David DeFries (born 24 May 1952) is a British jazz trumpeter, flugelhornist, and percussionist born in London. He was a member of Brotherhood of Breath, which was founded by Chris McGregor.[1]

He was also a member of the Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Loose Tubes, and the Breakfast Band, which occasionally recorded sessions for BBC Radio Two's Night Owls, hosted by Dave Gelly. His one solo lp of 1985/6 The Secret City is on the same axis as Don Cherry and the Art Ensemble of Chicago, jazz meeting world music, with Harry Beckett on second trumpet to half of the tracks.
