Recently featured on NPR's Jazz
Rising Stars, Dominick Farinacci presents an eclectic repertoire spanning global genres
and generations of musical masters. He performs music from films,
original songs, and the work of some of the greatest songwriters around the world.
The New York Times recognizes Dominick as “having the prepossessing charm and
lyrical instinct of a jazz pop-star,” and Quincy Jones says of Dominick's
musical depth, "This kid is 360 degrees!" He is the recipient
of the International New Star Award (along with Diana Krall and Christian
McBride) and the Disney New Star Award, and was first discovered by Wynton
Marsalis when he was just 17. After appearing on PBS with Marsalis,
Dominick attended The Juilliard School in NYC. In addition to touring internationally
with his band, he created an innovative music outreach program for the Tommy
Lipuma Center for Creative Arts in his native town of Cleveland, reaching
over 3,000 kids in its inaugural year.
