Alvin Young

alvin-bioBass and guitar player and New Orleans’ native Alvin Young spent years on the fabled Crescent City music scene playing with Wynton and Branford Marsalis, local legends James Booker and James Black and many more. His voice on bass and guitar weaves the jazz, rock, classical, and folk styles he’s been immersed in for the last 40 years. The hallmark of Alvin’s expression on the bass is a rare and deeply melodic quality that illuminates the trio’s sound. Music has been a pivotal part of Alvin’s spiritual journey. Alvin has also been invited by many kirtan artists to play bass and guitar including Girish, Shantala, David Newman, Luna Ray, Prema Hara, and Gina Sala.
