Eddie De Haas, bass player, a musician in the classic jazz tradition made popular by such innovators as Oscar Pettiford and Ray Brown. Eddie was born in 1930 in Bandoeng on the island of Java, Indonesia, and moved to Amsterdam during the war. He started his musical career on the ukulele, and later, along with friend and band leader Rob Pronk, graduated to the upright bass. Coming to the US in the 1950's, de Haas soon became a valued sideman in many notable artists' rhythm sections including Chet Baker, Roy Haynes, Gene Krupa, Martial Solal, Miles Davis, Toshiko Akeyoshi, Blossom Dearie, and in the 1960's, Peter, Paul & Mary.
