As a trumpet player and multi instrumentalist, Dan has travelled the world performing, recording, and collaborating with some of the great musicians of the time.  Notable artists include David Byrne, Macy Gray, Osvaldo Golijov, Dawn Upshaw, Bonobo, Doyle Bramhall II, Bonnie Raitt, Kaki King and DJ Krush.  His work with NYC's Gonzalo Grau Y La Clave Secreta, garnered a Grammy Nomination in 2006 and his compositions have received accolades from the Bourges institute and the ASA. From the Sydney Opera House to the Slovak High Tatras to Carnegie hall, the experience and diversity of travel and performance is evident in Dan's multicultural, and ever expanding musical language.  As a studio player, Dan can be heard not only as a soloist and horn section leader, but as a designer of textures and emotions, filling in the small gaps that bring recordings to life.
