Arthur Vint and Associates
Arthur Vint & Associates pays tribute to Ennio Morricone’s iconic “Spaghetti Western” themes, honoring the great Italian Maestro’s 90th birthday. Morricone’s remarkable career has spanned seven decades; he has composed over 500 scores for cinema and television and is inarguably one of the greatest film composers of all time.
Bronx-based drummer Arthur Vint leads the jazz combo, an 8-piece band featuring an eclectic mix of harmonica, violin and bass clarinet, accompanied by the more traditional jazz instruments of saxophone, guitar, piano and bass, all led from behind the drums by Vint. Together the band explores Morricone’s themes by opening them up and making them vehicles for improvisation in their disassembled-and-reassembled country-jazz style.
Arthur Vint moved to the New York area from his hometown of Tucson, AZ, in 2007 to pursue a career in music and is now as busy as any freelance musician could hope to be, performing over 250 gigs a year with bands such as Postmodern Jukebox, Vince Giordano & The Nighthawks, Zephaniah OHora, GaDaDu, The Synesthetics, Arthur Vint & Associates and a good deal more. He lives in Riverdale with his family and is a member and frequent visitor of Wave Hill!
