Daniel Lucca Parenti

D-Lucca

Piccolo Bass? Isn’t that an oxymoron? Not when you’re talking about D-Lucca, who is among a mere handful of people who can pull it off. As with Stanley Clarke and the late Wayman Tisdale, D-Lucca can count himself as one of the few artists able to bring the piccolo bass into a well-warranted limelight. Daniel Lucca Parenti,shortened to D-Lucca, is a San Francisco Bay Area native who has performed with many jazz legends, including Rosemary Clooney, Michael Brecker, and Lionel Hampton. Bass Player Magazine said of D-Lucca, “Aptly handling a variety of basses, including melody-manning piccolo, [D-Lucca’s] material is alternately laid-back and fused-out modern jazz.” Though D-Lucca may not follow the jazz-fusion lead of Clarke or the smooth jazz of recent sensation Tisdale, he has definitely found his niche within the newest wave of modern jazz. “D-Lucca has fused jazz and rock so beautifully that you don’t know when one ends and the other begins,” wrote Susan Frances from JazzReview.com.

East Bay Express D-Lucca, Pressing Forward. Shades of Joe Satriani and Eric Johnson, albeit less showy, surface on this instrumental New Age jazz album. Solos also go to sax and bass, but the real star is Walnut Creek resident D-Lucca's guitar. His tone is clear and bright, though not devoid of bottom end, and his playing confident and workmanlike. Unlike many skilled guitarists, he serves the song before his vanity. (D-Lucca Entertainment) By Nate Seltenrich
