Dave Baron Dave Baron

“In case the listener needs a reminder of how wonderful an upright bass can sound, I hope that they will take the opportunity to listen to Dave Baron.” – Ron Carter

Everyone  has a story to tell.  Jazz bassist Dave Baron lets his instrument do the talking. He has demonstrated his skills supporting such jazz luminaries as Eric Reed, Lew Tabackin, Mary Stallings, Peter Bernstein, Walt Weiskopf, Joe Lovano, Jimmy Greene, Bill Dobbins, Wycliffe Gordon, Bruce Barth, and Bill Evans (saxophonist), among others. Dave has collaborated with other artists in countries such as Australia, Russia, Korea, Grand Cayman, and Romania.

Dave moved to New York City in 2010 to attend the Juilliard School for his master’s degree. Under the tutelage of the legendary bassist Ron Carter, Baron performed with Herbie Hancock at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center as part of a concert held for the 75th birthday celebration of Ron Carter.

Previous to attending Juilliard, Dave Baron received his Bachelor’s Degree from the Eastman School of Music. Dave was selected as one of fifteen semi-finalists from around the world for the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Bass Competition. As part of the competition, he performed with pianist Geoff Keezer and drummer Carl Allen at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. Soon after, he was awarded second place at the International Society of Bassists’ Scott LaFaro Jazz Competition. Baron participated in a professional development workshop with pianist Brad Mehldau, presented by the Weill Institute at Carnegie Hall. He also participated in workshops at the Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada where he worked with artists such as Dave Douglas, Scott Colley, and the ICP Orchestra.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
