City, State, etc.:
Dan Rose is a jazz guitar player, composer, producer and recording engineer. At 17 years of age he migrated from his hometown of Elmira, New York to New York City, and then on to San Francisco several years later. Here he studied with Jerry Hahn and Steve Reible, and fell under the influence of Barney Kessel, Tal Farlow, Kenny Burrell and Jim Hall.
In 1973-74 he toured and recorded with the Paul Bley Band, during which time he was introduced to Carla Bley's music; this would greatly influence his music conceptualization and composition.
For five years Dan worked as an organizer and perfomer in Free Life Communications, the organization founded by Dave Liebman and Richie Bierach for the promotion of "new music" by means of 60 to 100 concerts and workshops annually.
Dan helped develop and performed in the New York Loft Jazz Celebrations festivals. In 1979 he recorded and composed "CLOSE OPPOSITES", released on the Alacra label. He moved to Europe where he performed in clubs with his own band and as a sideman. In 1981 Dan Rose returned to New York to continue playing in clubs and concentrate on composing. In 1992 he recorded "CONVERSATIONS," released on Enja Records and featuring Steve Swallow and John Betsch.
