Dave Allen

Performer's Website

Dave Allen is one of the more distinctive voices on his instrument today. He has continually sought to forge a unique vision through his playing and writing, one that features lyrical melodies with lilting, complex rhythms and rich, intricate harmonies. At the age of 16, Allen was already recognized by Guitar Player Magazine as a talent to watch. Born in Philadelphia, Allen moved to New York in 1988 to attend the Manhattan School of Music. Leading his own groups for the past 16 years, Allen has increasingly made his presence felt on the New York scene. In the past few years Allen has worked with many of the most exciting young players in New York City, including Chris Cheek, Seamus Blake, Sam Newsome, Donny McCaslin, Mark Shim, John O'Gallagher, Loren Stillman, Tyshawn Sorey, Miguel Zenon, Ted Poor, and many others
