Today's guest is Shane Dahler, drummer for the contemporary jazz quintet Daruma.

Daruma is a fresh, new, contemporary jazz project featuring original music by some of Denver's finest young talent. Their sound takes audiences from deep grooves to intimate ballads to Coltrane-inspired swing. Daruma reinterprets the jazz aesthetic for the 21st century and crosses it with progressive rock, film music, and neo-soul in a genre-bending original sound.

Ensemble members have performed with leading voices in contemporary music, ranging from Billy Childs, Rufus Reid, and Tia Fuller to the Colorado Symphony Orchestra and Big Gigantic. They've played at notable venues, including Red Rocks Amphitheatre, the Blue Note Amsterdam, and Birdland, and have won ASCAP and Downbeat awards.

The ensemble will release its debut album on the respected Monk Music label in the spring of 2024.

On this episode, we featured the songs "Warriors March" and "Going Nowhere Fast."
