Sheet Music Plus is now publishing some of my arrangements for big band. There are eleven published so far, with more to come soon. I may make a separate tab devoted to publishing, or perhaps an entirely separate site. Titles published so far are Watermelon Man, Moody's Mood For Love, Misty (big band w/male vocal), On the Sunny Side of the Street, Jack's Blues, Your Love, Happy Talk, I Can't Get Started, Arriving Soon and Impressions. Also there is collection of 10 saxophone duets called A Decade of Nigel. Just click on this logo:
The DL Trio continues appearing at PIP'S ON LA BREA every Saturday. We play your favorite jazz from 7:00 to 10:00 PM. The regular trio consists of myself, Tom Hamasu (bass) and 'Slam' (drums), plus we often have some very talented musicians sitting in. Pip's has a romantic atmosphere, great Italian food, a full bar, and of course great music six nights a week. For more info, and to make reservations, check the website. http://www.PipsOnLaBrea.com
Jazz Lines is now publishing my big band compositions. So far they have added 13 to their catalog, the latest being Crimp Cut. These are great charts (if I do say so myself) and many are playable by good high school jazz bands. Just click on the eJazzLines logo (below to the right) or go to and use the "Search" feature to locate my stuff.
Titles published so far are:
L.A., Si, Si!
Rhythm 'n' Rodney
Mix A Modian Lid
Puesta del Sol
to my website. Browse around, and if you have ideas for how to make it better, more artistic, more functional, etc. please let me know. Just click on the “contact” tab and you will find my phone, email address, and even a form for sending me a message.
On the “Calendar” page you will find public performances listed. Lately I have been performing quite a bit with my trio, consisting of myself plus bass and drums. We have been appearing with some regularity at Pip’s in Los Angeles.
I've created a new page (tab) devoted to the David Leech Trio. It's called "The Trio". Check it out
The “Info” page has some biographical data on me.
“Gallery” contains photos and the “Music” page has both video and audio recordings.
I will be adding more photos, more music, more info and, hopefully, many more performance dates to these pages as time goes by.
If you need a band for your party, luncheon, night club, or any other function, I can provide it. Any size from a three piece combo to twenty piece big-band. Live music always adds class to a function.
Besides performing, I provide other musical services such as composing, arranging, orchestration, lead sheets, transcriptions and music preparation. So if you need any of those services please contact me.
Oh yes, if you would like to learn how to play the sax, the flute, or the clarinet, I do also give private music lessons at reasonable rates.
