"This kid is 360 degrees!" - Quincy Jones
"One of the most gorgeous, passionate and haunting recordings to cross my desk in some time." - Gary Walker, WBGO
One of the cool things that I like about the blog and the new world that it has opened up to me is the discovery of new artists and music! I received information yesterday about a trumpeter named Dominick Farinacci's new album and upcoming CD release party in New York City.
I scanned through the info as I was not familiar with Mr. Farinacci. But, after doing some preliminary research, I found out that he is well regarded by some in the jazz community's upper echelon. Plus, I found 3 videos of a performance at NYC's Smalls Jazz Club where he was a member of the Aaron Diehl Quartet. The videos gave me an idea of his playing style and technical ability. Wynton Marsalis and saxman Victor Goines were special guests.
