Dan Weinstein is a prolific violinist and trombonist, and an occasional music composer in the southern California music scene. Weinstein has recorded in widely disparate genres during the past three decades, but is generally known for live jazz performances. His best-known credits come from his live sessions with Ray Charles and the Jacksons. As with most Los Angeles-based musicians, much of his other credited works are film-related. His salsa and Latin jazz band, Viva, was a pioneer on the A&R circuit during the growth of the Los Angeles local music scene. Dan is musical arranger and performer in various bands and ensembles including most notably Suzy Williams & Her Solid Senders.
