1) American jazz producer, arranger, conductor, pianist, keyboardist. Has been on the jazz scene, producing for such artists as James Brown and George Benson as well as appearing in many credits for CTI Records in Japan and the United States since the 1970’s.

Claims to fame later became known well to his appearance are a fisherman’s cap, a somewhat unkempt moustache/beard and aviator-frame eyeglasses.

2) David Matthews (born 9 March 1943) is an English composer of mainly orchestral, chamber, vocal and piano works. He was born in London into a family that was ‘not especially’ musical; the desire to compose did not manifest itself until he was sixteen, and for a time he and his younger brother Colin Matthews, also a composer, were each other’s only teachers. The start of the ‘Mahler boom’ in the early 1960s, when the works of Gustav Mahler began to enter the regular British repertoire for the first time, was a tremendous creative impetus for both of them; but though they have sometimes collaborated as arrangers (for instance in orchestrating seven early Mahler songs) and editors (in the published version of Deryck Cooke’s ‘performing version’ of the draft of Mahler’s Tenth Symphony), as composers they have very much gone their separate ways.
