David Garfield with Alex Ligertwood

David Garfield
David Garfield’s mission statement is “I make music.”  And “make music” he does, as a world-renowned keyboard artist, producer, and composer. Be it jazz, rock, funk, or world beat – he is the creative force behind the production of many internationally acclaimed recordings.

David started his career with jazz greats such as Willie Bobo, Freddie Hubbard, and Tom Scott in the 70’s. After being on the L.A. scene for several years, he moved into the vast studio world and earned a reputation for fine craftsmanship and versatility. This work led to composing opportunities for television, film, and commercials (NBC / Disney / Nippon Television /
RTL Germany).

His first international release on Creatchy Records, “Tribute to Jeff,” featured 78 musicians and artists including Don Henley, Eddie Van Halen, Michael McDonald, and Richard Marx, a virtual who’s who in the music industry.

Garfield continues to have ongoing music relationships with George Benson (he is frequently Benson’s Musical Director), Boz Scaggs, and Natalie Cole. Over the years, he has recorded with Cher, Spinal Tap, The Rippingtons, Ratt, Larry Carlton, and Smokey Robinson and has performed live with Michael Bolton, The Blue Brothers, Brenda Russell, and Rick Braun to name a few.

Alex Ligertwood
There’s something deep in the soul of Scotland that produces great blues and R&B singers. Some of wold’s top vocalists over the years, from Rod Stewart to Maggie Bell to Santana’s lead vocalist Alex Ligertwood, have come out of that musically fertile land.

One of the first to spot Ligertwood’s big soulful voice was Jeff Beck. He promptly made Ligertwood lead vocalist for the Jeff Beck band in the early seventies. Next up was a stint with another legendary British band, Brian Auger’s Oblivion Express. Alex recorded four albums with Auguer’s jazz-rock unit, delivering scorching vocals, playing rhythm guitar, as well as co-writing the albums with Brian Auger.  During the same period, Ligertwood performed and recorded with fellow Scottish soul-mates, the Average White Band. His lead vocals are featured on three Average White Band recordings.

In the late seventies, Ligertwood served as vocalist/guitarist and co-writer with Narda Michael Walden Band before joining Santana in 1979. It has proven to be an ideal match. Ligertwood brings a vocal intensity that feeds the volcanic playing of Carlos Santana. He has recorded and co-wrote eight albums for Santana.

His vocal talents have also been featured with Spyro Gyra, Ben E. King, Didier Lockwood, Carly Simon, The Dixie Dreggs, Michelle Colombier, Pat Simmons of the Dobbie Brotheres, Jeff Lorber, and many others.
