NYC's Dave Isaacs is Flying in Chicago


Sign in to view read count
Louisiana Red Hot Records recording artist Dave Isaacs will perform a string of dates in the Chicago area in support of his latest release Flying, a highly-acclaimed CD of instrumentals featuring the NYC-based singer-songwriter's skill as a guitarist, improviser, and composer. In a partnership with Parker Guitars (now owned by Chicago-based U.S. Music Corporation), Isaacs used Parker instruments almost exclusively on the CD, and their versatility and tonal range are well-suited to his eclectic musical vision. Dave Isaacs has earned accolades from music writers and radio professionals in Americana, blues, country and jazz, displaying songwriting and musicianship skills that reach past genre boundaries into a rich and deeply personal style. Though formerly best known as a roots artist, singer-songwriter, and frontman for New York country-rock band Jackalope Junction, he is also trained in classical guitar with an advanced degree from NYC's Manhattan School of Music. 20th Century Guitar magazine wrote, “few guitarists gigging today are as adept at merging classical guitar technique with the cutting edge frontiers of instrumental rock-jazz" while The Critical Review simply calls Isaacs “a master of instrumental guitar.....a prodigy of sorts." A semi-finalist in the 2003 Mountain Stage NewSong competition, Isaacs has drawn equally high praise for his songwriting; music director Dave Stratton at WQBR in State College, PA called his work “a breath of fresh air in a cynical world....[Dave] writes songs we wish we all could, about the universals that affect us all." ] For more information about Dave Isaacs visit www.daveisaacs.com.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
