Artist Portrait

Daniel Humair

dr, *1938 CH, Geneva
Musician / Composer of Jazz

Swiss jazz drummer, composer, and painter. b. May 23, 1938 (Geneva, Switzerland) Enjoying the recognition of all, it is easier to name the musicians with whom he did not play than the opposite, because with the exception of Miles Davis or Sonny Rollins, he has played with most jazzmen of the last 50 years (...) Alongside his musician journey, Daniel Humair continues his vocation as a painter. Defining his own painting as "narrative abstraction", he has built a coherent work that demonstrates his passion for painting and his knowledge of art history.
