Singer-Sax Player Supreme Danny Bacher Makes Feinstein's/54 Below Debut
Swingin' singin' soprano saxophone player, Danny Bacher is making his Feinsteins/54 Below debut on Friday, December 21,2018 at 9:30 PM. The CD release concert celebrates the Festive Season and Bacher's new CD, STILL HAPPY. Appearing with him is his band: Broadway piano legend Allen Farnham ( The Lion King) and ace musicians, Dean Johnson (bass), Samuel Martinelli (drums), Harry Allen (tenor sax), and Charles Caranicas (trumpet).
Bacher brings out the humor and pizzazz of his tunes with his smooth-as-silk voice, storytelling skills, and soprano sax chops -- talents that have secured him a following in legendary jazz clubs such as Birdland, The Blue Note and beyond.
Bacher is an ascendant star with humor, talent, and joie de vivre -- all apparent and plentiful on STILL HAPPY. His performance is seasoned and all-pro, a mix of youthful vigor and finger-popping vet. He bounces from oldies and goodies to classic takes on the Great American Songbook, all the while infusing them with dazzle and style. Surrounded by quality, Bacher's voice and soprano sax truly rise to the occasion, especially on the predominantly upbeat material, like "Laughing at Life," Bernstein's "Lucky to Be Me," an updated "Hooray for Hollywood" and the title track. Bacher is always at home on the stage and presents his case with elegance and class.
