Daniel Coffeng Daniel Coffeng

Daniel Coffeng hails originally from Amsterdam, The Netherlands and brings a new, unique technical fluidity and energy to post bop and avant-garde jazz improvisation.

Growing up as part of a huge multi-racial family, he was at a very young age exposed to a lot of different music and cultures from all over the world. After taking classical lessons for a year he switched to electric guitar and began to explore the immensely vast world of music from all over the world, from Jazz, Blues, Soul, Reggae, Classical and Rock to Indian Sitar music, ancient Greek, Indonesian, Japanese Koto, Latin-American and West African music. His explorations of different string instruments introduced him to expansive new sounds and musical possibilities.

He has played, toured written and recorded with artists such as; Steve Tavaglione, Mike Barsimanto, Farzin Farhedi, Khalil Hebert, Billie Davies, Manny Silvera, John von Seggern, David Strayer, et al.

He is currently featured as an online columnist for Koala Music, a company based in Adelaide, Australia.

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.
