The Dave Allen Quartet brings together some of the best young talent that New York City has to offer. Their debut recording, Untold Stories, documents a well-crafted group sound rarely found in music today. Allen's challenging and lyrical compositions are brought to life by the musicians' subtlety, virtuosity and interplay. The group will be playing music from Untold Stories, as well as new works by Dave Allen.

"Dave Allen makes a fiery and eloquent showing with Untold Stories on Fresh Sound Records. Allen brings daunting chops, full-bodied tone and melodic sensitivity to the table on this all-original debut set." -David Adler - Jazz Times Magazine, March 2006

"An exciting and unique player in the mold of Pat Metheny, Ben Monder, Jonathan Kreisberg and Adam Rogers. Monster chops, harmonic resourcefulness, strong melodic sense, seamless group interaction, considerable compositional talent." -Jazz Guitar Life

"There is a true sensuality to the guitarist?s sound. On the new Untold Stories, he brings a pearly tone to a piece called Searching, unfolding his lines with an edge-of-your-seat stealth." -Village voice

"A number of tracks on Untold Stories have melodies that etched themselves in my mind. The music is full of subtlety. Allen has no seeming limit to his technique, but he always puts it to good musical ends. His lines are full of twists and turns, but I always hear thought and emotion, not just flying fingers."
