Trevor Ware Trevor Ware

Trevor Ware is well recognized as one of the most supportive jazz bassists in Los Angeles. His style, reminiscent of Paul Chambers, Sam Jones and Charles Mingus, focuses not only on producing a supportive bass tone with impeccable intonation, but also features long, creative, well developed bass lines. One of the most in- demand bassists in Los Angeles, Ware is regularly featured with a number of bands, but most often forms strong bonds with drummers. Developing his craft at The World Stage Performance Gallery, Ware had the opportunity to hone the craft of swing under the tutelage of master drummer Billy Higgins (still the most recorded jazz drummer in history). After being offered his first professional gig by legendary pianist and composer Horace Tapscott & New York saxophonist Sonny Fortune, Ware developed as sense of musical adventure playing in Tapscott’s quartet and Pan Afrikan People’s Arkestra. Ware later developed a strong bond with drummers Tootie Heath, Alphonse Mouzon, Clayton Cameron and Sherman Ferguson, appearing on Ferguson’s release “Welcome to my Vision” and Cameron’s CD “Here’s to the Messengers”. Having appeared on over 30 recordings, Ware’s current musical associations include Kenny Burrell, Molly Ringwald & The Count Basie 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.
