Dan DeChellis Jazz Trio
This evenings performance will consist of original material from the latest release, “My Age of Anxiety” as well as some newer compositions.
The music of Dan DeChellis combines his love of pop tunes, rock and jazz as well ambient and classical. Dan is an improviser at heart and enjoys stretching his tunes when applicable. His music consists of melody, emotion, energy and spontaneous adventure. Born on classic rock, schooled in classical music, matured on jazz, aged with ambient music, he is a fan of all music and styles.
He has released over 8 CD’s of purely improvised music on his own label, Sachimay Records. Dan is also a member of the Hassay / DeChellis / Nakatani Trio with whom he has released two CD’s on the German Label, Konnex Records. He is a member of two rock bands, Grey Sky Turn and Four the Day and a professor of music at Moravian College where he directs the Improvised Music Ensemble (MIME).

“Here and elsewhere, Herbie Hancock‘s imprint is obvious, as is a strong western classicism. This is not to suggest that DeChellis is simply channeling Hancock, but more a matter of building his own unique voice through the iconic pianist’s influence.” AllAboutJazz
