Dan Gaynor: Coffeeshop Conversations #119 The pianist speaks his mind

By TOM D'ANTONI //  Jazz pianist, clever fellow and not out for fame.

Well I see you’re paying another visit to World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th and Glisan, at least digitally, for another OMN Coffeeshop Conversation.

We’re coming up on our third anniversary at World Cup. That’s a lot of talking friends. We’re going to be expanding our horizons in the months to come. We’ll still be here, but we’re going to be expanding our range of guests. Gotta keep it fresh, you know.

Today we’re talking with pianist Dan Gaynor, a clever fellow and a great player.

He’s a Jazzman, although he can play any kind of music. You may have seen him with Bobby Torres, Chuck Israels’ Orchestra, Nancy King and many others. He’s one of those fellows I’ve encountered over the years, but have never really sat down and talked with. It’s something I’ve been looking forward to.

You’re going to enjoy Dan Gaynor.

 Here's part of the concert that Dan talks about, May 8, 2010 at the Palace Theater in Silverton, Oregon as part of the Silverton Wine and Jazz Festival. Video by Cary Ray.
