Its unusual to find a pianist who captivates with high-energy improvised fusion lines, and moments later seduces with evocative classic jazz ballad melodies. Dan Freedmanís heritage and character makes him that pianist, and his passion to innovate puts him at the edge of performance artistry.

Strongly influenced by Oscar Peterson, Chick Corea, and Bill Evans, Dan always inserts his own unique sound and style to match the needs of each performance. Always seeing music as an interactive art form that connects player and listener, Dan is very well tuned into the needs of his audience, never taking them too far away from a well-loved melody, yet always offering them something fresh and unusual to focus on. An avid composer not constrained by the labels of any particular genre, Dan has been called upon to provide his original compositions for motion picture and advertising use.

Dan's piano playing and compositions show a clear line of influences stretching back beyond Oscar Peterson, Chick Corea, and Bill Evans, to Art Tatum, Victor Feldman, and Nat Cole. Dan also attentively listens to Hiromi Uehara, Austin Peralta, and Benny Green. He cites non-pianistic musical influences as including Miles Davis, Toots Thielemans, Charlie Parker, Sting, Prince, Blondie, Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers, The Beach Boys, Queen, and The Beatles. While retaining references to these and other influences, Dan has developed his own unique sound and style, both in his playing and in his compositions.
