Daniel Asbury Mixon from Harlem, New York City is an American jazz Pianist.
Currently you can hear him at the newly revised and highly sought upon Jazz Supper Club Minton’s in Harlem.
A prolific piano virtuoso who has performed in the U. S. and Internationally, Daniel Asbury Mixon was born on August 19, 1949 in Harlem and raised in Brooklyn, New York. Growing up in a musical household he was influenced by his mother and grandparents beginning his early artistic expression at the age of 3. He studied and performed as a tap dancer at the Ruth Williams Dance Studio and even then was known as “The Show Stopper.” Danny attended the High School of Performing Arts with dance as his major.
During an afternoon outing at the Apollo Theatre with his grandfather Danny was inspired by the jazz musicians he heard. It was then that he decided that he would like to be a pianist and he never once looked back.
In May of 2004 Danny was one of the first musicians to be honored by the National Jazz Museum in Harlem in a series entitled “Harlem Speaks,” which resulted in an invitation to the White House for Black Music Month on June 22nd.
Danny’s greatest joy is performing, composing, and arranging for his own group “The Danny Mixon Trio or Quartet,” Danny is currently the Musical Director at Minton’s.
This kind of talent doesn’t grow on trees. Danny Mixon and all of the jazz musicians at Minton’s are what makes Harlem so great. If you have not yet visited Minton’s Supper Club in Harlem, and you are a lover of good food and REAL JAZZ, we highly recommend it.

A return to elegance in the historic village of Harlem. The day has come for Minton’s to open officially to the public Monday, October 21st. The Cecil next door and jointly owned just opened last month with a bang and hasn’t stopped since. Already considered in a league of it’s own in this area. See our previous write up on The Cecil Restaurant in Harlem (Review).
We look forward to celebrating the reopening of Minton’s with such a past history of Harlem’s jazz greats when it was once called Minton’s Playhouse. This venue will require that men wear jackets. The attire (dress code) is formal and it will be nice to see women and men fill the room with a diversity of styles while enjoying live jazz music. A very timely decision to open (reopen) this historic jazz club with Harlem on the pulse now more than ever in the New York scene.
Looking forward to experiencing Minton’s next week. Dress to impress and come out to enjoy good jazz and what looks like to be great food. Take a peek at the menu below.
Here are a couple photos of entrees you can expect from the menu. Looking forward to trying the Rib-Eye steak. Minton’s MENU.
