David Chevan

David Chevan is a rare individual in the music world. An active bassist and composer, he is involved in some of the most dynamic and musically exciting jazz projects in Southern Connecticut. In addition to his busy performance schedule, Chevan also holds a Ph.D. in jazz history and is a full-time professor of music at Southern Connecticut State University. His research on early jazz has radically altered the views of many colleagues--his discovery that certain copyright deposits by Louis Armstrong contained hitherto unheard music as well as a fully notated solo that had always been assumed to be an improvisation briefly created a controversy (for those interested in learning more about this see Chapter 6 of David\'s dissertation, \"Written Music in Early Jazz\").
