Dan Olivo - Day By Day - Ava Maria Records

Singer and actor Dan Olivo is a regular on the Southern California jazz scene. For his debut album, Day By Day, Olivo wanted to blend his sophisticated, elegant sound with the feel of a big band recording but performed by a smaller combo. Olivo re-connected with his high school friend, guitarist IAN ROBBINS who is also the writer, producer and musical director for DAY BY DAYTo achieve the big band sound Olivo wanted, Robbins brought on board some of the top players in the Los Angeles area, including bass player LYMAN MEDEIROS, Pianist and Hammond B3 organ player JOE BAGG, Drummer and percussionist KEVIN WINARD, Reedman KYLE O’DONNELL, Trombonist GARRETT SMITH, Trumpeter JAMELLE ADISA and Vocalist RENEE MYARA CIBELLI. Olivo knows how to swing and delivers the lyrics with clear enunciation and a lot of feeling. His training in stagecraft allows him to tell the story of a song directly and honestly, much like the crooners he so admires.
