Dan Aran Discography of CDs

Associated with: Nick Hempton

Breathing Breathing CD (2009)
CD $15.69 Buy It  Details
Dan Aran music CDs Drummer Dan Aran can certainly claim stylistic allegiance to several factions of modern jazz, from the progressive to ethnic fusion and neo-bop. But it is Dan Aran the composer and theorist who also stands out on this, his debut as a leader, teamed with various-sized groups and instrumentations that showcase the depth and breadth of his fertile imagination. As a rhythmic navigator, he challenges the norm with either extremely complex charts or adapting simple equations of swing into slightly embellished or peaceful pulses. A younger crowd of N.Y.C.-based musicians joins him, most notably trumpeter Avishai Cohen alongside trombonist Jonathan Voltzok, saxophonist Eli Degibri on three cuts, Matt Brewer or Tal Ronen on bass, and the very fine pianist Art Hirahara throughout. There's a large quotient of soul in this music based on patient virtue, and the steadfast belief that even though all of the notes have been played, they can still have new depth and meaning. The four tracks featuring the two brass players represent the most bluesy pieces, including the slow, sighing six-beat-in-five-note strains of the opener, "Sun Bath," with delicate yet intricate, cascading stairstep lines over the processed, looped electric guitar of Nir Felder -- a beautifully developed objet d'art. An outstanding finale, "Yemini Pne" really digs deep into the midnight blue spectrum via Hirahara's uptown late-night musings that merge into a modal groove with a stunning, jamming horn discourse that bumps the sleepy mood up several notches. A soft and gentle "Shnozel" recalls the sonic footprint of the great large ensembles of Woody Shaw that featured ...

Noble Path Noble Path CD (2011)

Dan Aran CD discography The latest CD by Bay Area pianist Art Hirahara asks the question "Yes, but why?" It's a tasteful, swinging, well-played piano trio disc that features four standards (Arthur Altman's "All or Nothing at All," most strongly identified with Frank Sinatra; Dizzy Gillespie's "Con Alma"; Duke Ellington's "Isfahan"; and Cole Porter's "Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye") sprinkled among eight Hirahara originals. The rhythm section -- bassist Yoshi Waki and drummer Dan Aran -- swings with subtle force, keeping the music moving forward at all times, even during ballads. Hirahara's playing is lyrical and yet somewhat middle of the road, somewhere between Bill Evans and Keith ...

Thoughts (Past and Present) Thoughts (Past and Present) CD (2007)
CD $15.59 Buy It  Details
Dan Aran music CDs Harry Whitaker is a veteran musician who has been on so many pop, R&B, funk, and jazz recordings that it is ridiculous. Thoughts (Past and Present) provides a rare opportunity to hear the pianist both as a leader and playing his own compositions exclusively. With bassist Omer Avital and drummer Dan Aran providing strong support, Whitaker displays an immense talent with his wide-ranging works. The driving post-bop "The Children and the Warlock" has a mystical air, yet his playing is remarkably restrained in such a high-energy piece. The haunting "Thoughts" builds slowly upon a repeated motif, which adds to its tense air. "Flight of ...
