Daniel Nissenbaum Daniel Nissenbaum

Daniel Nissenbaum is a professional trumpet player, composer and film scorer. He currently lives in Philadelphia.

Daniel began playing professionally at the age of 15, with various jazz and pop groups in and around Philadelphia and Camden. Higher profile events included performances with Ahmad Jamal, Mccoy Tyner, Donald Byrd, and Valery Ponomerev. He attended Berklee College of Music, where he graduated in 2007 with a Degree in Brass Performance. He has also had the fortune to play with such greats as Marcus Miller and Terence Blanchard while in attendance.

After graduating from Berklee, Daniel moved out west and lived in California for under a year, performing regularly and teaching both private lessons through his own studio as well as through the Boys and Girls Club.

He returned to Philadelphia in the spring of 2008 and has since established a local studio for teaching in addition to a large volume of work as a professional trumpet player, recording artist and composer. A recent Master’s graduate of the University of the Arts, Daniel can be seen regularly around the city freelancing with a variety of bands, in addition to performing original material in solo and small group contexts.

Currently, Daniel is working as a film composer employed by Chicken and Egg, a documentary film production company based in New York. He has written scores for numerous independent projects including animations, short films and, most recently, a 10-anniversary C&E reel. He has also completed a short documentary about the work of Mike Frankfurt, founder of the legal firm Frankfurt Kurnit.

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.
