Anomalies' composer and creator is Dan Pinto. Dan is a multi-talented Pianist/Percussionist virtuoso that has applied much of his technical prowess to the music on this new CD. It's taken Dan 13 years to finally allow himself the time, breaking away from film music in order to feature his skills at writing Jazz-Rock Fusion again. He brings eliments of his film music experience into the Jazz-Rock Fusion format in very unique ways combining it with well arranged orchestration. But even beyond all this, he's invited a few friends along to further enhance his work...

     Featured on Tracks 4 and 8, is electric guitarist, Ivan Romero. Ivan's personal guitar tastes in style lean towards heavy Tech-Rock which is precisely why he fit so well into the musical scheme of Anomalies. Ivan's inspiration to play guitar developed during the 1980s. As a result he went straight to learning technique, licks and songwriting styles of the infamous genre of guitarists known as "Shredders." He combines that with keen awareness of touch and feel much like a blues player but yet, the forward aggressiveness of a rock guitarist. Dynamics, melody, song and structure are what Ivan feels defines the music that he writes and plays. "Ivan takes great pride in knowing exactly what he's playing. He has a terrific ear for hearing subtleties that many other player's cannot. That together with his technical ability to play make him a devastatingly great guitar player and one that I am very proud to have perform on my music." Having studied with "Favored Nations" guitarist, Rob Balducci, and a former member of Christian Rock Band "Just Passing Thru," Ivan Romero can now be seen on "You Tube" during a studio session recorded recently. He has only just begun to define his place amoung his peers in music. Feel free to look him up as this is one guitarist that you will undoubtedly be hearing much more from in the future.

Enabling the music on this CD to show contrast, Dan decided to include a selection highlighting vocals. Singer/Songwriter,
"Rhonda Schuster" accepted Dan's invitation to come up with a brilliant performance for Track 6. "Ive performed and recorded with many female vocalists in the past but none Ive ever worked with compare to the versatility that Rhonda shows. I was very pleased with the end result of our working together on my Anomalies release. She is a true professional." Rhonda's background as a singer/songwriter not limited to Rock, Folk, R&B and Blues has earned her J-P Folks award's "Best Americana CD of the year" in 2001, 2 nominatons for "Best R & B songs of the year" in 2002, Winner of the "Towne Crier" Singer/Songwriter competition in 2003 and nominated in 2 categories, "Best Vocalist" & "Best Production" at the 2005 New Mexico Independant Music Awards. Rhonda's single, "We Might Never Feel This Way Again" was recorded by "Phoebe Snow" on her "Something Real" LP. The "Rhonda Schuster Band" can be heard performing live on a regular basis in the East Coast tri-state area.

     To incorporate yet another dimension into Anomalies, Dan Pinto wanted to preserve a natural eliment of Jazz for this release and invited the multi-talented John Asti to perform on two selections. The contrast between the two pieces shows just how talented John can be, switching between Soprano Sax, Flute and Clarinet for what was a modern Jazz feel on Track 3 to a truly unique eliment using Alto Saxophone in a heavy Jazz-Rock and Blues fusion piece on Track 8.
     Born in Montclair, N.J., acquiring a BM in music education, John Asti's musical background has given him great opportunity to play with some of the best names in Jazz! He's performed live in concert with Manny Album, Phil Woods, Arnie Lawrence, Frank Foster, Jim Pugh, Lou Soloff, Hank Jones, Bill Watrous, Bob Mintzer, Michael Brecker, Barry Harris, Charles McPherson, Pete Christlieb and Marvin Stamn.  "I was extremely honored to have John perform on my material. He's played with some of the best in the business and for good reason. I am very greatful for him having offered his knowledge and experience in Jazz which added so much more to the Anomalies project."
    John Asti is always performing. His touring experience in the past has taken him on the road with "The Glenn Miller Orchestra," "The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra," Broadway shows "CATS" & "Jesus Christ Superstar," "The Colorado Symphony," "Steve Allen," "Steve & Edie Gormet," "Diane Carroll," & "Vic Damone," "Mel Torme" & "Rosemary Clooney" and "Nancy Wilson" & "Sarah Vaughn." John has performed Bernstein's "Symphonic Dances" and "On The Water Front." And he's been in National tours of "Damn Yankees" with "Jerry Louis," "Hello Dolly" with "Carol Channing" and "Mame" with "Juliet Prowse."
