Known on the Toronto jazz scene as a talented, hard-working, dedicated musician, Ori Dagan’s style is inspired by improvisational jazz masters such as Ella Fitzgerald, Charlie Parker, Lester Young, Anita O’Day and Sheila Jordan (with whom he recorded a duet in 2017). In recent years Dagan started performing on the international circuit. His ambitious project “Nathaniel: A Tribute to Nat King Cole” was the first visual album in jazz history, an award-winning collection of standards and originals that was released as both a recording and a collection of music videos. “Nathaniel” resulted in invitations to headline the TanJazz jazz festival in Tangier, Morocco; performances in Seoul at South Korea’s first Public Diplomacy Week; and an official showcase at South-By-South-West in Austin Texas. During the pandemic, Ori’s online weekly live-streamed concert JAZZ IT UP garnered over 1 million views collectively with themes ranging from The Rat Pack and Peggy Lee to Disney and the 80’s, connecting him with followers across the world. His new album of original music “Click Right Here” will be released in May 2022.
