Info zu Blue Desires (Remastered Collection)
Tino Izzo (a.k.a. One) bridges the gap between compelling fusion and inviting atmosphere with a gripping session of guitar instrumentals seared with powerful melodies. The tone Izzo gets out of a guitar will make you weep… flying off with fleet-fingered acoustic runs one moment, and laconic, Knopfleresque melodies the next.
"Top ten album of the year" (Echoes)
"The tone this boy gets out of a guitar will make you weep. This all-instrumental album showcases extraordinary guitar work and compositions... Izzo holds his own with greats including Metheny and Bird" (Napra Review)
Tino's love affair with music began at ten years old with his father, himself a guitarist, as mentor. Although in time he adopted many different instruments as his mistress, his affection always ran deepest for the guitar. Basically as a self taught musician, Tino was determined to become the fastest guitarist on this planet. Technique was all that mattered. Izzo explains… "But I re-evaluated my objectives when I started getting into pop music. One of the things that I liked about it was its rejection of the more 'Athletic' approach to music. So once I brought my technique up to a level that was acceptable to me, I began discarding the notion of technique as an end in itself. I went back to my blues and rock'n roll roots and rediscovered what I call the 'ONE NOTE'. In other words, it's not so much what you play as how you play it. I now wanted the guitar to serve the melody, not the other way around."
