Dan Arcamone

Artist Recording Collective artist, Dan Arcamone is a guitarist, composer, and educator hailing from Norwalk, CT. As a composer and performer, Arcamone’s powerful yet elegant style has been winning over audiences and critics alike. A diverse player, Arcamone is equally at home creating beautiful, arcing melodies on a ballad as he is taking the reins on a burning, rock-fused solo, qualities that have caused him to make waves as both a leader and sideman. Dan has performed and/or recorded alongside Sean Nowell, Mark Small, Brad Mason, Jen Allen, Thierry Arpino, Marko Djordjevic, Henry Lugo, Rich Zurkowski, Nathan Peck, Janek Gwizdala, Justin Vasquez, Martin Bejerano, Thomson Kneeland, Kenny Grohowski, Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez, Joe Abba, Damian Curtis, Zaccai Curtis, and Damon Grant, among other great musicians. Arcamone's musical style is hard to pin down with a single term, needless to say it the result of years of focused study and focused performances. These experiences have culminated in a personalized approach to the guitar that challenges the listener to think outside of their common expectations.

Jazz Artistry Now Evolve reviewed by Scott Yanow

– In his career, Dan Arcamone has performed with many artists who are based in New England. He is a guitarist whose music can be said to fall into the fusion area since his sound can be rockish while he takes adventurous jazz improvisations. But the word “fusion,” which conjures up John McLaughlin and Al DiMeola, is simplifying matters a bit since he does not sound like either one.

Mr. Arcamone, whose previous releases as a leader were Trioisms (2008), In Motion (2010) and In Colors (2012), is joined on Evolve by tenor-saxophonist Sean Nowell, bassist Henry Lugo and drummer Kenny Grohowski
