The Dan Pratt Quartet

CD release for "Hymn For The Happy Man"

Following two critically-acclaimed organ group outings, Dan heads in a new direction on Hymn for the Happy Man, his fourth recording overall and debut for his own Same Island Music imprint. The California native and longtime Brooklyn resident had never recorded a piano/bass/drums quartet record before, and he felt a need to explore this instrumentation that is such an essential strand to jazz’s DNA. On Hymn for the Happy Man, Dan is backed by the all-star rhythm section of Christian McBride on bass, Greg Hutchinson on drums, and Mike Eckroth on piano. Together, they realize seven well-crafted originals and breathe new life into one well-chosen standard. Look for its release on June 3rd.
