R.I.P Dave Carpenter
I saw today the sad news that bassist Dave Carpenter has passed away at the age of 48.

Dave worked with a wide range of artists from Maynard Ferguson to Mike Stern, among many more.

He will be missed.

Re: R.I.P Dave Carpenter
THE Dave Carpenter??? Who worked with Peter Erskine, too?

Can`t believe this, I`d have never expected this. Was he ill or what are the reasons for his too early death?

Rest in Peace.

PS: Some damn sad years. Many young cats in the Jazz scene passed away, from Michael Brecker over Esbjörn Svensson to Dave.

Hey Karl,

Yeah, that Dave Carpenter I'm sorry to say. Only 48 at the time of his death. I've searched a little but haven't found any mention of the cause.

The man was accomplished on both acoustic and electric bass. He'll sure be missed.
