Guitarist DAVID OCCHIPINTI has collected multiple Juno Award nominations including for his CD Forty Revolutions (2007), and Duologue (2003), his first of two duo CDs with saxophonist Mike Murley. A collaboration he made called Bristles (2014)was also nominated for a Juno, and awarded four stars in the internationally acclaimed Downbeat magazine.

He has performed all across Canada, in the U.S., Europe, Japan, and in Italy, where he lived for almost three years.  In the mid ’90s, he

studied in New York with the legendary jazz guitarist and composer, Jim Hall, who called Occhipinti’s Camera CD ”…an absolute gem; his writing is unique, his playing is completely original and stunning…

All of Occhipinti’s CDs feature his own original compositions and his unique voice as both a composer and a guitarist.  On his 2012

release, Camera, he combines elements of contemporary chamber music with improvisation. The recording features David’s compositions and guitar playing, with an ensemble, consisting of clarinet, bassoon, marimba, guitar, violin, viola, cello, and bass. The recording also includes a suite for guitar and string quartet.

This evening’s all-star DAVID OCCHIPINTI TRIO also features MICHAEL DAVIDSON on vibes and bassist DAN FORTIN, performing for your pleasure in the up-close-and-personal ambience of The Home Smith Bar.
