The Daniel Criado Project is created through the idea of merging the rich sonorities of Jazz along to the rhythmic sounds of Colombia. This Jazz ensemble is able to flow into a vast array of styles from the Swing era, Bebop and Hardbop, playing songs from the American Song Book and add their own flavor to Daniel’s arrangements to make it sound rhythmically fresh. Daniel has been touring with his Jazz group around New York State featuring the powerful talents of dynamic musicians. Additionally, the group invites different artists to the ensemble making every performance unique. Therefore, this group is constantly merging harmonies and rhythms, as guest musicians join the band expanding these traditional styles. Important musicians from the New York Jazz scene include the great bassist Sean Smith (Gerry Mulligan, Phil Woods, Benny Carter, Johnny Griffin, Lee Konitz, Joel Frahm, Bill Charlap, among many others), Gabriel Guerrero (Gene Jackson, Danilo Perez, Bruce Gertz, Jerry Bergonzi, Roy Hargrove, etc.), Miho Sasaki (Asakusa jazz contest awardee), Andrew Latona (Jon Faddis, Renee Rosnes, Tom Harrell, Bill Charlap, ect.), Haeun Joo (Birdland, Blue Note), Saul Cosme (Jazz at Lincoln Center, Blue Note)  and Mikey Migliore (Blue Note, Birdland, Jazz at Lincoln Center).
