Album Notes
'Portal' is an inspired solo piano effort, a 17-part suite of improvised sections that flow superbly and cover a great deal of terrain…. I was most impressed with the wide range of feelings, textures, intersecting lines and ideas that emerge throughout this wonderful disc…. I found this disc to be immensely rewarding on a variety of levels. Daniel Kelly will be celebrating the release of this gem with a solo piano set at The Stone on Sunday, March 15th at 8pm. Those in the know should be in attendance. - Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery

Kelly admires artists across genres who have embraced the polyphonic, orchestral nature of the grand piano, plumbing melodic possibilities, harmonies and dissonances, multiple layers and cross-references, rhythms and counterpoint to map otherwise inaccessible sonic spheres and mental spaces. But he imitates no one. – Howard Mandel, from liner notes

Award-winning composer and pianist, Daniel Kelly has developed a unique and personal approach to jazz, free improvisation and modern chamber music. Daniel has performed and recorded with a wide range of artists, including Michael Brecker, Lauryn Hill, Ray Barretto, David Murray, Don Byron, Bobby Sanabria, William Parker, John Zorn, Donny McCaslin, David Binney, Brad Shepik, Joel Harrison, Nestor Torres, Iva Bittova, Candido, Joe Lovano and many others. He performs regularly with his trio, bassist Harvie S and the genre-busting modern chamber ensemble the Bang on a Can All-Stars. Daniel has toured throughout the US, Europe, Southeast Asia, Africa and Central America. In addition to the several CDs he has recorded as sideman, he has recorded highly acclaimed CDs as a leader, including World and Duets with Ghosts - which features Daniel’s unique approach to electronic sound manipulation and sampler. Daniel’s latest CD Portal is an improvised solo piano suite that arose from his continuing series of improvised solo piano concerts. His quartet was the recipient of the 2007 Chamber Music America/ASCAP Adventurous Programming Award.
