Studio Dan was founded by the trombonist and composer Daniel Riegler in 2005 as part of Vienna’s first JazzWerkstatt festival. The name of the 17-member ensemble alludes to Frank Zappa‘s album “Studio Tan” and is at the same time a nod to its founder. With versatility and innovativeness, the ensemble moves across genres and explores the area of experimental and new music, improvisation, and jazz right up to prop rock. New ideas and concepts and the dedication to experimenting are the constants when dealing with the material. The success the ensemble has enjoyed validates the approach. It was already awarded the German Records Critics’ Award and invitations to renowned festivals and performance venues are taking the ensemble on a seemingly endless journey.
