European And American Jazz Meets In DLC Project "Into The Unknown"


Sign in to view read count
The title of the latest album by DLC Project, Into the Unknown, could easily have been called “Nothing ventured, nothing gained". The driving concept behind this collection of compositions is one of exploration and the imagining of possibilities - the taking of risks, and the anticipation that goes hand-in-hand with the redefining of parameters. Into the Unknown is a collection of highly original and dynamic compositions that explores many different aspects of group interaction. While reaffirming the group's commitment to melody, Into the Unknown also features a more rhythmic and groove-oriented offering.

The DLC (DeFade / Lo Castro) Project is the next phase of a musical collaboration that features the composing and performance talents of Francesco Lo Castro, Eric DeFade, and Tony DePaolis. The group released a trio effort in early 2013 entitled While We Hope and Dream. The recording was well received by critics and music lovers alike for its intimacy and melody-driven introspection. After completing a highly successful U.S. tour in the spring of 2013 (including appearances at Trumpets Jazz Club & Restaurant, Black Fox Lounge, and James Street Gastropub & Speakeasy), the trio immediately began production on this new project. With the addition of Tom Wendt on drums, Into the Unknown well represents the conceptual evolution of these extremely talented and unique musicians.

The DLC Project Into the Unknown was released on April 1, 2014 under the Flocastro Records label.

The collective music experiences of DLC Project have brought them to a place where the only place to go is 'into the unknown'; consider venturing there and enjoy the trip as much as they have.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
