     Dave Valentin

Born: 1954 in New York, NY [The Bronx]
Genres: Jazz
Styles: Crossover Jazz, Latin Jazz
Instruments: Flute

Dave Valentin, who has recorded over 15 albums for GRP, combines together the influence of pop, R&B and Brazilian music with Latin-jazz to create a slick and accessible form of crossover jazz. At age nine, Valentin enjoyed playing bongos and congas. He gigged at Latin clubs in New York from age 12 and it was not until he was 18 that he seriously started studying flute. Valentin's teacher Hubert Laws suggested that he not double on saxophone because of his attractive sound on the flute. In 1977 he made his recording debut with Ricardo Marrero's group and he was also on a Noel Pointer album. Discovered by Dave Grusin and Larry Rosen, Valentin was the first artist signed to GRP and he has been a popular attraction ever since.
