“Dominick's tone shines...he is reminiscent of Clifford Brown and Miles Davis." --Russ Titelman

February 20, 2009 (New York, NY) -- Fresh off two sold out concerts at Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola (Jazz @ Lincoln Center), young trumpeter Dominick Farinacci is set to release his highly anticipated debut U.S. album, Lovers, Tales & Dances on February 24th, 2009. Produced by the legendary Russ Titelman (Eric Clapton, James Taylor, etc), Lovers, Tales & Dances features some of the greatest players in jazz, including Kenny Barron, James Genus, Marc Johnson, Lewis Nash, Jamey Haddad, Joe Lovano, and Joe Locke, with guest vocalist Hilary Kole, and string arrangements by Rich Derosa. From the breadth of its repertoire and variety of its voices, to the warmth and rich lyricism of the 25-year-old Juilliard School graduate’s sound, Lovers, Tales & Dances is an album for everyone to savor. States Jack Kleinsinger (Highlights in Jazz): “This is, quite frankly, the most stunning debut I have ever encountered”

At 15, Dominick was “discovered” by Wynton Marsalis in his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, and was subsequently invited to appear as a featured soloist with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra PBS’s “Live from Lincoln Center.” While studying with Warren Vache and Wynton Marsalis at the Juilliard School, Dominick was also featured at Lincoln Center on a tribute concert to Freddie Hubbard and Lee Morgan, “Night of the Cookers.” Over the years he has performed and/or recorded with many high-profile jazz artists such as Joe Lovano, Wynton Marsalis, Ira Sullivan, Mulgrew Miller, Carl Allen, Jason Miles, and Joe La Barbera. Awards include two Gold Disc awards (Record of the Month) from Swing Journal Magazine in Japan for his recordings “Say It” and “Besame Mucho”, and the 2003 International New Star Award in Japan, an honor previously awarded to Diana Krall.

Dominick’s recordings have placed #1 on the Swing Journal Jazz Charts, and he was the winner of the ITG Carmine Caruso International Jazz Trumpet Competition in 2003.

When asked about the inspiration behind the record Dominick expressed, “This is some of the music that has become closest to my heart over the years: songs written by composers from many parts of the world; including the USA, Argentina, Brazil, Italy, France, and Japan. All of these songs have a beautiful lyrical quality about them, which I feel reflects some of my most important influences: Clifford Brown, Harry James, Freddie Hubbard, Nina Simone, Carmen McRae, Frank Sinatra, and others.” Chuck Mitchell, VP of Jazz/Adult Music for E1 Music adds, “It has been many years since I’ve heard a jazz musician under 30 as genuinely gifted and mature as Dominick Farinacci. We are thrilled to have assembled a supporting cast of some of the greatest musicians in jazz, guided by a producer who’s truly one of the great talents in modern recorded music.”
