„…the saxophonist, endowed with a beautiful technique, plays, with sobriety and feeling, very pretty themes. We sometimes think of a Paul Desmond in less ethereal form.“ Daniel Gindrat on JAZZ One More Time Magazin
Daniel Gaggioli changed in his youth from clarinet to saxophone. His musical curiosity led him to train as a classical saxophonist and jazz musician at the Conservatory of Fribourg and at the music academy in Bern. Using the many possibilities that the saxophone offers, he gathered experiences as an improviser, in a saxophone quartet, as a soloist or chamber musician, in orchestras or big bands. He lives with his family in Thun and teaches saxophone at the Freiburg Conservatory.
