David Ake Group


Doug Webb Sound & Time

David Ake - piano
Dave Borgo- saxes, clarinet
Todd Sickafoose - upright bass
Dave Wittman - drums

Sound & Time by pianist David Ake and his group, is a fresh blending of straight-ahead jazz with modern harmonic concepts. Ake's quartet soars boldy on the set. While Ake leads the charge steadily into the dark unknown territory, the group swings independently, with Dave Borgo on saxes and clarinet, Todd Sickafoose on upright bass, and Dave Wittman on drums.

David Ake's piano playing has a style all its own. While steeped in the nuances of what came before, he is always looking ahead, pulling the listener with him towards new ground.
