SCCD 31508 – Harold Danko Quartet "Prestigious"
Pianist/Leader/Composer/Educator are a few of the hats worn by Harold Danko.
Here he leads his quartet (with special guest Dave Ballou on trumpet) as an interpreter of Eric Dolphy's music. In its seventh recording for SteepleChase, the Harold Danko Quartet explores nine tunes penned by Dolphy.
Danko's previous effort for SteepleChase ("NightScapes" SCCD 31490) has received much praise from critics everywhere.
"A hauntingly beautiful collection of eight lambent vignetts" (Chuck Berg, Jazz Times, June 2001)
"Danko's solos are wonderfully evocative and impressionistic throughout." (Ron Netsky, Rochester City News, March 2001)
"Danko is a thoughtful composer/player whose tasteful themes are awash in musical riches" (Jack Bowers, Cadence Magazine, September 2001).
