His last recording “Compositionality”(Origin Arts 2009) reached the top 50 on the US jazz charts and was highly acclaimed. From Seattle to NYC to Europe to SW Florida, Dan’s jazz guitar playing is in the modern/straight-ahead/bebop style and he is considered among the best in the genre. Currently a professor of Jazz Guitar at FSW University and the head of the Music Department at Community School of Naples, he performs regularly in SW Florida when not spending time with his wife, well-known vocalist Rebecca Richardson, and their daughter, Stella.
