Hailing from Israel, Brooklyn resident Dan Weisselberg is a contemporary straight-ahead jazz bass player.
After over a decade of experimenting and learning the world of Jazz and western music, it is easy to hear many influences from both old school bass masters as Oscar Pettiford, Ray Brown, Paul Chambers, Bob Cranshaw, and Ron Carter, alongside bass players of our time – Pat O’leary, Ari Roland, Neal Miner, Tyler Mitchel, and Neal Caine to name a few.
The stylistic range of music Dan is mostly identified with is the great American songbook, as well as Be-Bop and Hard-Bop composers as: Horace Silver, Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Barry Harris etc…
His search for deep, warm sound has led him to use gut strings, and to aim for a clean, pure “acoustic” sound. This sound, combined with a wide and supportive sense of beat have made him a name among his peers, and respected by high caliber musicians such as- Grant Stewart, Michael Kanan, Tardo Hammer, Joe Magnarelli, Frank Basile, John Webber, Chris Flory, etc. With whom he plays on a regular basis.
