I didn't know Dan well but in the few times we talked you felt like you knew him for a million years. Amazing trumpet player. I'm really feeling for my friends Mike Harvey and Jim White who were really good friends with Dan. I also am thinking about Dan's student Daniel who I met at Ellington this year and is the greatest HS lead trumpeter I've heard. He is a great testament to Dan and honors him well!
