Dan Gottshall, a guy from the east coast of the US, plays lead trombone with The NDR Big Band. From 1993 until 2001 he was lead trombonist with the RIAS Big Band in Berlin.
Born in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, studied and lived in Baltimore, Maryland. Yay Baltimore!
Still, after so many homes: Pennsylvania, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Cologne, Berlin: Dan sees himself as a child of the universe who has finally landed in Hamburg.
In addition to contributing to more than 70 CDs Dan has performed and recorded with artists such as Chaka Khan, Al Jarreau, Lena Horne, Gary Thomas, Chuck Brown, Joao Bosco, Omar Sosa, Charlie Mariano, Peter Herbolzheimer┤s RC&B, The Clayton/Hamilton Big Band, Bobby McFerrin, The Funk Brothers, Norma Winstone, Gladys Knight, Pacquito D' Rivera, Kenny Wheeler, etc. etc. etc. dot dot dot....
Dan Gottshall is EXTREMELY humble and feels that biographies are embarrasing.
