Event

Unforgettable: The Music of Nat King Cole
A special tribute to Nat King Cole by Horace Alexander Young

HORACE ALEXANDER YOUNG, is one of a select group of triple threat recording and touring artists who is equally gifted as a multi- instrumentalist (woodwinds, keyboards and percussion), vocal musician and as a highly skilled composer/arranger. Although originally trained in college primarily as a classical flutist, his studies in saxophone were approached as a dual emphasis and his subsequent professional career has reflected this as well.

His varied experiences have led to appearances on over eighty-seven (87) recordings and several international tours and performances with Sam Lightnin Hopkins, B.B. King, Bobby McFerrin, Bill Withers, Aretha Franklin, The Crusaders, The Manhattans, Joe Sample, Regina Belle, The McCoy Tyner Big Band, Johnny Kemp, Abdullah Ibrahim (Dollar Brand), The  Temptations, Bubbha Thomas, Gerald Alston, Toots Thielemans, John Blake, Arnett Cobb, Jonathan Butler, Youssou N Dour, Onaje Allan Gumbs, Nancy Wilson, Kenny Barron, George Coleman, Dwight Sills, Milt Hinton, Dave Liebman, Norman Brown, Don Menza, Marvin Stamm, Betty Carter, Mark Ledford, The Four Tops and countless others. Having performed in eighteen (18) countries across five (5) continents his saxophone, flute and vocal skills have thrilled audiences at major Jazz Festivals in Montreaux, Hamburg, Leipzig, London, Paris, The Hague, British Columbia, Berlin, New York, New Orleans, Tokyo, Houston, Seattle, Gent, Laverkusen and Glasgow.

Mr. Young previously served as Chair of the Contemporary Music Program at Santa Fe University of Art and Design (Santa Fe, NM) and Interim Director of Jazz Studies at Texas Southern University -where he conducted the Texas Southern Jazz Experience Big Band and The Joe Sample Jazz Orchestra (with Artist-In-Residence, Joe Sample). Prior to those appointments, he taught on the music faculty at Washington State University (1998-2008), Rutgers University and Sonoma State University.

In addition to maintaining an active performing and recording schedule, Mr. Young is in constant demand as an adjudicator and as a guest performer for numerous festivals and schools throughout the USA, Canada and abroad. He also performs as a sideman with noted recording artists and as a leader of his own group.

Mr. Youngs recent recordings are found on the Pacific Coast Jazz label. As a published author (Improvising Jazz Flute, Music Sales/G.Schirmer) and music journalist, he has contributed articles for SB&O (School Band and Orchestra) Magazine, GIG Magazine, Flute Talk, The Instrumentalist, Flute Focus, Canadian Musician and American Music Teacher.

Horace Alexander Young uses Vandoren saxophone reeds, mouthpieces and ligatures exclusively, and uses SKB cases and AMT Microphones.
