Dave first began studying the guitar and violin at age ten, but a turn of events at his first gig (a university dance band) compelled him to pick up the bass. Equally comfortable with symphonic work and acoustic jazz, Dave is a multiple threat. As classical artist, he was the principal Double Bassist for a number of years with the Edmonton and Winnipeg Symphonies as well as with the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra. As a jazz artist, he is a chameleon-like bassist, who often shines brightest in collaborative efforts with other musicians. Because of his technical skill (no doubt a direct result of his extensive classical disciplines) Dave regularly brings jazz bass playing to a new level. Few bassists (jazz or otherwise) are able to dig in, swing hard and still render a lyrical and beautiful arco solo.
Dave Young’s elegant, moving and symbiotic performances with the late guitarist Lenny Breau are legendary. Dave worked with Lenny Breau’s Quartet from 1961-66. Recently a “live” CD has been made available by Randy Bachman’s “Guitar Archives” label. The CD is a recording of a 1983 performance of the duo at the former Toronto jazz hot-spot, “Bourbon Street” (also the title of the CD).
The list of artists with whom Dave Young has shared the stage and/or recording studio, is a veritable “Who’s Who” of international jazz...including the venerable jazz giant Oscar Peterson (with whom Dave has had a twenty-five year professional relationship), Clark Terry, Harry “Sweets” Edison, Zoot Simms, Joe Williams, Oliver Jones, Rob McConnell, Kenny Burrell, Cedar Walton, Hank Jones, Nat Adderly, Peter Appleyard, Gary Burton, Barney Kessel, Ed Bickert, Ranee Lee, Marcus Belgrave, Don Thompson, Kenny Burrell and James Moody.
Jazz contrabassist, singer, composer, Brandi Disterheft, has captivated audiences in Canada, Europe, Japan, China, Haiti and even the coveted Carnegie Hall. It’s not only her fiery bass playing that make audiences stand-up and holler, but also her innovative live shows as she sings in both English and French showcasing her ambient and dreamy voice. Winning a JUNO for her “Debut” album (Superfran Records), Brandi is currently signed to Montreal’s Justin Time Records with whom she had the honor of recording with icons Oliver Jones and Hank Jones on the album “Pleased to Meet You” that earned a Grammy in 2011.
A featured soloist with the Canada’s Pops Orchestra at just the age of 21, Brandi began performing in her teens with her mother, a Chicago-born pianist and B3 Organist. Having been under the apprenticeship of Miles Davis’ bassist, Ron Carter, since she relocated to NYC, she has since also recorded with Benny Green on Anne’s Drummond’s album “Revolving” and Cyrus Chestnut and Jeremy Pelt on Vincent Herring’s albums “Uptown Shuffle” and “Night and Day.”
This promising talent from the north is currently touring her forth album “Blue Canvas” featuring an all-star New York City line-up with jazz master Harold Mabern and the great Joe Farnsworth. In her eloquent liner notes, the multi-talented musician reminds us of the Muses of Ancient Greece philosophized by Plato, and how these Gods and Godesses would lead the artist into a state of ecstasy. And such are the feelings that lead her to state that: “This album tells a story about that escape to freedom and the unyielding feeling of coming alive.”
