Vessels of Wood and Earth
Mack Avenue, Brother Mister Productions

On this album Dan draws from his roots in gospel music, Motown, and the jazz tradition. The title, Vessels of Wood and Earth, stems from a bible verse in First Corinthians that highlights the importance of foundational elements, rather than external forces. 

About half of the songs on the record are original compositions, including The Rhythm Section, Juneteenth, The Reconstruction Beat, and Who Shot John. 



On June 23, 2017 Dan recorded his second album LIVE at BLU Jazz+. Dan shared the stage with some of the most talented, world-class musicians including Sullivan Fortner on piano, Ivan Taylor on bass, Xavier Breaker on drums, and Akron's own, Sam Blakeslee on trombone.


Thank you for supporting this Kickstarter project and making this album possible. Balancing Act is only available for physical order at this time.



To Whom It May Concern is a product of an intense study of many different musical styles and concepts. It was recorded in a year's time, with the help of many creative musicians and with the support of many dedicated and generous patrons. The album showcases the immense talent harbored in the Northeast Ohio and Pittsburgh areas. The purpose of recording this album is to share musical ideas with the public and to share the results of the creative process. Hopefully, this music will be heard and enjoyed by listening ears far and wide. Download or purchase your copy today!
