A cursory glance through the vast discography of double bassist David Friesen reads like a 'Who's Who' of Jazz. With an excess of fifty recordings as either leader or co-leader and countless sessions, David has played with far too many artists to list, but randomly pulling a few names out of the hat would give such players as Ralph Towner, Chick Corea, Joe Henderson, Paul Horn and Mal Waldron.
Born in Tacoma, Washington in 1942, David began his life of music at the age of ten with Accordion and ukulele, before moving on to guitar professionally at sixteen. It was a while later that David became addicted to the double bass, and I began our conversation by asking him what turned him onto the instrument....
