Dan Pinto is a keyboardist/composer that has chosen an entrepreneurial
approach to music, possessing an extended arsenal of talent even beyond what can
be seen or heard.
It is this additional creative element that sets him apart
from other musical artists and has enabled him to forge a career as a truly
independent musician. His choices as such allow him the freedom to do what he
feels, unbridled by any outside influence.
Having had respectable experience in live performance and studio recording as
both a keyboardist and drummer-percussionist, Dan Pinto is also an incredibly
versatile composer that specializes in genres of Jazz-Rock Fusion and Film Score
& Soundtrack music.
Within those genres, you will hear the application of well
structured orchestral sound coupled with a progressive fusion style that at
times is reminiscent of Keith Emerson and Chick Corea. His music can be both
extremely relaxing and devastatingly powerful and complex.
If you've heard Dan's music or have ever seen him perform, you
would instantly realize just how talented he is with his diversified composing
style and multi-instrumental capabilities. What you may not know is that he also
has a great deal of experience in an expanded role as a producer and recording
engineer. Upon applying all that he is capable of, it becomes very obvious that
Dan Pinto is a musical force to be recognized.
Dan Pinto's foundation was set in stone as a drummer. Even though Dan might be
more recognizable as a keyboardist and composer, one thing he enjoys when
performing live with various bands is working out drum duets with whatever
drummer is covering the lead role for that position.
This in the past has always produced an anticipated feature for
the audience with whatever band Dan has played with. One of the earliest
performances of this type dates back to 1981 when he and his band Juice opened
for Joan Jett & the Blackhearts for a live show broadcast on WDHA in New Jersey.
Having composed music for nationally syndicated television, industrial video and
independent film, Dan Pinto has already solidified his place among such writers.
But he continues to release great solo works as well.
Dan's "Anomalies" album from 2008 shows the listener that he is
in full form with compositions that cover both Jazz-Rock Fusion and Contemporary
Jazz. But this album also demonstrates Film Score & Soundtrack works with full
orchestral arrangements. This release appeals to many different listeners, yet
has a consistent thread that retains it's presence as a whole.
