Danny Caron is a soulful and passionate guitarist who has played with some of the best musicians in America. His just released CD entitled "Good Hands" features some of the most soulful musicians in the San Francisco Bay Area including Jim Pugh from the Robert Cray Band on Hammond organ, Ron E. Beck from Tower of Power on drums, and two exquisite previously unreleased Charles Brown trio cuts with the legendary Charles Brown singing and playing piano, and Ruth Davies on https://www.tradebit.com addition you'll find some beautiful acoustic jazz cuts with John Wiitala (bass), Deszon Claiborne (drums), and John R Burr (piano) A couple of those are augmented by a burning horn section, with a few searing sax solos from Jeff Ervin and Charles McNeal.
"The tunes on this record are really homages to some of my favorite guitarists", says Caron. "Grant Green, Billy Butler, Johnny and Oscar Moore, Gatemouth Brown, T Bone Walker, and BB King - just to name a few of the obvious ones...I'm not trying to play like them-I never could-I'm just trying to thank them!"
Originally out of Silver Spring, Maryland, Danny moved to Austin, Texas and cut his teeth on the Crawfish circuit playing with singer-pianist Marcia Ball. He then worked with Zydeco king Clifton Chenier and his Red Hot Louisiana Band with whom he recorded the Grammy Award winning Album I'm Here in 1980. Relocating to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1981 he continued to freelance and eventually teamed up with the legendary singer and pianist Charles Brown.
Danny served as guitarist and musical director for Charles Brown from 1987 until Brown's death in 1999. He has played on numerous CD's and sessions with Charles Brown, Clifton Chenier, Bonnie Raitt, John Lee Hooker, Van Morrison, Ruth Brown, Etta Jones, John Clayton, Teddy Edwards, Gerald Wilson, Donald Fagen, Dr. John, Little Milton Campbell, John Hammond Jr. and many others.
*Danny is the featured guitarist on the Van Morrison produced John Lee Hooker album, "Don't Look Back" which won two Grammy Awards - one for Best Traditional Blues Recording, and the other for Best Collaboration, Van Morrison and John Lee Hooker.
He keeps up a busy schedule touring and performing most recently with Robben Ford, Barbara Morrison, Maria Muldaur and others. He continues working with Just Say Jazz, a group of Bay Area musicians dedicated to preserving and promoting jazz and blues awareness in primary schools. He is presently teaching courses at The Jazzschool in Berkeley California.
Recent projects include the film score to the motion picture 'johns' for which he and Mr. Brown wrote the music, and for which he composed the title song. The movie stars David Arquette and Lukas Haas.
