Daniele Germani

Daniele Germani has always believed that music is a powerful tool to develop the creative and expressive potential of people and that it will always be a driving force in society, breaking down human barriers and uniting people. For him, this has been undoubtedly true.  Being a bandleader and having a working group for over four years has allowed Daniele to grow both as a composer and arranger. In the year of 2019 he challenged himself to compose one tune per day. Today, he has written over 450 tunes, and will be releasing his debut record, A Congregation of Folks, on Gleam Records, March 2021. with his own quartet featuring his long- time band mates: Justin Salisbury (piano) Giuseppe Cucchiara (bass) Jongkuk Kim (drums).

Today, he has traveled and performed in famous jazz festivals and clubs around the United States, South America and Europe such as: Panama Jazz Festival with Dave Douglas Octet and the BGJI ambassadors, Umbria Jazz Festival in Perugia, Peperoncino Jazz Festival, Buenos Aires Jazz Festival, Cordoba Jazz Festival, Summer Time Casa del Jazz with David Kikoski Quartet, and George Garzone and Leo Genovese quintet. Since arriving in the United States he has collaborated with many great musicians such as Leo Genovese, Dave Douglas, Kenny Werner, Bob Moses, Dave Kikoski, George Garzone and many others. Daniele is also one of the last students to be taught by jazz legend Lee Konitz, before his passing in April 2020.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
