Rising Trumpet Star and Seasoned Pianist form Dynamic Duo live at Nighttown!

Dominick Farinacci recently released his Mack Avenue Records debut, «Short Stories» — a compelling suite of music with a repertoire that spans genres and generations united by the trumpeter/composer's soulful conception. Bringing together songs from Tom Waits, Horace Silver, Dianne Reeves and the Gipsy Kings as well as original compositions, Farinacci has managed to create his own musical universe, aided by musicians of the highest caliber. All of the songs have a narrative that any listener can relate to.

Farinacci had already achieved enough stature by his mid-teens that Wynton Marsalis offered to help him set his sights on coming to New York, and by 2001, Farinacci was one of only four trumpeters in the world to be selected as the inaugural students in The Juilliard School's first jazz curriculum.

Life itself has many different sorts of mentorship built into it. A life in the arts can't exist without these kinds of relationships, and Short Stories is the fruit of the coming together of two kindred spirits, Farinacci and LiPuma, from the same home town (Cleveland, Ohio), separated by just under half a century in age. What unites them is a clear, moern aesthetic vision that combines the highest musical standards with a desire to be agents of change.

Amazingly, Farinacci found time during his Middle East years to also play an integral role in the conception and build out of Cuyahoga Community College's Tommy LiPuma Center for Creative Arts.

Nighttown favorite Joe Hunter has released two popular CD's in recent years. Hunter is the pianist of choice in the Northeast Ohio area. He can be heard frequently in the Fat Tuesday Big Band, Swing City, and backing big name artists. He has backed many, including the legendary Tito Puente, and saxophonist David Sanborn, At Nighttown Hunter has backed some several top guns including clarenetist Ken Peplowski, and saxophonists David «Fathead» Newman, and Scott Hamilton. Joe Hunter is also on the faculty at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C), one of the top jazz programs in the country.
