The "It" Guy

It's hard not to dig local saxophonist David Caceres

As for future CDs, Caceres, who also teaches privately at the University of Houston, hopes to release another this spring, since he already has several tracks in the can from other sessions originally intended for his second album.

Unfortunately for Houston, Caceres might not be around much longer. "I always think about going back [to New York City] because I feel as if that would be taking it to the next level," Caceres says. "When you're in New York, the best players in the world are there. Not to put down any of the players here in Houston, but there are so many players in New York, it's like having 20 Dennis Dotsons, 20 Sebastian Whittakers, 20 Joe LoCascios. I know the way it would have to happen is move there, establish myself in the city, get some exposure there and start taking lessons and really learn how to play with those guys up there. It's a battle between the integrity of the music and the quality of life."

David Caceres possesses those intangibles very few jazzers his age do.
