A major participant in the small-group golf swing movement from the 1980s and ’90s, Dan Barrett’s trombone is equally in the home in Dixieland and golf swing settings. He began on trombone in senior high school and performed in California using the South Frisco Jazz Music group as well as the Golden Eagle Jazz Music group, two good trad groups. In the urging of Howard Alden, Barrett relocated to NY in 1983 where he caused the Widespread Depressive disorder Orchestra, performed at Eddie Condon’s golf club, and in 1985 was with Benny Goodman’s Orchestra. Barrett found popularity through his group of recordings (both like a leader so that as a sideman) with Concord; among his many tasks had been co-leading a quintet with Howard Alden that was similar to John Kirby’s music group from the 1940s, despite having completely different instrumentation. Dan Barrett, who also used Buck Clayton’s big music group, switched towards the Arbors label in the 1990s where he became musical movie director and recorded regularly.
