Danny Moss Jnr.

" Propulsive lines and 'long note' style "

Internationally renowned double bassist Danny Moss Jnr is an unashamed disciple of the great Ray Brown! Time, tone, swing, and variation of lines depending on the soloist are the hallmark of his playing. A few years ago he flew to Chicago to listen to his idol, who was appearing with his trio. During this week he played golf every day with Ray who was a golf 'nut'. Danny, who is an ex Australasian Tour Pro was able to help Rays game, and at night soak up the wonderful Bass playing of 'The Master'.

Danny's propulsive lines and 'long note' style have earned him a considerable reputation. Indeed one of Europe's top piano players John Critchinson, (long time member of Ronnie Scott's quartet), dubbed Danny 'The Pathfinder' due to his driving and harmonically sympathetic bass lines on a recent European tour.

Danny can be heard on many fine recordings with world renowned artists such as Danny Moss MBE, Jeanie Lambe, Sir John Dankworth, Don Burrows, John Wheatley, Martin Drew ,Scott Hamilton, Tony Coe , Simon Spillett etc. For many years Danny joined his illustrious parents for a 3 month extensive tour of Festivals and Jazz clubs in Europe. Danny describes touring with Danny, Jeanie and some of the greatest pianists and drummers in the world as an "enormous buzz".

He has performed at most of the major European Jazz Festivals incl: Brecon, Edinburgh, Foehr, Corsham, Galway, Bridgenorth, Berlin, Munich, Hof, Zurich, Vienna etc, etc. Danny was a member of guitar great Hank Marvin's Quartet for 3 and a half years playing music inspired by Django Reinhardt . The group toured widely.
