DIA Y NOCHE:
This collection was captured in two concerts - one by day, one by night. The day show from the Strawberry Festival (Yosemite, CA) in Spring 2004 finds the group pushed to new heights by a wonderful, raucous audience. The night show from the Countrywide Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza in August finds the group in a more subdued and expansive setting, breathing life and new dimension into their songs. This particular concert features a 9 piece band augmented by special guests - Lisa Lynne (harp), Mars Lasar (synthesizers), Robbey Longley (guitar), and Roger Espinoza (guitar).
The veteran Los Angeles-based songwriter/musicians collectively known as INCENDIO knew the kind of inspired passion and energy they wanted to convey when they named their band in 1999. The "Latin guitar world fusion" created by guitarists JIM STUBBLEFIELD, JEAN-PIERRE DURAND, and LIZA CARBE' has received international acclaim, and their reputation as a live act has spread. The band creates a polyrhythmic swirl of multiple Latin American music forms (boleros, cumbias, salsa, tango, mambo and the indigenous Peruvian valses criollos) and combines them with Indian, Arabic and Celtic flavors. Then they add just the right touch of jazz improvisation and dynamics, and the sizzling result is what one Incendio fan calls "edge of your seat music."

REVIEWS OF "DIA Y NOCHE":
Smother.net "Editor's Pick"
"Recorded live at two separate concerts, one during daytime and the other at night, “Dia y Noche” is an exploration of the fusion of Latin rock with Latin jazz and various South American styles like bossa nova, salsa, and others. The day show was recorded at the Strawberry Festival in early 2004 while the night show was from the Countrywide Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza later that year. Both shows expose Incendio incendiary instrumentation and crafty arrangements."

"With a sensational mixture of music from all around the globe, Incendio, which means fire in Italian and Spanish, lives up to its name. The latest installment from the band, Dia y Noche, creates the experience of a live performance wherever you listen to the album. The sultry Spanish guitar resonates through every track and is accompanied by Celtic, Middle Eastern, Jazz, and many other styles to produce incredible melodies. The talent of the musicians is evident on each track. In each song, you can hear the love and passion Incendio has for music. Dia y Noche is more than just an album, it is a showcase of excellent talent."
