Dan Kinzelman was born and raised in the USA but has been living in Italy since 2005. He quickly joined the band of Italian legend Enrico Rava as soloist, arranger and musical director. He collaborated with emerging talents: Giovanni Guidi, Simone Graziano, William Tatge. His work is characterized by a strongly irreverent streak, mixing a profound knowledge of jazz history with a voracious appetite for risk and sonic exploration, combining wildly distant musical languages into something disquieting but at the same time seductive. He is a central figure in Italy’s flowering music scene, his bands have performed at many important music festivals in EU and the USA.
