You can listen to two clips on youtube, each on a different guitar.. for more info on these beautiful handcrafted archtops check out http://www.elferinkguitars.com .

CD Hotlist

My Cd is featured on Rick Anderson’s CD Hotlist for December…!

“a beautifully multicolored palette of sounds and very nicely balancing tonal and harmonic sweetness with creative exploration. Highly recommended.”


And another nice review from Draai Om je Oren, “the jazz tradition is in good hands with Daan Kleijn” ..!



If you haven’t got a copy yet, it’s available on iTunes, Amazon from me personally and, yes….Spotify!

My Cd ‘TRIO’ is traveling all over the world, very happy to read these kind words….!


“A brilliant debut album!” –  De Telegraaf (NL)

“Das darf man wirklich eine Entdeckung nennen, Erstaunlich!” –  Jazz Podium (DE)

“단 클라인의 기타 톤은 전통적이란 말보다 근본주의적이란 표현이 어울릴 만큼 순수하고 정갈하다.”  - Jazz People (KR)

“Great melodic imagination, a beautiful sound and a strong musical personality” – Jazzism (NL)

“It’s enjoyable first thing in the morning and late at night, and it grows on you in the way any art does when it’s thoughtful as well as beautiful…” – Allaboutjazz.com (USA)
