Recorded at New York’s famed Sear Sound with master producer Matt Pierson, Danny brought together his five year-old trio, along with a string quartet, to interpret eleven new compositions, each shaped by elements of his life’s narrative.

NICK FINZER'S "THE CHASE," TOP 30 FOR 2016

Recently back from dates in Australia, he can be seen performing around New York with his groups and the Anat Cohen Tentet.

Also on the JazzWeek Top 100 for the last year are Roxy Coss, Danny Green, and the Ray Vega / Thomas Marriott East-West Trumpet Summit.

Legendary Bassists Record Together

David Friesen and Glen Moore, two of the more influential bassists in jazz, recently teamed for a tour through Europe concluding with their 3rd duo recording over the last 40 years. Add the decade between their initial meeting up in Seattle in the '60s before their first recording, 1977's In Concert (Vanguard), and the total time they've been working together comes to 50 years. Named for the two-humped camel native to the steppes of central Asia, Bactrian offers ample new proof that these old friends continue to take great glee in surprising and challenging each other, their listeners, and themselves.
