Recently I have interest in Dave Bass who is an American jazz pianist, composer, arranger, and lyricist.

Because his background is very interesting.

He has released two albums: Gone (2010) and NYC Sessions (2015).

This week I want to post Dave Bass and his fellows.

Dave Bass was born June 21, 1950 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Dave Bass began piano lessons at age seven, and shortly after graduating high school he was accepted into Boston’s Berklee College of Music.

Then he took lessons from the legendary Madame Margaret Chaloff who was the mother of Serge Chaloff.

Madame Margaret educated other young, immensely talented jazz artists as Keith Jarrett, Steve Kuhn.

While in Boston, he also studied composition with George Russell.

Also he had toured as Brenda Lee’s pianist.

In 1974 they landed Caribbean, Japan, Singapore, and Malaysia.

Then he relocated to San Francisco.
