Artist Recording Collective artist, Dan Arcamone is a guitarist, composer, and educator hailing from Norwalk, CT. Arcamone’s powerful yet elegant style has been winning over audiences and critics alike. Intricately constructed single-note phrases and rich chordal landscapes mark his highly individualized style. Dan has performed and/or recorded alongside Steve Pruitt, Tony Grey, Panagiotis Andreou, Kenny Grohowski, Sean Nowell, Mark Small, Brad Mason, Jen Allen, Thierry Arpino, Marko Djordjevic, Rich Zurkowski, Matt Dwonszyk, Nathan Peck, Janek Gwizdala, Martin Bejerano, Thomson Kneeland, Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez, and Damon Grant, among others. Arcamone’s musical style is hard to pin down with a single term, needless to say it is the result of years of focused study and focused performances. These experiences have culminated in a personalized approach to the guitar that challenges the listener to think outside of their common expectations. As a leader, Dan Arcamone has released several recordings to date: Standards, Vol. 1 (2021), Psalm (2019), X (2018), Evolve (2017), In Colors (2016), In Motion (2010), and Trioisms (2008). In addition to his recordings, Arcamone has also released two exercise books (Melodic Continuity and Counterpoint Exercises on Familiar Chord Progressions) and a collection of his 60+ compositions (Dan Arcamone Songbook).
A musician in the New York City area for over 30 years, Ben Monder has performed with a wide variety of artists, including Jack McDuff, Marc Johnson, Lee Konitz, Billy Childs, Andrew Cyrille, George Garzone, Paul Motian, Maria Schneider, Louis Cole, Marshall Crenshaw and Jandek. He also contributed guitar parts to the last David Bowie album, “Blackstar”. Ben conducts clinics and workshops around the world, and has served on the faculties of the New England Conservatory and the New School. He was the recipient of a Doris Duke Impact Award in 2014, and a Shifting Foundation grant in 2013. Ben continues to perform original music internationally in solo and trio settings, and in a long standing duo project with vocalist Theo Bleckmann. He has appeared on over 200 CDs as a sideman, and has released 8 as a leader: Live at the 55 Bar (Sunnyside, 2021), Day After Day (Sunnyside, 2019) Amorphae (ECM, 2015), Hydra (Sunnyside, 2013), Oceana (Sunnyside, 2005), Excavation (Arabesque, 2000), Dust (Arabesque, 1997), and Flux (Songlines,1995).
