Dave Georgetti

A life long musical journey began when Dave Georgetti picked up his first guitar at age five. The journey continued in earnest when he began his professional music studies at Berklee College of Music where he received dual BA degrees in both Jazz Composition and Music Production and Engineering. As a master guitarist and composer his original compositions embody a unique blend of rhythms, harmonies, and musical textures. His music transcends traditional Latin music by combining jazz elements with acoustic and electric instruments while introducing new Latin Fusion grooves.

“It begins with a groove.” For Dave Georgetti, it is the rhythmic groove in his original compositions that propels the music and defines the overall flow of the song. Laying down the groove foundation with drums, percussion and bass guitar gives the song direction. His recent album release, “Mother’s Son”, represents a new dimension in Latin Jazz. The fusion of traditional acoustic Latin-style guitar with hot electric guitar brings Latin Jazz to a new level.
