Eddie Daniels is that rarest of rare musicians who is not only equally at home in both jazz and classical music, but excels at both with breathtaking virtuosity.
Expert testimony from the jazz world comes from the eminent jazz critic Leonard Feather, who said of Eddie, It is a rare event in jazz where one man can all but reinvent an instrument bringing it to a new stage of revolution."
From the classical side, Leonard Bernstein said Eddie Daniels combines elegance and virtuosity in a way that makes me remember Arthur Rubenstein. He is a thoroughly well-bred demon."
