A jazz and classical acoustic bassist noted for his subtlety and versatility, Dave Young was raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, later relocating to Toronto in the hopes of pursuing a career in music. He first attracted notice in collaboration with guitarist Lenny Breau, whom he joined in 1961; exiting Breau's band a half-decade later, Young went on to perform and record with such renowned figures as Clark Terry, Zoot Sims, Moe Koffman, Nat Adderley, and Oscar Peterson. After spending decades as the bass accompanist of choice for performers traveling through Toronto, Young led his first recording date, Fables and Dreams, in 1993. Two years later, he recruited a group of pianists including the aforementioned Peterson, Mulgrew Miller, Tommy Flanagan, and Renee Rosnes for the acclaimed Two by Two, the first in a series of bass and piano duets. ~ Jason AnkenyPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
