Dave Sharp and the Secret Seven feeling the review love. Check out this hot review of Dave Sharp and the Secret Seven “7” album and click here: Dave Sharp’s Secret Seven is “World Jazz for the Jazz World”. It transcends musical, national, and ethnic boundaries by re-interpreting, not fusing, influences from Africa, Asia, the Latin world, Blue Note Jazz, and that other planet, New Orleans. Secret Seven features Dave Sharp on electric & double bass, leading a steady groove and laying the foundation for the band’s irresistible melodies. Native Detroiter Sharp became devoted to Jazz at the University of Michigan and refined his chops under the tutelage of renowned bassist Herbie Lewis (McCoy Tyner, Cannonball Adderly, Les McCann) in San Francisco, and virtuoso bassist, composer and bandleader Marion Hayden (Straight Ahead) in Detroit. As bassist and composer for the modern jazz ensemble Spheres of Influence, and touring bassist for the seminal rock band The Melvins (Atlantic Records), Sharp has already made a mark on the national scene. Sharp lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan where he composes, records, teaches and performs.

The Secret 7 Feature:

  • Dave Sharp-Electric & Double Bass
  • Chris Kaercher-Tenor & Soprano saxophones
  • Eric ” Chucho” Wilhelm-Drums & Percussion
  • Duncan McMillan-Piano & Organ
