The bands new bassist Danny Zanker ( spent his youth in England, Israel and Texas. The resulting cultural confusion, coupled with a formal education in jazz, laid the foundation for his musicianship. Moving to New York in May of 1995 helped him consolidate all his influences into an innovative and exciting playing style which features elements of jazz, blues, Middle Eastern, heavy metal, funk and avant garde. Danny is also an accomplished and prolific composer, with his compositions representing a natural extension of his concepts on the bass: complex yet danceable rhythms, lyricism and lots of emotional intensity. He currently can be heard leading his quartet, âAnti-Elevator Missionâ, at Smalls and Tagine. His playing is also prominently featured in Travis Sullivanâs Bjorkestra, the George Dulin Disband, the Yutaka Uchida Group, Souren Baronianâs Taksim, and Shusmo at venues which include the Knitting Factory, Makor, Joeâs Pub, Cornelia St. Cafe, and the BAM Cafe.
