Alan Yanofsky

A native of Montreal, Alan Yanofsky began his musical studies on guitar. He became enthralled with electric bass as a young teenager and took up double bass at the tender age of 19. He worked extensively as a rock and roll and commercial jazz bassist and classical freelancer until he joined the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra in 1979 and then the Dallas Symphony in 1983. He loves playing chamber music and jazz and indulges his eclectic music tastes with an extensive record collection and superb stereo.
