    I found this bio on his site Dante Pascuzzo:

    Dante Pascuzzo was born into an Italian-American family and raised in Los Angeles California. Influenced and taught by his father who is also a musician, Dante began playing bass at age 11.

    As a senior at the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts Dante won Down Beat magazine’s “Best jazz soloist,” and “Best rock, pop, blues soloist Awards. That same year at the age of seventeen, Dante recorded an album of original music by himself and Violinist Anand Bennett entitled “Home Grown”. It was produced by Peter Erskine, and included other world-class musicians such as Zakir Hussain, Alex Acuna, and Alan Pasqua. After high school Dante earned his BFA in Jazz Studies from the California Institute of the Arts jazz program.

    He studied under Charlie Haden, Dave Carpenter, and Darek Oles. Pascuzzo has performed, written, or recorded with many artists including Quetzal, Son De Madera, Ozomatli, and Shaila Durcal. He just released his first solo jazz album entitled “La La”.
