Danny Kusz – Eruption
The smooth jazz genre is very well staffed with saxophonists. Younger “unfamiliar” successors are pushing to the market to get their place at the fire. One of these players is Danny Kusz, named one of the hippest jazz cats in Minneapolis.
Lost In The Groove (2007) with renowned Twin Cities keyboardist Ricky Peterson, best known as David Sanborns musical director for 30 years, was his debut album. His sophomore project Sexy.Funk :: Velvet.Jazz (2014) received high acclaims.
In 2016 he returned with his third album Eruption. In the past, Smooth Jazz was critically titled by jazz purists as “Elevator music”. With a little wink of the eye Danny calls the starting track Elev8tor Muzik. His song is the perfect answer. With his enraged sax he stamps every criticism into the ground.
