Danny's music has been described as "Combining intellect with soul, spirit, and passion. The result for the listener is listening and feeling his heart!" (Terell Stafford).
Born in Los Angeles in 1989, Danny Janklow was recognized during his high school career by Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra as triple instrument "Outstanding Soloist" on tenor saxophone, flute and clarinet.
Danny recently graduated Temple University Boyer College of Music and Dance where he was mentored by saxophone legend Dick Oatts and incredible trumpeter Terell Stafford. In 2010, Danny won 1st place in the North American Saxophone Alliance competition held in Athens, Georgia. In August 2012, he took first place in the Detroit Jazz Festival's International Saxophone Competition, ranking him as the top young jazz saxophonist in North America.
Quickly becoming recognized for his soulful, yet innovative voice on the alto saxophone, Danny frequently plays in the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra at the Village Vanguard in NYC. Danny has performed internationally in venues ranging from the Apollo in Harlem to the BimHuis in Amsterdam.
He has been fortunate to share the stage with jazz masters such as Benny Golson, Jimmy Heath, James Moody, Wynton Marsalis and Branford Marsalis. Danny currently resides in Los Angeles where he is taking the scene by storm with his inspiring performances.
