“Bacher delivers scrupulous control, hip phrasing and the kind of savory scat I haven’t heard from a man in some time, certainly not one so young!.”
– Broadway World
Danny Bacher is a singer, saxophonist, consummate performer and a fresh new face as jazz’s newest bright light – and man does he swing! His clean, crisp delivery is reminiscent of the true greats in entertainment. An engaging stage presence, a smooth-as-silk voice and his gift as a storyteller all come together to complete this package. Add to that his saxophone prowess, and you have one of the hottest musicians on the scene today. He is an actor, a writer, a comic, musician and a member of the legendary New York Friars’ Club.
Having honed his chops in NYC, the jazz capital of the world, Bacher exudes the emotion of a seasoned veteran performer, mixed with his own youthful vigor and bounce. He has a palpable, innate magnetism that can’t be taught. From his catchy, toe-tappin’ renditions of rare gems to classic takes on the Great American Songbook, Bacher is always at home on the stage and presents his case with elegance, style and class.
On his first CD debut on Whaling City Sound, Danny presented ‘Swing That Music!’ – A musical tribute to the three Louis…Armstrong, Prima & Jordan – to rave reviews with an “A” list band of jazz royalty including cornetist Warren Vaché (Rosemary Clooney/Annie Ross); drummer Bill Goodwin (Phil Woods); guitarist Howard Alden (Woody Allen films); Jazz tenor sax legend Houston Person (Etta Jones, Freddy Cole), Grammy-nominated trombonist and arranger, Pete McGuinness; pianist/arranger Jason Taborek; and saxophonist David Demsey (William Patterson College). Adding to this beautiful rainbow of sound is ‘rising star’ Cyrille Aimee on two outstanding duets with Bacher, forming a truly musical dream team.
Danny Bacher (pronounced BACK-er) was born too late to experience these giants first-hand, but he has heard their music and received their message. Bacher’s singing, his soprano saxophone playing and his serious, yet outgoing, approach to the material in this homage to Louis A, J and P shine new light on vintage material.
