He has also participated in clinics with the likes of Joe Pass, Herb Ellis, and Barney Kessel, to name a few. Dan took a sabbatical from music for approximately 10 years, pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Information Systems and a career as a Senior Systems Engineer for a global data processing firm.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
