Dany Doriz

He began studying classical music on piano and saxophone. By age sixteen, Dany Doriz was introduced to the vibraphone. The mellow tones of the metal bars and tubes allured Dany to the point where he concentrated all of his musical efforts on the vibes.

Encouraged by legend, jazz violinist, Stephane Grappelli and by Memphis Slim, Dany toured France and Europe in concert. The tours led to national acclaim and in 1975 Dany had great pleasure of meeting Lionel Hampton, the greatest vibraphonist all time. A friendship developed and soon Dany joined Hampton and his band touring Europe. The tour led to a record session for Barclay records.

Edison, Benny Bailey, Arnett Cobb, Clark Terry, Red Holloway, Buster Cooper, Butch Miles, Wild Bill Davis and Eddie Jones.
