Dave Young

Multiple award-winning double bassist and composer Dave Young is, without a doubt, one of Canada’s most valuable musical treasures. The list of artists with whom Dave has shared the stage is a virtual “Who’s Who” of international jazz, including the late Oscar Peterson, and additional iconic artists Lenny Breau, Clark Terry, Harry “Sweets” Edison, Joe Williams, Oliver Jones, Kenny Burrell, Cedar Walton, Nat Adderly, Peter Appleyard, Gary Burton, Barney Kessell and James Moody. In addition to performing and recording, Dave is also a dedicated jazz educator and member of the Faculty of Music at Humber College and the University of Toronto. Dave Young was recently named as a member to the Order of Canada – our country’s highest and most prestigious civilian honour.
