanks again for making a podcast like this possible and available for all of the rest of us!

Hi Carl,

Thanks for the positive feedback! Yes, the Garfield interview provided us with a candid conversation with one of the finest jazz fusions keyboard players in the business. We were truly honored to have him as a guest and to be able to capture a little piece of the music world according to David Garfield.

Thanks for listening Carl!

Carl, David has obviously played with the best and continues to do his thing....collaborating. I can appreciate his making of music along with the help of others around him. I'm amazed at how he isn't a formally trained musician....but yet his caliber is above some of the best players in the world. I'm a self taught keyboardist and can relate to his "ear" approach to music. I just heard Lindsey Buckingham (Fleetwood Mac) on an interview where he states how he doesn't read music...he learned how to play on his own....technique and all. There are alot of natural musicians that never went through training, yet they are making music. Cool.

Theresa:We're glad you liked it. David is one heck of a musician who takes an interesting approach as he works. As you said, he is pretty neat. Lot's of insight....even his collaborations. I'd like to meet him someday. Thanks. Keep in touch and keep listening.
