Dan Krimm

I am a fretless electric bass guitarist, focusing mostly on modern jazz for my own compositions and band-leading (a lot of “ECM” type music, but with some degree of funk/rock-jazz fusion added).  I have a wider range as a sideman, from avant garde free improv to singer-songwriters working in folk/pop/rock veins.  I mostly focus on original music of one kind or another, not much into cover band work, though I’ll do occasional covers that are in accord with my personal muse.

I had classical violin training, but gave up that instrument decades ago.  Also play a bit of finger-style nylon-string (6-string) guitar, mostly for composing and for my own private enjoyment, but I hardly ever perform in public on it.  I cut my jazz teeth in college and in NYC for about 15 years thereafter.

I received an NEA Jazz Fellowship grant in the mid-80s and have recorded three studio albums and a live concert recording from which several tunes were taken for a live album.

Added to that are a few sideman recordings along the way.


As a sideline I dabble a bit in abstract photography, re-contextualization of surface artifacts on objects as elements for composition in its own right.  I’ve also experimented with digital processing to create enhanced works from photographic sources.  On occasion I may participate in group exhibits in the area (see image gallery).
