Dan Faehnle: There is little doubt that jazz guitar has entered a new and exciting realm when Dan Faehnle takes the stage.
Beginning in 2000, Faehnle stepped into the guitar chair with Diana Krall, performing on numerous world tours, television shows, radio, and media events. As an integral part of the Diana Krall quartet for three years, Dan garnered accolades from such publications as the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, JazzTimes, and Downbeat magazines, as well as many international publications.
While based in Portland, Oregon, Dan established relationships with such legendary jazz artists as Leroy Vinnegar, Chuck Israels, Dave Frishberg, and Dick Berk. His ongoing association with these musicians has led to numerous live performances and CD recordings. Faehnle has also worked with such noted musicians as Joey DeFrancesco, Eddie Harris, Clark Terry, Zoot Sims, and Jeff Hamilton. Other significant colleagues have been Mel Brown, Ron Steen, Nancy King, Dave Friesen, and Rebecca Kilgore.
Faehnle's recording credits begin with his own debut release, My Ideal, a straight-ahead jazz CD that showcases Faehnle's strength of melodic content and groove. My Ideal also features longtime friend and pianist Larry Fuller, bassist Ed Bennett, pianist Tony Pacini, and Mel Brown on drums. Other recording credits include CDs with Leroy Vinnegar, Chuck Israels, Dave Frishberg, Rebecca Kilgore, Ben Wolfe, Dick Berk and Tom Grant. Dan also appears on the CD Sympathique with the popular band Pink Martini.
