Dr. Daniel Puccio is a Phoenix based composer/arranger, multi-instrumentalist and educator.   A saxophonist comfortable in multiple genres, he has performed with such notable artists as the Temptations, the Four Tops, Chris Potter, Dave Holland, Jerry Lewis, and Bernard Purdie.  He is one of the original members of the Bobby Streng Saxomble, and is a prominently featured soloist on the group’s premier recording, “Live At The Firefly”.  In 2010 he traveled to Cuba, where he studied the role of the saxophone in Cuban music, and performed with numerous Cuban ensembles, including Palmas y Cañes.  He is the founder of the Positivity Project—a series of mixed media collaborations using music, live video and dance.

Seen and heard at prestigious venues across Phoenix and Los Angeles, Michael Collins‘ style as a pianist is ever-evolving, though you’ll always hear plenty of chops, bebop, and the lyrical sensitivity which personifies Michael Collins. To jazz lovers and musicians around the world, Mike’s style as a composer is unique, imaginative, and worth checking out!
