Pianist Dan Kramlich has established himself as one of Seattle’s most sought after performers, educators, and adjudicators. His style was informed by jazz legends Fred Hersch and Billy Hart, with whom he worked extensively while studying at Western Michigan University.
Dan can be heard on many recordings by local musicians, including Steve Treseler’s “Center Song,” the Vern Sielert Dektet’s “From There to Here,” Bernie Jacobs’ “One by One,” and Phil Parisot’s “Lingo” and “Creekside.”
He currently performs with his own group, the Dan Kramlich Grunge Trio, as well as the Javatown Swing Orchestra, Jennifer Kienzle, and many others.
Dan also maintains a busy teaching studio. He currently directs the jazz ensemble at Seattle Pacific University, teaches class piano at Bellevue College, and maintains a busy private teaching studio in Seattle.
