I have sad news on the passing of Phoenix Az Jazz & Gypsy Jazz guitarist Chris Alan Daniels. Chris passed away Friday, July 11th in Phoenix surrounded by his family. Chris had a short and courageous battle w/ cancer. Many may not know of his contribution to GJ because of his low profile, not traveling or recording much, with the exception of him performing at DFLA. Chris is also known by many from his fine paintings including the Django '53 oil print that many have hanging in their homes and studio's. Chris was the most determined, committed guitarist I have have ever had the pleasure to be a friend and band mate with for 8 years. I will miss him and regret we had such a short time together as brothers...
Not only was he a fine skilled and talented musician and artist but a philosopher and mathematician that would challenge the sharpest of wit's...
Dunn, Collins, D'Angelico, Gibson, Gitane, and Yamaha guitars were graced by his touch and passion for music...

Latcho Drom Chris...

I'll miss you brother and value the time we had together on this planet...
