Popular music has known many “double threats”. The ability to both play and sing has positioned numerous jazz artists for stardom, going back to Louis Armstrong and Fats Waller, on through Nat King Cole, Chet Baker, George Benson, and more current examples such as Harry Connick, Jr., Jamie Cullum, and Esperanza Spalding.

However, Houston-based vocalist/saxophonist David Caceres offers a rare combination: a soulful, emotive voice with the potential to connect with a varied adult audience and the skills as an alto saxophonist to go toe-to-toe with the best players of his generation. Indeed, Caceres’s raw talent and natural charisma make him a sure bet to cross boundaries and unify audiences.

Caceres comes from a family with a rich musical heritage. His grandfather, jazz violinist Emilio Caceres, led a popular swing orchestra in San Antonio, Texas in the 1930's & 40's. However, to jazz fans the Caceres name is familiar due to the work of his great uncle Ernie Caceres, who played saxophone and clarinet with the Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, and Woody Herman big bands.

David himself cultivated his own talents at Boston's prestigious Berklee School of Music. After his consummate schooling David headed to the Big Apple to cut his musical teeth. Yet, with his genetics, it is no wonder he returned to his roots to stake his musical claim. Now he has become a veritable Texas Tradition juggling an incredible performance, recording, and teaching career.

He has shared the stage with a varied and prestigious list of musicians, including Kirk Whalum, John Pattitucci, Bob James, Regina Belle, Delfeayo Marsalis, Yolanda Adams, Brian Blade, and Paquito D’Rivera, Wynton Marsalis, and Ricardo Montaner. David's recording career is as varied and impressive as his work on stage. He has 4 CDs under his name, and is featured on Latin sensation La Mafia’s Grammy winning “Un Million De Rosas.” He has also recorded for such artists as Danny Brillant, Matt Lemmler, Paul English, Sebastian Whittaker, Bobby Lyle, Deodato, and Robbie Williams, among others.

David has also been active in the world of education, having served as a faculty member of High School for the Performing and Visual Arts and the University of Houston. His noteworthy career in education has earned him recognition from the National Foundation for Advancement In the Arts.
