Self taught guitarist, Pino Daniele is a multi-platinum recording artist who made his first album, "Terra Mia" at the age of 22. From the beginning of his career, it was evident that his passion lay in Rock and Blues, and greatly influenced by his own Neopolitan background, his music has been a successful fusion of tradition and modernity. Defined by Daniele as "Taramblu", the mixing of Tarantella, Blues, and Rumba, his music has captured worldwide attention and praise and has been noted by some as the rebirth of Neopolitan song.
During the course of his 30+ year career, he has opened for Bob Marley and collaborated with such musical giants as Wayne Shorter, Pat Metheny, Chick Corea and Richie Havens. He has shown a profound understanding and respect of world cultures, histories and traditions expressing them through his music. Choosing to collaborate with various artists promoting such topics as ecological awareness and voices of peace, it is only natural that as Pino Daniele makes his NY debut it would be on the stage which introduced and made famous Blues and Pop.
On March 27, 2009 he released his latest album " Electric Jam" which kicked off it's tour in Europe in April. He will be in New York for one night only, performing well known classics and songs from this newest album on October 1st at the legendary Apollo Theater.
After 75 years, the Apollo Theater continues to attract artists from all over the world. It is, for New Yorkers and African Americans throughout the US, a symbol of pride and heritage.
Located at 253 West 125th Street the Apollo's history is as rich as the legends it has housed and created. It is the stage where Ella Fitzgerald made her singing debut at the age of 17 and where Jimmy Hendrix won a first place amateur prize in 1964. It has launched the careers of Billie Holiday, James Brown, Diana Ross & the Supremes, Gladys Night & the Pips, The Jackson 5, Patti LaBelle, Marvin Gaye, Luther Vandross, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, and the Isley Brothers to name a few.
