Dániel Váczi was born on 1 October 1972. He played the violin for ten years, then at the age of 17 he started studying the alto saxophone. Subsequently he also took up the rarely applied sopranino saxophone. In 1998 he obtained a diploma at the Loránd Eötvös University of Sciences as a biologist. His saxophone teacher was Mihály Borbély, and his studied music theory and composing with Iván Madarász. He attended the Jazz Department of the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music or a year. In the autumn of 2001 he founded his trio playing original compositions with bassist Balázs Horváth and drummer Zsolt Sárvári Kovács, who has since been replaced by András Mohay. Their music is characterized by large-scale improvisations wedged between strictly composed themes; stylistically a certain amalgam of modern jazz and contemporary music. Their debut album can be expected to appear in 2005 with the sponsorship of the Artisjus Foundation. Besides his trio, he also plays in the bands Kada, Fragment, and the Plastic Septet. He has also recorded with Gábor Gadó, Yonderboi, Timeles Life, János Vázsonyi, Nigun, Chalaban, and Gábor Winand, and he has even composed a piece for Winand’s latest, award winning album.
