Dan is a top sax player and educator primarily performing in Chicago. Streams of harmony, rhythm, and spontaneous improvisations erupt from five musicians to form the Dan Burke Quintet. Playing contra facts and originals, this band uproots your preconceived notions of what a jazz quintet should be. Like a blindfold wearing homing pigeon, DBQ is much more than a cute, antiquated idea. This group is a fierce ensemble, unafraid of risk, venturing out to alien landscapes and back again bringing listeners on an exciting voyage of music. See danburkemusic.com for more information.
