David Pope
Soul of the Elephant
Open Loop Jazz

Saxophonist David Pope approach to music resembles that of another sax man with the same last name, Odean Pope. Both engage in multiphonics (playing multiple pitches simultaneously). However, comparing the two, David opts for a softer tone is more spacious with the music than Odean.

Soul of the Elephant, David's first solo CD, proves him as a sensitive graceful player even when creating edgy tension. Label him a promising prospect on the progressive scene.
