Trumpeter Dave Ballou is among the few modern players who straddles the collection between mainstream or progressive jazz and creative improvised musics. Ballou originally went to the Berklee College of Music in Boston, getting his bachelor’s level in 1986 before attaining his master’s in the University or college of New Hampshire in 1991. Since graduation, Ballou continues to be very energetic on the East Coastline picture and in European countries and Japan, playing solo along with little and huge ensembles, big rings, and symphonies. He includes a little but developing discography like a innovator almost specifically for the Danish-based Steeplechase label. Ballou spent some time working prominently with Orange After that Blue, Gunther Schuller, Michael Formanek, Maria Schneider, Andrew Hill, Satoko Fujii, Dave Liebman, Sheila Jordan, Joe Lovano, Michael Jefry Stevens, John Hollenbeck, Oliver Lake, Denman Maroney, Nate Wooley, Jacob Garchik, Tom Rainey, Rabih Abou-Khalil, and Andy Biskin. Lately Ballou continues to be incorporating consumer electronics into his audio, and it has been teaching as an associate teacher at Towson University or college in Maryland.
