What can I say that I haven't already about Dan? He is an absolute freak. In fact, most of clips below were sight-read, first take (Dan is famous for that). I've seen Dan operate in the studio, and it's the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen. As a sax and woodwind player myself, he is my hero. If I told him that, he'd just tell me go listen to Bird and Cannonball (and he has) - which is the beauty of Dan. He is my mentor and one of the nicest, warmest, most giving people I've ever known - so much so that I've modeled my career after him. Lastly, he's put in so much peerless and amazing work (on so many different woodwind instruments) over the years that I can't keep track. He is the BEST in the business. Period. All you have to do is listen... - GW.
Dan is also the saxophone voice for Bleeding Gums Murphy on "The Simpsons"
