DAN BOLTON QUARTET - THE JAZZ SESSIONS
Date Sunday 27th August
From Melbourne via New York City, Dan Bolton is a singer/songwriter/pianist with a unique sound.
In the tradition of Ray Charles, Nat King Cole and Shirley Horn, Australian born Dan Bolton’s talent as a singer/pianist has taken him around the world. Dan has performed his shows throughout the US, Japan, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand. He has spent many years in New York City where he carved out a niche with his own act and as musical director for Hollywood, Broadway and cabaret star, Nathan Lee Graham and Laura Hart, singer with the Glenn Miller Orchestra.
His songs are 21st Century standards, incorporating elements of jazz, pop and Latin American styles. His music is reminiscent of George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin but with a modern twist.
Where the new meets the old is but one way to describe Dan Bolton’s music. His songwriting delves into the rich tapestries and flavours of jazz and pop. At its core however, remains an individual expression that is very now. This is music with broad appeal for anyone who appreciates the art of good songwriting with groove
Appearing at The Bison Bar for the first time, Dan will be performing with his quartet: Andrew Doo (drums), Zac Zakrewski (bass) and John Stefulj (woodwinds).
"Dan Bolton is a world-class songwriter and performer. I am especially impressed with his prolific song-writing ability; being able to capture the listener with great storytelling and sense of melody. It has been my absolute pleasure to work with him and record his music." - Adrian Cunningham (New York City based sax player)
