I trio has a mixture of compositional influences. In two of the compositions, which were influenced by Steve Gadd drumbeats, the composition “Fifty Ways to Quit Your Fat” Dan uses Gadd’s “Fifty Ways” drum beat which originally appeared on a Paul Simon song. mozambique is another beat that is associated with Gadd, and it is featured on the tune “Some People Did Something”. Two tracks on this album were influenced by Dan’s Yemeni Jewish family “Savta Ora” and “East gate” both feature Arabic rhythms. “Coltrix” is a composition based on by John Coltrane harmony known as the “Coltrane matrix”. “Bargara” is a composition written in 2011 for the “Australian Jazz convention”. “Groove Evolution” is a composition (by Brett Loretz) through different grooves and moods. The rest are simple jazz compositions. Dan recorded and produced this album in his own studio (BARS) in Bundaberg, Australia. This album marks Dan’s transition from piano to bass.

“I was born in Israel and moved to New Zealand when I was 21. I studied drums for two years, then I opted for a specialization in piano. I obtained a bachelor’s degree in jazz performance in 1999 and continued my studies to become a high school teacher. In 2011 I moved to QLD, Australia. I have released several trio and solo albums; they are all available at major online retail stores. says Dan.
He further says: “My piano teacher at the university (in Wellington) has been Leigh Jacksonand Roger Sellers was my drum teacher (before I majored in piano), I love the music of Bill Evans and Keith Jarret, these are my main influences. Today, I listen to and am inspired by the music and art of Christian McBride – who is a wonderful bassist and bandleader.”
