The term “crossover artist” can mean many things. In the case of Argentine pianist and composer Dario Boente, it’s shorthand for a musician as effective in playing romantic jazz tunes on a grand piano as he is in programming world–beat electronica. Since moving to New York in 1999, Dario has released seven albums and compilations as a leader alongside such top–shelf players as Antonio Sánchez, Miguel Zenón, and Ronny Jordan; and he’s performed in more than 20 countries around the world. Tonight, our ongoing “New Dimensions In Latin Jazz” series presents Dario Boente at the helm of Proyecto Sur – an acoustic group whose repertoire encompasses jazz standards, Argentine classics, and Boente’s sparkling original compositions. “Dario's performances are full of lyricism, rich harmonies, impeccable technique, rhythm and jazz vocabulary, all wrapped up with exquisite romanticism.” (The Village Voice)
