Danny Bacher

"The secret of serious fun is not to take too seriously, something this prodigiously talented singer/songwriter/saxophonist knows in his bones." -The New York Times


Danny Bacher is a singer, saxophonist, consummate performer and a fresh new face as jazz’s newest bright light – and man does he swing!  His clean, crisp delivery is reminiscent of the true greats in entertainment. An engaging stage presence, a smooth-as-silk voice, and his gift as a storyteller all come together to complete this package. Add to that his saxophone prowess and you have one of the hottest musicians on the scene today.
 
Having honed his chops in NYC, the jazz capital of the world, Bacher exudes the emotion of a seasoned veteran performer, mixed with his own youthful vigor and bounce. He has a palpable innate magnetism that can’t be taught. From his catchy, toe-tappin’ renditions of rare gems to classic takes on the Great American Songbook, Bacher is always at home on the stage and presents his case with elegance, style and class.

“Jazz has always been music that resonates with me,” Danny notes. “At my Grandparents’ house we listened to their fantastic collection of big band and swing records and to great radio programs like ‘Make Believe Ballroom.’ I was also lucky to have one of the best college jazz programs in my own ‘back yard’ at William Paterson University. I spent countless hours playing sax and singing in their ensembles while still in high school. Watching great artists like Joe Williams, Clark Terry and Sonny Rollins, gave me a deeper understanding early on of the need to develop an indelible sound and style as a musician.”

On his first CD debut on Whaling City Sound, Danny presented ‘Swing That Music!’ – A musical tribute to the three Louis…Armstrong, Prima & Jordan - to rave reviews with an “A” list band of jazz royalty including cornetist Warren Vaché (Rosemary Clooney/Annie Ross); drummer Bill Goodwin (Phil Woods); guitarist Howard Alden (Woody Allen films); Jazz tenor sax legend Houston Person (Etta Jones, Freddy Cole), Grammy nominated trombonist & arranger, Pete McGuinness; pianist/arranger Jason Taborek; and saxophonist David Demsey (William Patterson College).  Adding to this beautiful rainbow of sound is ‘rising star’ Cyrille Aimee on two outstanding duets with Bacher, forming a truly musical dream team.

Danny Bacher (pronounced BACK-er) was born too late to experience these giants first-hand, but he has heard their music and received their message. Bacher’s singing, his soprano saxophone playing, and his serious yet outgoing approach to the material in this homage to Louis A, J and P shine new light on vintage material. Stay tuned for his next recording, ‘Still Happy,’ due to be released late February 2018.



Quotes

"Bacher delivers scrupulous control, hip phrasing and the kind of savory scat I haven't heard from a man in some time, certainly not one so young!" 
-Broadway World

"A swinger that could single handedly ignite a whole new jazz craze." 
-Midwest Record

"Swing is a given; it's under Bacher's skin like bones.  Arrangements celebrate and respect. Call/respond numbers are performed with brio. Solo vocals have attitude, but sound authentic coming from this young man."
-Cabaret Scenes

"Danny is a rare artist. A swingin' musician, who is a wonderful singer, and one who really understands and delivers the lyrics! What a concept!"

- Legendary vocalist Marilyn Maye

“Danny makes serious music without pretension, but often with a touch of humor. He can also sing and play a ballad beautifully.”
- Houston Person, jazz saxophonist

“Danny Bacher is reminiscent of ‘triple talent’ icons such as Louis Armstrong and Sammy Davis, Jr. He's a serious jazz musician who can hold his own improvising on saxophone or scatting with the best musicians on the scene…he has a natural flair for comedy and a voice full of soul.”
- Roseanna Vitro, Grammy®-nominated jazz vocalist and educator


"Working with Danny was a ball. His energy is infectious, his sense of fun and humor is always present in his music, and he can really scat and play!"
- Pete McGuinness, Grammy®-nominated arranger

“A new client came to see me and I was knocked out by the sound after he played 3 notes on his Selmer Mk VI soprano. Little did I know that I'd be knocked out again 3 hours later when I googled him. He said he was a singer/ soprano sax player. He's definitely a soprano player, with a gorgeous, rich singing sound. Then I heard him sing and....wow! His name is Danny Bacher and he is the real deal- an entertainer with vocal and musical taste and chops. It was a real treat to hang with him and even more of a treat to hear him.”
- Joe Giardullo, Sopranoplanet
