London-based double bassist and composer Calum Gourlay is known for his deep warm tone, controlled execution as both a supporter and improviser, and rock solid time and pulse. Born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1986, he began his musical journey playing the cello in primary school and by the age of fourteen started the double bass, having developed a serious interest in jazz and improvised music. Gourlayâ€™s talents were noticed by many of Scotlandâ€™s premier artists, and as a result he became the first bassist selected for the then â€˜brand newâ€™ Tommy Smith Youth Jazz Orchestra as well as other ensembles.
