Tri-C Students Document Farinacci-LiPuma Recording Project (video)
May 07, 2015
Trumpet player Dominick Farinacci and five-time Grammy winner and producer Tommy LiPuma gathered in February with a band of veteran session musicians in the Cuyahoga Community College Gill and Tommy LiPuma Center for Creative Arts to play and lay tracks for a new album, as yet unnamed.
Tri-C film students and students who work in the College's student production office made a documentary of the process. Scroll down to watch it.
The album was a first such collaboration for Farinacci and LiPuma. Long before Farinacci became Global Ambassador to Jazz at Lincoln Center, or a graduate of the esteemed Juilliard School, he was a Solon High School student and a jazz-studies student at Cuyahoga Community College.
