      It's a good one! After 13 years , Dan has come back to his roots and released a Jazz-Rock Fusion mix of some of the most eclectic music that you'll ever hear. And with this new release, he brings a few very versatile and talented players to accompany him on several tracks. His guests include "Ivan Romero," an incredibly versatile and very talented guitarist, "Rhonda Schuster," a multi-award winning singer/songwriter and "John Asti," a seasoned pro veteran reeds player. Details about his musical guests can be found on the Anomalies Guest Page .

     The new CD features TEN tracks, three of which were derived from works that Dan Pinto wrote many years ago but never officially released. The other six tracks are brand spankin new! The level of music and talent on this new CD is only matched by it's concept theme and package design for which many months of work were invested.

      The cover, title, art design, illustrations and concept all center around the general theme of various Anomalies. Anomalies are best defined as being a deviation from the common type or rule. Someone or something abnormal, unusual or irregular. And as you will hear and see, there is nothing regular about any part of this new CD.

      September, 2011... Eclectic Sound & Dan Pinto would like to wish you all a "Happy Halloween!" In celebration, we are posting for the first time, a FULL MP3 recording of Dan's "The Haunting" from his "Ivory Towers" CD. This is also part of our promotion for Dan's re-release for this album coming in the near future. But those of you who remember, this was the piece that earned him a nomination for "Best Instrumental Song Of The Year" in the 2006 "Just Plain Folks Music Awards." A very cool and sort of eerie piece, you can check it out from start to finish in it's entirety beginning September 18, 2011 at the following link..."Ivory Towers - The Haunting." This full length version will run through October 31st! If you like what you hear then please pick up a copy of Dan's "Ivory Towers" CD to hear this and several other great New Age works by Dan Pinto!

      September, 2010... For those of you who are asking "When is Dan's new piano CD release going to be here," we thought we'd get you an update. Basically, Dan has been kind of busy! He's got about two thirds of the music complete, and the album cover and title designs are finished, but Dan has been side tracked with other work and wishes not to rush something out just for the sake of releasing material that is less that his best effort. Don't worry though, it's definitely coming! We'll let you know. ;)

      July, 2010... Eclectic Sound will be re-releasing Dan Pinto's "Ivory Towers" album. The new release will be a re-mastered work and include new music arrangements, much improved quality and a new album cover design, which by the way is being promoted now. Dan felt the music from this album captured a nice taste of work from his New Age category of music. Having won a nomination for "Best Instrumental Music Of The Year" in 2006, critics agree. The re-release is expected sometime next year so we'll keep you posted.

      February, 2010... Dan Pinto is Randy Allar's guest for some conversation about his music and latest CD release.

PAST NEWS AND EVENTS

      Dan Pinto received accolades in 2006 for "Best Instrumental Song Of The Year" with his nomination in the
JPF Music Awards. His title "The Haunting" from his "Ivory Towers" album was chosen through a process that selected less than one half of one percent during a judging term that took 13 months! In all, over 300,000 entries were reviewed from all around the World.

      Dan stays active working closely with independant film-makers scoring music for movie projects whenever possible. He also takes part from time to time in educating younger artists that seek to gain knowledge in that area. In recent past he worked with long time famed jazz musician/songwriter "Horace Ott", composer of "Don't let me be misunderstood," taking part in a presentation for the New Jersey Movie Makers Network on scoring music for movies at the MEMFEST FILM FESTIVAL in New Jersey.

       Exciting things are planned in the near future for the website. New video editing equipment is expected at Pinto Studios in the near future. A series of webpages showcasing Dan's music with video will become available which will include both live and recorded works as well as works for TV & film. Dan will be eventually working on digitally re-editing and mastering his film project "Die For A Life." Plans to showcase the film itself are in the works, however not for quite some time. Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
 


 

Dan Pinto's previous music CD release was "Visions."
This CD shows well of his music composition in contrast with something here for everyone.


 

    Track 1: "Surreal Symphony"
is a work of something you would hear from a motion picture. Full orchestral arrangements make this piece the most powerful music on the CD.

    Track 2: "Visions" has a melody that tends to stick in one's memory. Ballad oriented, this was chosen as the title track because of it being the one piece of music that defines the CD as stiring the imagination.

    Track 3: "Counterclockwise" has an opening that's a bit deceiving. Beginning with a slow woodwinded orchestral sound and ultimately turning into a high energy piece run by syncopated rhythms and stylish synthesizer.

    Track 4: "For My Love" was written originally for piano and adds soft strings and woodwinds for what is one of the most beautiful melodies Dan has ever written inspired by someone very close to his heart.

    Track 5: "Neverending Goodbye" is a re-edited version of the song that was used as the closing number for the film "Die For A Life." It's tendencies are towards ballad music leaving the door open for lyrics.

    Track 6: "Seconds" is a piece you might expect to hear on a TV series program. Possibly a soapy type of drama. It is the one unique piece to the selection of music on this CD.

    Track 7: "Serenity" has a melancholy melody but it's chorus has a hopeful positive feeling. A song showing light and dark contrasts.

    Track 8: "Tajmahal" is a composition that was originally written back in the late 1980's but has set a benchmark for Dan's style of writing that he has quite often applied to his music ever since. This was a special selection for Dan that he felt deserved new recognition.
