Ashley John Long

born: 1986
country: Wales

Ashley John Long has carved a niche as a composer of innovative scores for improvisers that balance fine detail with freedom and flexibility. He is also rapidly emerging as one of the most virtuosic double bassists in the U K, specialising in contemporary repertoire, creating innovative performance techniques and performing as a soloist throughout Europe. He was born in South Wales, and studied double bass at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, Cardiff. As a composer, his commissions include works for the Lunar Saxophone Quartet, percussion soloist Dave Danford as well as a big band work for Welsh harpist Catrin Finch. Leading jazz orchestras the world over have performed his jazz works and they have also received broadcasts on radio and television.
