Dan Liparini Jazz Quartet
August 20, 2019 • 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Dan Liparini is a guitarist, composer, and arranger based in Hartford, CT. As a student at the Hartt School of Music he had the opportunity to study with Steve Davis, Nat Reeves, Rene McLean, Chris Casey, Rich Goldstein and other great musicians. Since graduating in 2013, he has stayed busy as a sideman in a number of bands, playing everything from Latin-Jazz to R&B and Folk. As a leader and a sideman he has performed at venues across the Northeast including the Sidedoor Jazz Club, Infinity Music Hall, Bowery Electric, Pianos, Nectars and many others. His music is based in the tradition of the guitar trio but also draws influence from blues, rock and electronic music; a crossroads where the music of Thelonious Monk and Jim Hall meets the music of The Beatles and Radiohead. The music is tied together through its simplicity, and the trio uses each song as a template to explore different sounds and textures. Dan regularly performs around Connecticut and New York as a sideman and a bandleader.
