New Album

Off Beat would like to congratulate our friend Daniel Glass on the release of The David Glass Trio’s new album BAM! The Trio is made up of exceptional musicians Daniel Glass on drums, Sean Harkness on guitar and Michael O’Brien on bass.

According to Glass the trio has been playing together off and on for more than six years. It took the pandemic to create the impetus for the band to capture their “musical mission” in a studio setting. The end result is BAM!.  

Daniel has been a close confidant of this blog appearing as our interviewee in DRUMHEAD magazine twice and as the writer of the Foreword in our book The Long Roll

Since 2010, Daniel has been the Monday night house drummer at the legendary Birdland Jazz Club in NYC. For 19 years, Daniel was a member of the powerhouse swing septet Royal Crown Revue, who are credited with pioneering the swing resurgence of the 1990s-2000s. 

BAM! captures Daniel’s gift as both a drummer and composer. According to the band’s website This album showcases the trio’s high-powered, freewheeling approach to group improvisation. Features an enticing blend of originals and some truly unique covers (including a wicked take on “Smoke On The Water”).
