Hello, and welcome to danblacksberg.com!
This site is a place where you can find about trombonist and composer Dan Blacksberg. Above, you’ll see links to my bio, descriptions of and links to a wide variety of musical projects, sound samples, photos, and a store where you can purchase albums. The klezmer link in the upper right hand corner of the site is a full page dedicated to my work in that music. I have currently posted there some sound samples, and some resources for people who are trying to learn the traditional, single-note accompaniment style of klezmer music.
Looking ahead to summer 2014, there are many exciting things coming up:
Perilous Architecture, the Dan Blacksberg Trio’s second record, and our first in four years, will be released on Lithuania-based NoBusiness Records in Late July. NoBusiness also released my first trio record, which was also my first recording as a bandleader, so it’s a pleasure to continue this relationship with them. I want to thank everyone at the label for the great work they do and for continuing to support my music.
Around the same time, Haitian Rail, (formerly the Millevoi/Ricart Quartet) will release it’s second cd, Solarists featuring myself, Nick Millevoi on guitar, Ed Ricart on bass, and the great Kevin Shea on drums. This is a really awesome, burning record that was a blast to make. Definitely check it out.
There’s plenty more info and lots of sounds all around the website, so please browse around and enjoy!
Thanks for visiting,
