US bass virtuoso David Friesen (http://www.davidfriesen.net/) is a true jazz legend and has been heralded as one of the most prolific and influential jazz bassists of the past four decades.

Anyone acquainted with David Friesen’s exceptional music quickly thinks of his creative universe. Ocean-deep in his sensitivity to the human spirit, Friesen is compassionate and his music founded on integrity and the pursuit of excellence.
