Horace Alexander Young

Distinguished freelancer, arranger and composer

Horace Alexander Young is a 21st Century musician whose combined saxophone and vocal style revisits the sensitivity and grit of Lester Young and Cannonball Adderley, and the smoothness and grace of Nat King Cole. While he has spent most of his 30+ years in the music business playing, arranging. composing and recording music for other artists, his focus now is on his personal artistry and teaching and mentoring the next generation of musicians in their development of a skill-set in performance and business practices. In pursuit of that mission, he is currently an Associate Professor of Music at Washington State University (Pullman, WA) where he serves as the Artist Teacher of Saxophone and teaches classes in Jazz Studies and Music Business.
