Dan Pinto Dan Pinto

____Dan Pinto is a seasoned composer in instrumental music. As a multi-instrumentalist with most varieties of keyboards, drums and percussion, his writing styles include Jazz-rock Fusion, New Age and Orchestral Rock. He has several CDs and continues to release one or two a year on average. Dan's music has been repeatedly applied to film and television as he continues to work with independent film producers on soundtrack material. His true passion is the piano which can be heard along with orchestral accompaniment throughout many of his compositions. He is an avid listener of classical music, a style of which he incorporates into his music as well.

____Dan Pinto began his musical career as a drummer in 1974, an instrument that he still holds onto firmly as he writes and performs the drums and percussion on all the music that he releases. Live experience on his instruments spans practically his entire career although he is considered more of a studio musician. Live performances as the keyboardist/percussionist for the band “Juice” include an unlikely opening for the rock artist “Joan Jett” back in 1980. Solo performances include that on piano as well as work with MIDI sequencing of electronic keyboards and percussion. Studio recordings find him on several CDs other than his own including keyboards for Doug Wain and drums for James Mac with Dave LaRue on Bass. Dan played with many different local bands on the East coast throughout the 1980s and early 90s before moving on exclusively to a solo career in writing.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
