This Cincinnati Kid attended Berklee, studied with the legendary Madame Chaloff gleaning an exquisite touch on piano and an appreciation for the spirituality of music. He also opened for Captain Beefheart, studied composition with George Russell, and toured the world with Brenda Lee – all before hitting 26! A wrist injury took him out of music and put him in the world of law where he became a Deputy Attorney General working for Kamala Harris. (Ask about Kamala’s letter to Dave about his music.) Having recorded his many originals with jazz greats like Phil WoodsTed NashErnie WattsIgnacio BerroaMary Stallings, and Karrin Allyson, Dave now enters the refined world of the piano trio saluting many of the pianists upon whose shoulders he stands, including Bud PowellPaul BleyAndrew Hill, and
Thelonious Monk. The Dave Bass Trio travels from Bach to Be-Bop to Free Jazz!
