I met Danny through Whitney George's Curiosity Cabinet a few years ago at a Prospect Heights bar. It was dark, daytime, we all had a beer and talked shop. He is compassionate and endlessly curious in his artistic practice. His compositions are both haunting and sweet, with a nod to simpler times when perhaps melody wasn't such a bad thing.
Here's a video of two of my favorites, soprano Laura Strickling and cellist Ben Larsen, performing "Full of Life" at Concerts on the Slope, Brooklyn.
