David Caceres Quartet

We call David Caceres a jazz musician, but the label seems a little too small to encompass everything he does. He handles alto sax duties with a variety of his own groups, including the David Caceres Quartet, performing today at Cezanne. He sings; a fluke gig while he was at the Berklee College of Music put him in front of a microphone as a wedding singer, and now he sings as much — and as well — as he plays. He records; he's been a sideman on numerous albums, including La Mafia's Grammy award-winning Un Millon de Rosas, and he has four CDs to his credit. He writes; each of his albums features some of his original compositions. He teaches; he's been on the faculty of the High School of the Performing and Visual Arts and the University of Houston. And he carries on a family legacy; relatives include a grandfather, jazz violinist Emilio Caceres; a great-uncle, big-band saxophonist Ernie Caceres; and a brother, vocalist/bassist Anthony Caceres (both Ernie and Anthony had stints with the Glenn Miller Orchestra). On the other side of the family, his grandfather Manuel Rangel owned a Latin music label. Expect a heady mix of jazz standards and original compositions. Caceres, known as a powerful yet nuanced performer, shares the stage with Jose Miguel Yamal (piano), Anthony Sapp (bass) and Daleton Lee (drums).
