His first major influence Joe King Oliver brought about the 1966 formation of his "Jazz O' Maniacs". Daniel would later develop an increasing devotion to the music of swing era stylists. He has since formed a number of other groups including "Swing Feeling" and become interested even more so in the origins of New Orleans jazz.
