After the success of Dave's debut album "Legends", he received acclaim from critics, musicians, and listeners alike. Dave was nominated for the Downbeat Critics Poll 1979 as well as nominated by Latin N.Y. magazine for Best New Flutist. He has appeared at Carnegie Hall, sharing the "S.R.O." bill with Maynard Ferguson and as a featured guest solist with Hubert Laws.
Dave's second album presents the two sides of his cultural experience. Growing up in the South Bronx, his music has both "Funk" and "Latin" roots. This album brings these two sides of Dave Valentin to the forefront. Dave's music is like a hawk……strong, confident and soaring.

The final two songs on Chris Dave’s debut album present a vivid argument for the drummer as modern bandleader. After a couple of minutes of the psychedelic “Lady Jane,” the Houston-born musician’s stickwork explodes, scattering percussive shrapnel all over the track before he takes command and slows the song to a stuttering halt. And on the space-jazz-influenced “Trippy Tipsy,” Dave’s rocket-fuel drumming lends momentum to celestial sax riffs. Together, they showcase the man behind the drum kit as the lead musical voice. But it’s telling that those two songs are instrumental affairs, because the 13 tracks that precede them are heavy on guest vocalists, to the point where Dave becomes cast as a backseat presence on what should be his journey.

Valentin gained attention early on as a versatile musician who was able to play in Latin jazz groups but found professional success by exploring the sounds of world music with his flute. He was adept at Latin and straight-ahead jazz, but was also known for combining Latin rhythms with pop sounds in his original music. He was the first artist signed to the GRP jazz label in 1978 and released 18 world music albums on the imprint.

Dave Valentin, who has recorded over 15 albums for GRP, combines together the influence of pop, R&B, and Brazilian music with Latin jazz to create a slick and accessible form of crossover jazz.He was born of Puerto Rican parents in 1952 in New York City.At age nine, Valentin enjoyed playing bongos and congas. He gigged at Latin clubs in New York from age 12 and it was not until he was 18 that he seriously started studying flute. Valentin's teacher, Hubert Laws, suggested that he not double on saxophone because of his attractive sound on the flute. In 1977, he made his recording debut with Ricardo Marrero's group and he was also on a Noel Pointer album. Discovered by Dave Grusin and Larry Rosen, Valentin was the first artist signed to GRP and he has been a popular attraction ever since.

Jungle Garden is just another real gem by one of the greatest flutist in the Jazz realm, and the best in Latin Jazz. The best two cuts by far are "Very Nice Indeed" with Tania Maria on the piano, and the killer cut Tabasco. Those were the days when the flutist had to prove themselves and Valentin does it.
