Dominick Farinacci

28-year-old NYC-based jazz trumpeter Dominick Farinacci, recipient of the International New Star Award (along with Diana Krall & Christian McBride), the Disney New Star Award, and first place honors in the Carmine Caruso International Trumpet Competition, is touring in support of his 2nd U.S. release, Dawn of Goodbye (Eone Music), following 7 critically acclaimed CD’s as a leader in Japan.

Quincy Jones said “this kid is 360 degrees” after Dominick performed for him in Bel Air, and upon releasing his first U.S. CD (Lovers, Tales & Dances) he was invited to perform at the 02 in London opening for British stars Jamie Cullum and Jeff Beck. In response to selections recorded with strings on his last release, he appeared at Severance Hall with the Cleveland Orchestra for their 2010 Gala. When he was just 17, Wynton Marsalis asked Dominick to perform with him on a PBS Special at Lincoln Center, and shortly after, he was selected as one of 18 musicians worldwide to be part of the inaugural class of the Jazz Studies Program at The Juilliard School.
