Danielsson's childhood was an especially musical one, his first instrument was the harmonica which he started playing at the age of two. By age eight he was playing violin, which he continued to play and study for roughly five years. Around this time he became interested in jazz music and started to play the double bass. By the time he was fifteen, Danielsson was playing professionally. Having studied at the Stockholm Royal Academy of Music (1962–1966), he began to play with well-known Scandinavian musicians such as Eje Thelin, Bobo Stenson, Jan Garbarek and took up international collaborations, e.g. with Lee Konitz and Steve Kuhn.

Over the years, Danielsson has worked with various acclaimed musicians, among them Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett, Kenny Wheeler, Geri Allen, Michel Petrucciani, Charles Lloyd, Peter Erskine, Elvin Jones, Ben Webster, Charlie Shavers, George Russell, Albert Mangelsdorff, Enrico Rava, Collin Walcott, Tomasz Stańko and John Taylor. He has also led and co-led several bands in Sweden, and has released several respective recordings as well.
