They Shoot Notes Don't They!
Tino Aureli is a composer and Italian by origin. Although he has lived in England for the last 30 years, his music has retained a very strong Mediterranean feel for which he is very proud. The blues tinged riffs of his guitar, demonstrates fluid inventiveness and composition flair throughout his music. He takes away the Player's attitude in the composition, and writes music that has it's own logic and reason for being. "They Shoot Notes Don't They!" An album which was conceived in 2002 and released in 2005, from material gathered and noted through the years. It took all this time to complete with a lot of help from my friend Jason Emberton of 'The Music Lounge' studio. Jason has all the skills and talent needed for recording, and only through his guide and patience, I was able to take this project to the end. The result of this 'work' is a collection of 15 tracks of blend world music with a strong jazzy feel which hopefully will give lot of satisfaction to the listener. Tino Aureli's music manages to combine immediacy with certain off the wall unpredictability. You think that you have herd guitar music like this before, and then the music dodge sharp right through an opening of chord progressions completely unexpected. Not so much complicated, just an unexpected choice of chord progressions. The clever arrangements tips, in his music, include tempo fluctuations, unusual chord progressions and a touch of unexpected transpositions. Tino's music has it's roots in more then one period and it is difficult to pigeonhole 'FREE JAZZ' is a good word for it.
