"There is a special group of aspiring guitarists who continuously push the learning envelope to new levels. As evidenced by his playing on Frequent Flyer, Dave Illig is such a guitarist. Don't miss an opportunity to hear Dave soar on the fretboard as easily as he flies a jet plane!" ....Robert Conti
"Beautiful playing... nice tune too." ....Jimmy Bruno
Houston-based jazz guitarist, Dave Illig, is a player on the rise. His lifelong quest to study guitar and his strong work ethic has put him in a position where his skill has become obvious to anyone who hears him play.
Like so many other guitarists, Dave was first attracted to the instrument as a teenager. There are many influences present in Dave's guitar work. Most obvious is jazz legend Wes Montgomery. Also evident is the blues impact and phrasing borrowed from George Benson and
others cut from that cloth. "Destinations" is an appropriate title for this recording. The recording includes some familiar tunes, like Montgomery's "Tear It Down," "Four On Six," and "Sundown," ballad standards like
"When Sunny Gets Blue" and "Willow Weep for Me", Coltrane's "Impressions," "Autumn Leaves," "Blue Bossa," and others. The CD also features a blues duet track with Dave's 17-year-old daughter, Stephanie, an excellent, acoustic fingerstyle guitarist in her own right. For those interested, the CD and audio clips are available from https://www.tradebit.com. One of Dave's primary missions is to share his story with other aspiring jazz guitarists, so that they will be encouraged to stay positive and work hard in their quest to reach their goals. With regards to his philosophy as an artist, perhaps it's best summed up by Mr. Illig's own words: "Being an accomplished guitar player is not out of reach for anyone. It's about playing, not modes, scales, and diatonic harmony. Learn some tunes, learn to jam, have fun!"
