Who influenced you to listen to jazz
I've always listened to jazz! It was in my home growing up. My parents listened Nat Cole, Sarah Vaughn, Count Basie, John Coltrane, Lester Young, Billie Holliday,Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller Artie Shaw, Billy Eckstine, Miles Davis and so many more. My brother Derek was the founder and original leader of the Washington, D.C. group, "The Young Senators". So I've always loved music and jazz! My cousin is the the famous vibraphonist, Jay Hoggard and he helped me delve a lot deeper into the idiom!

Tell us about yourself
King David is an internationally renown singer and entertainer who resides in New York City. King has performed for Presidents, heads of state and captains of industry, always supplying a first-class, unforgettable show business experience!
Mr. David was born in Washington, D.C. He is the son of King David, a legendary attorney, civil rights activist and minister. His mother was Virginia Cherry David, a noted historian who was head of the Presidential Papers Section, of the Manuscript Division, at the Library of Congress. King was educated in the public and private schools of Washington, D.C. attending Gonzaga College H.S. and the Duke Ellington H.S. for the Performing Arts. King continued his education at CCNY of the City University of New York and Cornell University where he majored in Industrial and Labor Relations and Pre-Law.
Mr. David became involved with music from an early age and started playing saxophone at age 9. His first teacher was the acclaimed writer producer and Grammy Award Winner, Freddie Perrin, (Freddie was one of the four songwriters known as “The Corporation” who penned the first four hit records by the Jackson Five; he also was the head of Solar Records, produced, The Sylvers and The Whispers, and wrote produced and received a Grammy Award for Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive”). King added drums to his repertoire and at age twelve did his first recording session with Derek David and the Barons (Derek is King’s brother). While a teenager King worked at the famous “Carter Baron Amphitheater” where he was able to watch some of the biggest names in show business, 3X’S AWEEK! Acts like, Smokey and the Miracles, Diana Ross, The Supremes, The Four Tops, The Temptations, Dionne Warwick, Al Green, The Barkays, Booker T and the MG’s !!!King met Melvin Franklin and Dennis Edwards of the Temptations ( King was able to later perform on the same bill with Dennis as a member of the Platter’s). He also met Al Green! These are cherished lifelong memories. Also while a teenager he and his brother were Jackie Wilson’s guests backstage at The Loewe’s Palace Theatre! Another experience that had a lifelong and profound effect upon King!

Mr. David came to New York and started singing forming two bands The Coup and Joe Steel, which received much notoriety in the NY tri-state area.These both were hard rock bands long before “Living Colour” From the attention that he garnered as a result of fronting these two bands, with his dynamic, powerful voice and charismatic stage presence, he was brought to the attention of the “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame” group The Platters. King joined the Platters in late ’87 and stayed with the group until the unfortunate and untimely demise of the original lead singer Tony Williams. The Platters were a great opportunity for King, for it allowed him to tour the world, appear nightly at some of the biggest venues in the world and allowed him to hone his craft.
King was also was a licensed stockbroker, investment advisor, insurance agent and insurance broker, working for large as well as small entities. In 2005, as a result of his Wall St. forays, King produced his breakout CD, KING DAVID and the Talk of the Town!- “Mr. Success/ Chicago” to great critical acclaim!. The CD is now being played across the country on approximately 80 stations; and is now “breaking” on the European continent! For King David, and The Talk of The Town, the future looks extremely bright and the “sky’s the limit”!!

1987- 1992 Member of the “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame” group, “The Platters”

New York vocalist King David makes no excuses for his love of good old swing music, the sound of the big bands and the music from the 1930s to the 1960s, as he borrows from The Great American Songbook in reinterpreting and updating terrific old standards on Mr. Success Chicago, with his Talk of The Town backup band. David is sometimes seen as a throwback to the past; influenced by the music of such legends as Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Bobby Darin, David may seem out of place in today's world.
The album was originally to be titled Mr. Success, however after being introduced to the people, music and sounds of Chicago by producer/arranger Jim Martin, David was so taken by the “Windy City” that he added Chicago to the title. One of the turning points for David was the level of talent that Martin was able to call on for the backup band. The Talk of The Town band comprises an all-star list of jazz musicians, including trumpeter Rob Parton (Rob Parton's Jazztech Big Band), saxophonist Marc Colby, trombonist Tom Garling, drummer Bob Rummage and pianist Larry Novak. The band also includes a nine-piece string section for a touch of class.
Gifted with a soothing baritone voice, David can belt out a swinging number with a measure of power, but just as easily mellows out when a slow ballad calls for it. Starting with a swinging big band number, David opens up with a brassy read of "On the Street Where You Live," featuring a lively solo from Colby. The swing continues on Harry Warren's "Lullaby of Broadway," and then calms down on the Anthony Newley classic, "Who Can I Turn To." The other soft ballad of note is Harold Arlen's "The Gal That Got Away," where David is especially warm in his approach to the lyrics.
David does not shy away from belting out a song; in fact, it is his assertive approach on songs including "Come Back to Me" and "Here I'll Stay" that distinguishes his singing style from other vocalists. The music ends with a staple from the Sinatra songbook, and a favorite of David's, "Mr. Success"—the perfect finale, drawing on the band for some fine instrumentals in a swinging piece of music that features the singer at his best.
With charts from the past and some swing from the present done Chicago style, King David revives a selection of beautiful songs and puts his own stamp on many oft recorded standards. On Mr. Success Chicago, he marks a successful musical excursion into the swinging music of the past. Somehow, it seems befitting for a man often seen in a smart suit and wearing a fedora.

Track listing: On The Street Where You Live; Lullaby of Broadway; Who Can I Turn To?; Come Back To Me; Artificial Flowers; Here I'll Stay; Haven't We Met; The Gal That Got Away; Don't Rain On My Parade; Mr. Success.
Personnel: King David: vocals; Larry Novak: piano; Bob Rummage: drums; Stewart Miller: bass; Frank Portelese: guitar; DeDe Sampaio: percussions; Kirk Garrison: trumpet; Rob Parton: trumpet; Tom Garling: trombone; Tim Coffman: trombone; Marc Colby: tenor saxophone; Tim McNamara: saxophone; Bob Frankitch: saxophone; Thomas Yang: Concert Master; Rika Seko: violin; Katherine Hughes: violin; Michael Shelton: violin; Carl Davies: violin; Jeri-Lou Zike: violin; Steven Houser: cello; Richaro Yeo: cello; Marsha Labella: harp; Geo Blanchett: tympani.

First Wooden Clock by: BENJAMIN BANNEKER 

Using as a model a pocket watch he had borrowed from a merchant or traveler, Banneker carved wooden replicas of each piece and used the parts to make a clock that struck hourly. He completed the clock in 1753, at the age of 21. Due to its precision (it struck every hour, on the hour, and continued to do so nearly forty years) the clock brought fame to young Banneker. Thus he began a watch and clock repair business. The clock continued to work until his death. Read more....

Put it this way: Jazz is a good barometer of freedom… In its beginnings, the United States of America spawned certain ideals of freedom and independence through which, eventually, jazz was evolved, and the music is so free that many people say it is the only unhampered, unhindered expression of complete freedom yet produced in this country.~~~Duke Ellington
