The term crossover artist can mean many things. In the case of argentine pianist and composer Dario Boente, it means a musician who is equally at home performing romantic tango and jazz compositions on a grand piano, as he is programming world-beat electronica.
Dario's musical personality energetically bridges the Jazz- club and the Dance-club, and is a direct outgrowth of his own life. Having been brought up in Argentina and Spain, immersed in the culture of tango and Brazilian music, he pursued his formal studies at the Guildhall School of Music (London), Berklee School of Music (Boston) , the New School Jazz and Contemporary Music Program (New York) and his social life in the dance/electronica scene of New York, Madrid, London and Ibiza ....
The international musical appeal of the Dario Boente Group is well documented by the six songs on this CD and it serves as a respectable introduction to audiences seeking to broaden their sensitivity of Latin jazz. ~ Paula Edelstein, All Music Guide
This tastefully crafted Solo Piano Volume of intimate piano music, is a singular blend of authority and memorably poetic license.Dario's performance are full of lyricism, rich harmonies, impeccable technique, rhythm and Jazz vocabulary, all wrap up with exquisite romanticism. This album is a must for all music lovers.
