DARIO NAPOLI

New Album Available!! - ``MY FAVORITE SPOT``

ABOUT DARIO

“What I love about the gypsy jazz style and it’s scene is how honest it is”

Dario Napoli

“Your reputation and respect is earned by how you perform live. You can’t BS that crowd.  There are no shortcuts or special effects.  You either can play or you can’t and it’s raw and sincere.  You could be a lawyer or a janitor but, if you have the skill, you will be respected and accepted.”

“My brother brought me to an Eric Clapton concert. I remember being so affected I could barely sleep after.  I knew I was ready to pay the price to do all I could to learn, on a beat up 40-euro classical guitar, copying by ear all I could.”

My Favorite Spot – New CD Available!!

The last Dario’s album is now available in physical and/or digital copy.

Album Info

Although sinti guitarist Django Reinhardt is the main inspiration behind the album, in “My Favorite Spot”, Dario Napoli looks to include more contemporary influences in his version of gypsy swing, introducing elements of more modern musical styles such as bebop, funk and modern jazz. The result is an unpredictable and exuberant sound, which steals from various musical eras leading you you through a rich and vibrant sonic experience, without ever totally abandoning the gypsy imprint of Django

DIENNE MANOUCHE – Gypsy Bop

Album Info
Dario Napoli (Dienne Manouche) comes out with his first solo CD GYPSY BOP, together with Maurizio Bozzi. The project is inspired both by Gypsy guitar legend Django Reinhardt as well as bebop icon, Charlie Parker. With the record, Dario attempts a fusion of the older musical tradition of the Manouche (Gypsy tribe of which Django Reinhardt was part of) and the style of jazz introduced in the 50s known as bebop. It also includes 2 original compositions.
