Interview - Dave Young

Ask anyone who's heard him, Dave Young is one of the finest musicians in the world and certainly one of the top bass players in jazz.

He's worked with the best of the best from Sweets Edison to Hank Jones, Nat Adderley and James Moody. One of his particularly special musical relationships was with Dr. Oscar Peterson who said the following about his friend and colleague:

"To my way of thinking, Dave Young is one of the most talented bassists on the jazz scene. His harmonic simpatico and unerring sense of rhythm have kept him in the foreground of the jazz picture."

It's the mutual respect like this that has kept Dave Young busy with tributes to Dr. Peterson including one on Friday, November 9, at Hugh's Room.

Dave stopped by to chat with Heather about all things Oscar and what's coming up at the show.
