When Quincy Jones first saw Dominick Farinacci perform, he famously said: "This kid is 360 degrees!" The 30-year old trumpeter has been further endorsed by Wynton Marsalis and has released nine records to date. Every aspect of his talent has received its due praise—from his succinct, melodic phrasing, to his highly expressive tone and strong chops. Though best known for (and most interested in) beautiful, patient melodies at times reminiscent of late '50s - early '60s Miles Davis, Farinacci still knows how to swing fast, rip through the blues, or branch out with aspects of Latin percussion. His band, comprised of Dizzy’s regulars Zaccai Curtis, Ryan Scott, Yasushi Nakamura, and Keita Ogawa, has proven its ability to handle such material with elegance and subtlety.
