Dan White
This month, composer and saxophonist released his self produced album everywhere online. Between The Lines combines two distinct concepts: original compositions and highly stylized covers. The core of the recorded material is a result of Dan White's Quartet winning the 2010 Rochester Jazz Star Competition. The originals are very personal pieces that document the summer of 2010. “Chief Waneta" and “Blue Skies" are written and arranged dedications to White's family. “Fire Blossom" was written during one of White's many visits to New York City and it illustrates the city's power and creative energy. The covers are songs that White has always wanted to play. Each gives way to expansive improvisational sections.

The Album was funded in part by the Rochester Jazz Competition and also by a grant from The Ohio State University. White Explains “ Since I received so much help from the Rochester competition and from Ohio State, I want to continue this spirit of giving. During the process of making the CD I knew that I wanted to give back in some way. The first month's profits from CD sales I am going to donate to the MS Society and The Roswell Park Cancer Institute. These are two groups that have helped and continue to help members of my family and people that I love."

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
