Dave’s second album, Lucky Man
, is overflowing with contributions from an all-star cast: from the unparalleled production team involved, to the outstanding musical guests who contribute. As evidenced by the title track featuring the vocals of Charles Pettigrew and the uplifting, energetic “Saxman,” featuring Maceo Parker on alto sax and Tower of Power’s “Doc” Kupka on bari sax, Lucky Man, firmly established Dave on the scene of contemporary music
. “Faces of the Heart” became the theme for the long-running daytime soap, “General Hospital,” while vocalist Phil Perry’s soulful performance on “Tender is the Night” made it an oft-requested song still today at radio
. Lucky Man’s success led to numerous TV appearances including a regular Thursday night stint on the Arsenio Hall Show, Regis and Kathie Lee, The Tonight Show and Beverly Hills
90210. The album closes with an a cappella version of one of Dave’s favorite standards, “Misty.” This CD is a melting pot of peppy, funky songs and slow ballads helping to make Dave’s sophomore effort a smashing success – a feat for any artist, in any genre.
