Dan Siegel

Smooth jazz keyboardist Dan Siegel has been helping to shape the genre since his recording debut in 1980. Born in Seattle and raised in Eugene, OR, Siegel started taking piano lessons at age eight and was fronting a rock band at 12. After attending the Berklee College of Music in Boston, he received a degree in composition from the University of Oregon and began recording his own works. Soon thereafter, well-known independent jazz label Inner City Records signed the young keyboardist, releasing 1980's Nite Ride, which featured guitarist Lee Ritenour. Siegel's second album for Inner City, 1981's The Hot Spot, was more successful and spent ten weeks in the Top Ten of Billboard's jazz chart. In 1983, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue film and television work, as well as a more active recording career.

Spending half of the decade composing TV and film scores as well as releasing several albums of varying interest, he signed with Epic in 1986 and began moving away from the ailing jazz fusion scene and into the adult contemporary jazz sound that he had been toying with all along. Highlights of this era include 1994's worldbeat-influenced Hemispheres and the urban-flavored Clairvoyance, released in 1998. Siegel spent the 1990s recording for a variety of labels, working with some of the bigger names in smooth jazz (Boney James, Larry Carlton, John Patitucci), and leading the hard bop combo Birds of a Feather. In 2000, Legacy Recordings released a greatest hits compilation called Along the Way: The Best of Dan Siegel. ~ Zac Johnson, Rovi

Dan is really good. I enjoy his smooth style it is so laid back you can feel the warm sun and the smell the ocean as you lay on the beach.
What about Boney, Stephen A? Do you know you are commenting under Dan S?? (Boney's good too, but this is D.S.'s page.)
What about Boney James?

Dan teaches at Mira Costa College in Oceanside and I had the chance to see him in concert last fall in the new 7 million dollar music theater and it was wonderful! Try to check out music in this new theater, the sound and the chairs are state of the art.
the best

Tom, you really know your music; Dan Siegel and Pat Metheny are the best! With all do respect to Lyle Mays, a Pat and Dan project would be unreal...
I love the smooth jazz sound and his is very enjoyable.

Sound So Good To Me. I Can Hear This ALL Day And My Clean Up My House.Im Just Lovin This.
New to me, but love him!
Dan Siegel is one of the very few musicians that I can honestly say I've loved every recording he's released and virtually evry song on those recordings. Although it's now almost 20 years old, Dan's recording entitled "Going Home" reamins my favorite release by him an it's still every bit as fresh and contemporary sounding today as when it was released in 1991. In some ways Dan is the Pat Matheny of piano.
