Legendary musician and composer Eddie Daniels will headline the 28th Annual Cal State East Bay Jazz Festival when he performs in concert. The two-day festival, which runs all day both that Friday and Saturday, features instruction for and performances by high
school and college jazz bands and combos
from throughout Northern California.
Daniels will lead an instructional clinic for the young musicians and the visiting school music directors, and perform with them during Saturday's festival activities. Daniels has
toured and recorded with a variety of bands during a long and highly successful career. In 1989 he won a Grammy Award for playing the Roger Kellaway arrangement of “Memos from Paradise.” An acclaimed performer on the clarinet, Daniels first came to the attention of jazz enthusiasts as a tenor saxophonist
with the Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Orchestra
in the 1960s. “Eddie Daniels is probably the world’s greatest clarinet player in jazz,” said Dann Zinn, interim director of Cal State East Bay’s Jazz Studies program and himself an acclaimed and saxophone and jazz combo performer.
“As a jazz soloist, Eddie is one of the
greatest of all time. We are so thrilled to have him at this year’s festival.”
