Central Florida Jazz Society Presents: Per Danielsson Group
Jazz pianist, composer, arranger, writer and Associate Professor of Jazz Piano at the University of Central Florida, Per Danielsson is a native of Stockholm, Sweden. Growing up with a jazz guitar-playing father, Per was exposed to the sounds of Oscar Peterson and Bill Evans at an early age. After formal piano studies in Sweden, which included lessons with Robert Malmberg and world-renowned jazz pianist Bengt Hallberg, his love of jazz brought him across the ocean to attend the internationally acclaimed North Texas State University.
Per is an active performer, appearing often as a guest artist, soloist, clinician, and sideman. His career has included performances with many leading jazz artists and entertainers such as Louis Bellson, Clark Terry, Rosemary Clooney, Don Braden, Lynn Seaton, Eric Alexander, Bobby Shew, Nick Brignola and Maureen McGovern. As the pianist for Chuck Owen’s innovative big band, The Jazz Surge, Per has recently performed and/or recorded with Slide Hampton, Gerald Wilson, Randy Brecker, Mike Mainieri, Adam Nussbaum, Frank Foster, Stephan Harris, Neena Freelon, Bill Holman, Karrin Allyson, Bob Brookmeyer, Ingrid Jensen, John Abercrombie and Danny Gottlieb. He has also performed with Swedish jazz legends Arne Domnerus and Jan Alan.
