Chris Lightcap | Back

Born in Latrobe, Pennnsylvania in 1971, Chris Lightcap played violin and piano before taking up the electric bass at the age of 14, and switching to upright bass a couple of years later.

After studying with such iconic figures as Milt Hinton and Bill Dixon, he moved to New York, and soon found work with a diverse array of leaders, including Mark Turner, Ravi Coltrane, and Cecil Taylor. Since 2000 he has been a regular member of bands led by violinist Regina Carter and drummer Matt Wilson, as well as leading his own quintet Bigmouth.
