Dave Kikoski

Saxophonist Ralph Moore introduced Dave Kikoski to Roy Haynes in 1986. Kikoski is still a first-call member of Haynes' band and one of the most fluent young pianists working today. Born in 1961, Kikoski is a musician who can swing forcefully as an accompanist and apply his adventurous harmonic ideas to various improvisational contexts.

Daves dad, a part-time musician, started teaching his son Duke Ellington and Count Basie songs when he was seven. By 1984, hed graduated from Berklee and the next year, moved to New York, where he was soon playing with some of the best musicians on the planet, including Billy Hart, Randy Brecker, Red Rodney and Craig Handy.

Dave has worked with Roy Haynes for nearly fifteen years now, recording with the percussion legend, most memorably on 'When Its Haynes It Roars'. Comfortable in Latin Jazz contexts, hes also worked with Guilhermo Franco and David Sanchez.
