A superior flute player from Trinidad, David Bertrand played classical and folk music before he discovered jazz.

Inspired most by tenor players, Bertrand developed his own lyrical yet forceful style on the flute.

He moved to the U.S., graduated from Queens College and has worked in New York and throughout the Caribbean and Latin America, usually leading his own quartet.

At the thick of the pandemic, on May 28, 2020, David Bertrand performed a set of solo flute (utilizing several types of flutes and a piccolo) during his LiveStream, playing music that is both swinging and soothing, and holding onto one’s interest throughout, even in this sparse setting.
