As a member of the Konrad Paszkudzki Trio, Dag maintains a busy itinerary. After recording their debut album in “The Agnes Varis & Karl Leichtman Studio” at Jazz at Lincoln Center in the fall of 2012, they enjoyed an extended engagement as the resident house trio of the Broadway club “54 Below.” Other highlights of the trio’s concertizing include “Jazz Sessions at the Jacob Burns Film Center” (with a tribute to Erroll Garner), a celebrated appearance at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola (which was broadcast on WBGO), and a private performance with trumpeter Wynton Marsalis. Their second album, “No Strings,” was released in the spring of 2014.

Through Juilliard Dag has taught at jazz camps across the States, from West Palm Beach, to San Jose and Seattle. Recently having finished his master’s under teacher Kenny Washington, he remains a firm believer in the phrase “The cannon shoots far because it doesn’t scatter its fire.” With this ardent passion and focus he continues to strive for musical expressions of sophistication and nonchalant grace.
