David Basskin

Toronto native David Basskin is a lifelong jazz fan (and occasional sax player) who loves to feature “the best music you’ve never heard in your life.” He brings a lifetime’s enthusiasm and knowledge of jazz composers, musicians and history, highlighting artists you love in recordings you may not know, as well as a wealth of players that may be new to listeners.

Trained as a lawyer, David headed up the Canadian Musical Reproduction Rights Agency Ltd. (CMRRA), Canada’s largest music licensing agency, for more than two decades and now works as a consultant on copyright and technology issues and teaches business law at Ryerson.
