"Hey.....This man can really play! As long as I'm singing you will always have a job with me!"
  ~ Wilson Pickett

"The first time I heard Dan Cipriano play I must have been wearing sun glasses 'cause I could have sworn he was black!"
~ Gary U.S. Bonds

"Dan puts so much heart into it, so much fire, so much emotion, and he conveys all of this with a crystal clear technique. I love this guy.
~ Sam Andrew (Big Brother and the Holding Company, Janis Joplin,
Kosmic Blues Band, Love Janis Musical Director)

"What a fantastic and talented musician. I could sit and listen to Dan play for hours. Having him in my band was such a thrill because he made the sax parts so alive like they've never been before.  Thank you Dan, it was a great pleasure working with you.
~ Mike Smith (The Dave Clark 5)

"Dan’s musical performances shine both on stage & in the studio; his composition and arranging skills are exceptional. His audio production and studio expertise are evident in every production. With “” and its seamless integration of art, technical skill and commitment to customer satisfaction, Dan is transforming the way musicians and producers meet their need for incorporating the horn section into their productions."
                                       ~ Wayne June (Johnny Winter)

"Dan Cipriano is one of the premier saxophonists in NYC His explosive solos and impeccable technique light a fire under any ensemble. His feel and musicality make him a pleasure to work with. He's among the very best."
~ Rob Clores (Enrique Iglesias, Blues Traveler,
Southside Johnny)

Working with the iHorns site was simple and easy. The site is user-friendly and Dan was accommodating and conscientious. He wants his clients to be fully satisfied. The results were great! I was very pleased and I saved money to boot by not having to hire a horn section and going to an outside studio. The horn parts were finished so early in the am I think Dan actually laid the tracks down in his pajamas!
~"Uncle Carl" (Sam Moore, Ben E. King, Sister Sledge,
McFadden & Whitehead, Shirelles)

"Dan plays with more fire, passion and real heart than any musician I've ever had the pleasure to work with."
~ Mike Leslie (Joan Osborne, Rick Derringer)

"Dan Cipriano is a natural, fully developed R&B hornman that always plays with a searing simplicity that carries one to real peaks then cushions you the way down, with an authentic, soulful flavor."
~ Dan Cazio (The Bitter End NYC)

"Dan Cipriano is one of New York's finest reed players. Whether rock or r&b, or blues he is always right at home."
~ Wayne Cobham (Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson,
Wilson Pickett)

"I have worked for many years with Dan in both the studio and on live shows encompassing every style of music. He brings with him an unparalleled passion and musicianship in every performance. A first call musician for any situation."
~ Vito Luizzi (Blood Sweat & Tears, Ian Hunter,
Johnny Winter)

"Dan puts so much heart into every note that I sometimes think he is going to go through the horn himself"
~ Wally Gator Watson (Lionel Hampton Orchestra,
Cab Calloway Orchestra, Wilson Pickett)

"I had a really short deadline for an important remix and the track was crying out for a sax line. With a very rough brief, Dan turned out a really deep and soulful performance which really lifted the track. He turned the sax parts files around in 2 days, and they just dropped into the track without any further effort. Dan is a serious player and very easy to do business with and I hope to do many more projects with him in the future.

 Hi Dan... Just a brief note to tell you how THRILLED I am with the work you did for me on "We Should've Been Friends". The tenor sax solo on the intro is so sweet and soulful it grabs the listeners' attention from the get go and the tight, precise horn section throughout the song is the perfect accentuation to the tune. You really got the feel of my song and I wanted to thank you. I can't wait for you to hear the final mastered mix. nOnce again a big round of applause and sincere thanks for your extraordinary efforts.
~ Michael Stone TRI 102.5 Mornings,
Oldies 102.9 Mid-days

I recently went through to use Dan's talents on a gospel choir CD. It turned out great, and the horns really took it to the next level! Dan was so easy to work with. He responded to all of my communication (I
probably drove him crazy with calls and emails) right away, and he really bent over backward to get the work done quickly. His arrangements were hot and his tracks were totally tight and clean. What an easy way to get pro horn tracks on a project. I will definitely be coming back to
~ Christian Richardson Gideonics / Gideon's Lair Studios Belleview, FL

Dan and are "The Best"! Did I mention that they're the best?
~ M.T. Leon

Dan,you're a genius.You arranged and played exactly what I had envisioned for my song and it sounded great. I can't wait to work with you again.
~ Richard Nelson

When making my CD Dan Cipriano was the first person that came to mind. He is the most exciting horn player I've ever heard. Since we were in different states at the time of the recording I needed to utilize all of his talents as a musician & knowledge as an engineer and do the horn section and sax solo tracks on line. Dan and really came through. Every track lined up perfectly and they did the whole CD within a week. The solos were passionate and soulful. The horn section work was perfect. Dan is an incredible musician with an honest work ethic. He always has a professional and positive attitude. Dan and elevated this project to a higher level. I will definitely use for all my future projects.
~ Jeanne Lozier what's to say? You gotta hear these tracks and everything line up perfectly. Not only was the horn section work super clean but we needed some greasy outside solos for our project and man did they deliver!
~ Gary Oleyar (Producer/Engineer)
