It’s hard to remember a time when pianist / arranger / composer and educator Dave Posmontier wasn’t a vital part of the Philadelphia jazz landscape. He’s been at it for almost 40 years, first hitting the area scene in a big way via an organ trio with drummer Mickey Roker
and saxophonist Bootsie Barnes
. Still recalled fondly in these parts and beyond was the groundbreaking group he began co-leading with brother Rich in 1980. The Postmontier Brothers’ Quintet
played concerts, clubs, and recorded an acclaimed album of original music. Postmontier has never ceased evolving or creating. He’s appeared in concerts and on recordings with John Swana
, Grover Washington Jr.
; James Moody
, David "Fathead" Newman
, toured internationally with his own Klingon Klezmer klezmer ensemble, and has, of late, become increasingly involved in music education.
