Jazz saxophonist and composer Dave Le Febvre (pronounced "Le Fay" in the US) has performed throughout California, Europe and Japan for the past 25 years. Dave has performed with many notable artists and ensembles, including The Don Ellis Orchestra, The Don Piestrup Big Band, Joe Williams, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Wayne Newton, and Robert Goulet, and has appeared at many local jazz festivals such as the Concord Jazz Festival, Berkeley Jazz Festival, Napa Valley Jazz Festival, San Jose Jazz Festival, Concerts at the Museum (Los Angeles) and as a headliner at the Fete de la Musique in Auxerre, France. Dave performs on soprano, alto and tenor saxophones, flute, clarinet and EWI.
As a jazz educator, Dave has taught at UC Berkeley, The Jazzschool, Cal State Maritime, the Jamey Aebersold Clinics, and the San Jose Jazz Camp. He has adjudicated many collegiate and high school jazz festivals throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, and has appeared as guest soloist and clinician in the Bay Area, Japan and France.
Dave Le Febvre has composed and arranged over one hundred original compositions for big band and more than two hundred compositions and arrangements for small ensembles. His works have been performed by Freddie Hubbard, Richie Cole, The BBC Big Band and many others in jazz festivals throughout the world. His experience with groups like The Don Piestrup Big Band and The Don Ellis Orchestra early in his career helped to inspire a creative and ever-evolving approach toward jazz exploration. Whether his music is labeled "fusion" or "straight-ahead", it is always based on a rhythmically intriguing and intensely rich melodic and harmonic concept.
Dave''s new CD release, From Soul to Soul, features original straight-ahead and Latin jazz compositions performed by his quintet. Dave performs on tenor saxophone and EWI with Jean Michel Huré on guitar, Murray Low on piano, Dan Feiszli on bass and Curt Moore on drums.
