Gambetta, Beppe - Blu Di Genova

SKU 08-FY8054
Beppe Gambetta is a great exponent of the flatpicking style, a technique he has imported and creatively introduced into his interpretations. On his new CD Beppe has fun musically skipping back and forth across the Atlantic divide with a repertoire that moves from Italian folk to US roots music...Gambetta sets about remodelling and giving new form to the European and American materials he grew up with, often interweaving them with rare skill. Surrounding himself with a number of prestigious and versatile guest musicians both Italian and international, Gambetta on six and twelve string guitar reinvents a dozen pieces which he instils with great emotive power. Featured are: Oregon bassist Glen Moore, Phil Neuman's bass tuba, the Byrds' Gene Parsons and guitarist Dan Crary, a real maestro of the guitar. Equally important are the contributions of the numerous Italian musicians who have been working with Gambetta for years: Mario Arcai on oboe, Martino Coppo on mandolin and percussionist Marco Fadda. To say nothing of the warm tones of son Filippo Gambetta's melodeon, an instrument he has made his own despite his relatively young age. [Felmay]
