In 1995, Jay was a founding member of Orchesta Klave Y Kongo, a group that specialized in
performing the traditional form of Cuban music known as Son Montuno. The band became renowned
for their dedication to authenticity, with Jay taking a front and center role playing the “tres”, a type of
guitar from Cuba very different from his usual instrument. It was Jay’s abilities on this instrument that
led him to play with such musical greats as Jane Bunnett, including a 2001 performance on CBC
television for the Gemini Awards show, performing with her at the Ottawa Tulip festival and at Hugh’s
Room in Toronto.
Jay has also recorded two records with piano maestro Hilario Duran, one of which was nominated for a
2003 Juno award, and has performed with him on several occasions as a regular member of his group
“Havana Remembered”.
Latin music has been a very big part of Jay’s life. In 2005 he shared the stage with salsa legend Oscar
D’Leon at Massey Hall, and has performed with members of the legendary Buena Vista Social Club,
including the late Compay Segundo and Jay’s musical idol, Eliades Ochoa. One of Jay’s personal hilights
was when Eliades passed him his guitar to play on stage in 1998.
He has also played with members of Cuban bands Sierra Maestra, Los Van Van, and The Afro-Cuban
All-Stars. In 1999, Jay was an original member of the band Son Ache, who performed at the 2002
Beaches Jazz Festival. Son Ache had the honor of opening for Oscar D’Leon, where Oscar asked Jay to
come on stage and play a song, and after which repeatedly called him back on.
In 2004 Jay was a founding member of the traditional jazz group The Hogtown Syncopators. With
some of the best local jazz musicians in their lineup, including Drew Jureka (violin), Richard
Whiteman (piano), and Terra Hazelton (vocals), this group has recorded an album and holds a weekly
residency at The Rex hotel in Toronto.
In 2009 Jay appeared on the Juno winning (blues album of the year) “Ramblin' Son” with Julian Fauth.

Jay now leads his own band "The Jay Danley Ethiojazz Project", that plays Jay's original compositions in the style of Ethiojazz.
Jay continues to play in several distinguished jazz and latin bands and currently resides in Toronto.
