Daniel Sky is a trumpeter currently studying at Berklee College of Music and Berklee Global Jazz Institute. The institute offers him the opportunity to collaborate with one of the best jazz musicians such as Danilo Perez (Wayne Shorter Quartet), Terri Lyne Carrington , Joe Lovano, Dave Liebman, George Garzone, and John Patitucci.
Daniel has been working on his debut release for some time now. His biggest musical dream is to record and share his debut album (which will be the fruit of the work of an unbelievable group of talented artists: all at the top of the music world) ) with the public.
These artists are people who feel and understand the music of our times the way he feels about it.
Right now, Daniel has unique once in a lifetime opportunity to play with one of the best players in the world:
o Kenny Werner – jazz pianist, composer, and lecturer who performed in past with Elvin Jones, Dizzy Gillespie, Charles Mingus, Stan Getz, Toots Thielemans, and contemporary artists as Chris Potter, Esperanza Spalding, Path Metheny, Ambrose Akinmusire and John Scofield. Kenny Werner is also very well known by publishing his book “Efortless Mastery Liberating The Master Musicians Within”

o Billy Kilson – Grammy award-winning drummer, composer. Very important member of Dave Holland, Dianne Reeves, Chris Botti, and George Duke in the past.

With featuring of also other musicians that I met at Berklee who are the best of Berklee ready to have major careers of their own (Anton Derevyenko, Stefano Battaglia, Kento Tsubosaka, Julian Pardo).
To be able to accomplish this exciting project and graduate Berklee College of Music with the best debut album, Daniel needs your help to raise the recording budget.
The goal is to raise $9000.
This budget will cover all expenses of 2 days studio recording session, fees for musicians, producer and engineer as well as for printing CD’s. This is a world class studio and as mentioned, world-class artists.
