Eddie Daniels

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 when one man can all but reinvent an instrument, bringing it to a new stage of its evolution”. His albums Breakthrough, To Bird With Love, and Memos From Paradise all earned Grammy nominations, and Memos won a Grammy. Eddie’s overriding ambition is to reach as many people as possible with his music, to enlarge the audience for both jazz and classical music and at the same time to tear down the walls separating them. In Eddie’s hands the music of Mozart can be as engaging as that of Charlie Parker and a concert featuring both can be a uniquely rewarding experience for the audience.
