Life and career

Daniel Weidlein is a versatile musician originally hailing from Boulder, Colorado. A recent graduate from the University of Southern California’s Thornton School of Music, Weidlein now resides in Los Angeles and works professionally as a saxophonist, composer, producer, singer, and educator.

As a performer, Weidlein has played with jazz luminaries such as Frank Wess, Bob Mintzer, and Joshua Redman, and has made commercial appearances including on the television show “Glee,” in the Academy Award-winning film "Whiplash," and on the third season of NBC's primetime show "The Sing Off." He also works regularly as a studio musician on saxophone, flute, vocals, and keyboards and has recorded on film scores, hip-hop tracks, and world music albums as well as jazz recordings. One such jazz recording entitled “Fourteen Channels” on the Tapestry Records label cracked the top 50 on the US Billboard jazz charts and featured Weidlein’s improvisational work as well as his composition “An Ounce of Hope.”

Weidlein’s own band, The Vintage Modernists, released its debut album “Cityscape” to very positive reviews and can be heard on iTunes, Spotify, or anywhere else the mouse can click. His other pursuits include work as a composer where he has written everything from large group jazz pieces to film scores to a recently completed full length musical called “The Grifters.”

Additionally, Weidlein owns The B(e)at Cave recording studio and has produced numerous projects including albums for hip-hop sensation Clive Aden, jazz musicians such as Bob Mintzer and Greg Johnson, singer/songwriter Axel Mansoor, Katie Ohh from NBC's The Winner Is, the Transcendence Theater Company, and an award winning A Cappella EP for his collegiate singing group, The Trojan Men.

Daniel is also a highly regarded music educator in both the Los Angeles and Colorado communities. Along with teaching privately, he has taught at the Stanford Jazz Workshop as a Jazz Mentor Fellow, has formerly directed the middle school jazz bands at the Foshay Learning Center in South Central LA and taught group improvisation classes at the C's in the Summer jazz camp in Lafayette, CO.
