Julian Dash (9 April 1916–25 February 1974) was an American swing music jazz tenor saxophonist born in Charleston, South Carolina, probably better known for his work with Erskine Hawkins and Buck Clayton. Julian Dash was a member of the Bama State Collegians, which later became the Erskine Hawkins orchestra. In the late 1940s and early 1950s, Julian Dash recorded for Sittin' In With records and later was on the Vee Jay label with his sextets. His renditions of "Devil's Lament" and "Dance of the Mother Bird" on Sittin' In With and his "Zig Zag" on the Vee Jay label were hits in the Black community. Julian Dash can be heard at his best on the 1953 Buck Clayton Jam Session Columbia LPs, a 2-album session, one featuring an appearance by Woody Herman, among other leading jazz musicians. Julian Dash's tenor sax sound was Hawkins-like, but with less rough edges than Hawk's.
