Daniel’s debut solo recording has been called “powerful” (Christos Hatzis) and “truly brilliant” (Mike Murley).  

Dani earned a JUNO nomination for his studio work in the Jerry Granelli Trio, and his touring performances praised: “an extraordinary reed player” (Jazz Chronicles).  The trio’s second recording, in collaboration with Mike Murley, won a 2016 ECMA for Best Jazz Recording.

His duo album with Sageev Oore, Radical Cycle, was recorded for CBC, lauded as “stunning” and “masterful” (Classical Modern Music Review), and nominated for a 2013 ECMA for Best Classical Recording. His duo album with Florian Hoefner is due in January 2023 on Alma Records.


Daniel’s music is featured in over twenty specials for CBC and Bravo in collaborations with artists across different traditions, including soundtracks for his sister Jasmine Oore’s award–winning films, and electronic, orchestral, and big band compositions commissioned by new music and jazz festivals.

He cofounded (and often confounded), fronted, and composed much of the music for the popular award–winning group Gypsophilia, before he left to live in the desert.

He collaborates across disciplines, sometimes with himself in the role of dancer (for Sara Shelton Mann, Cory Bowles), choreographer (for composer Paul Schoenfield and for Alain Trudel conducting Stravinsky), actor (for 2b theatre-Hannah Moscovitch and for Jasmine Oore), and performance artist (at Festival of New Dance).

“Oore’s palpable fragility . . .  is one of the most devastating things I’ve ever witnessed in a theatre.” (Cult MTL)
