Bassist Leslie Baker, a Los Angeles native has been involved with music from an early age.  Her Father, Dick Baker was a professional pianist and vocal coach.  He started her on piano and reading music at age six.  By twelve on his suggested Leslie start playing bass. Very shortly after that she was performing on double bass with her Dad at his gigs.

Long tenures in the bands of Al Aarons and the L.A. Jazz Caravan (Count Basie/Studio trumpeter) and sixteen years with bluesman Floyd Dixon (songwriter Hey Bartender, Operator 210, Jump Piano/Vocals) have afforded numerous festival and recording opportunities.  A particular highlight among many festivals with Floyd was the Monterey Jazz Festival. It resulted in a recording “Live at Monterey”. “Wake Up and Live” another collaboration with Floyd Dixon won the John Handy Award.
