Cheikh Ndoye is a bassist, composer, arranger and accomplished musical artist whose music is a rich fusion of jazz and world music influences stemming from his West African heritage combined with his love for classic and contemporary American jazz.
Originally from Senegal, Cheikh’s fascination with the diverse, rich sounds and rhythms of the local music scene started in his prime age. Early in his life Cheikh played the piano, and was attracted to many jazz greats. His love for Jazz put him on a historical path of investigation into this genre, again at quite an early age.
He has played and recorded with great artists such as Russell Ferrante, Dave Weckl, Eric Marienthal, Karen Briggs, Lao Tizer, Arshak Sirunyan, Dean Brown, Mike Stern, Leni Stern and Randy Brecker a number of whom appear on his first CD, an album entitled “a Child’s Tale.”
