Dave studied music theory and composition at Philadelphia's Temple University.
He further studied arrangement and composition with the late pianist/composer
Frank Caruso. As a student of the late guitarist Dennis Sandole, (a mentor to such
greats as George Benson, James Moody and Pat Martino), Dave began to develop
his personal style and talents.

Baker played guitar for "Sweet Rest," an originals group that toured with Darrel
Hall and John Oates." He also performed with the jazz/fusion band "High Treason,"
which had a successful recording for Atlantic Records in 1971. In the late 70's,
Dave founded and played for the "Dave Baker Sextet," a jazz band regularly
featured on Philadelphia's live evening radio show, "WRTI Fridays."

Dave has produced and released 5 CDs on his own label, DAB Music, since 1995
and has received international airplay, critical acclaim and commercial success.

Hi Dave,
Thanks for your kind comments. Which track did you listen to? "Sue's Song" was recorded on an acoustic-electric nylon-stringed guitar, but all the others are steel-strings. I had a listen to your music, and particularly like your reverb. It's a few steps above mine, I think. Is that a Lexicon reverb you are using? It's very sophisticated. I loved your interpretation of "sailing". Your playing reminds me of Ulf Wakenius. We come over to New Jersey once a year (my sister-in-law lives near Clinton), usually in January/February time, so if you are doing gigs around then, perhaps we could come along and see you play live sometime.
Best regards,
Dai

Thanks to the listeners who have placed me on a few of the Top Ten Charts. And I appreciate the thoughtful reviews.
