New York Sessions Pt. 1

Hey Everyone!  Incase you haven’t been following my blog, here is a quick update about my youtube series New York Sessions.  This past December, the Sextet (Chris Ott, Jon Lampley, Chris Ziemba, Adam DeAscentis, and John Hubbell) recorded 8 tracks at Supr Dupr Sound Studios in DUMBO Brooklyn.  Not only did we professionally record this batch of tunes live, but we had three cameras rolling during the two days of recording.  The purpose of this series is simply to share our music with the world, this is where you come in- If you enjoy our music PLEASE tweet about it or embed the video on Facebook so that we can share our music with as many people as possible!

Each week we will be releasing two videos, so stay tuned!

We will start with Little By Little by Radiohead and a mashup of Heart of Gold by Neil Young and Two Step By Dave Matthews.  Enjoy!  Play it loud!


About danwhitemusic

Dan White is and artist whose music has two distinct, yet interwoven concepts: This logic is clearly displayed in Between The Lines (March 2011). White has a deep respect for acoustic Jazz, but he is also is driven to explore uncharted territory: Playing music that cannot be defined or pigeonholed. Both sides of his music create a synergy effect: the tradition of America's classical music helps build the foundation from which he explores and experiments, while the experimentation gives way to more individuality. Music has played a large part in Dan's life since he was young. The saxophonist comes from a musical family: his grandfather a jazz bassist and music teacher, his uncle a music teacher, and four of his cousins are currently studying music. He grew up just north of Buffalo, New York, where he started playing piano at age eight, and saxophone at age nine. A few years later he got his first real taste of improvisation and composition. After hearing Joshua Redman in concert with his father, White was instantly hooked on the link between composition and improvisation. White states, "My music is an extension of my personality. I am influenced by many, and my goal is to merge these influences into refreshing and creative music that acknowledges the tradition that came before and progresses the art form."
