ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ALDO's music transports the listener to some other place - where the sky rests upon the ocean, the ocean glides onto the beach, and the wind is all but a gentle breeze. The artist's first creation "Close To You" released in 2003 continues to receive 5 stars ratings, the song "Silent Star" received US national radio play on the syndicated radio program "Echoes", the music from "Close To You" continues to receive air play on a variety of Internet radio stations, International satellite radio, and public radio stations within the US and abroad.

ALDO's music contains a light and mellow blend of acoustic and nylon string guitars accompanied by some slow grooves, textures, and natural sounds, perfect in setting the right atmosphere for romance, passion, or deep relaxation!

Wind and Wire, reviewer Bill Binkelman writes: This album is a first rate exploration of acoustic guitar instrumentals; I was consistently impressed by both ALDO's production and his winning ways with melody, song structure, and, of course, his guitar playing; I highly recommend this CD; Over the years, I've seen a lot of good-to-great talent go unrecognized, but ALDO's "Close To You" is simply too good to be ignored.

ALDO received his classical guitar training and music degree under the direction of professor Glenn Lyons at the University of West Chester. ALDO uses a combination of classical and finger style techniques to achieve his unique guitar sound. He classifies his musical style as "Contemporary Classical Guitar" because the music he creates departs from traditional classical guitar music; ALDO's original style has been described by others as having the following elements:

'Mediterranean', 'Italian', 'Spanish', 'Latin', 'New Age', 'Smooth Jazz' 'Spiritual', 'Romantic', 'Relaxing', 'Passion'

mellow mood, great for relaxing.
Great overall quality on the recording. Aldo's picking style is really out front. His classical guitar phrases embody the whole mood of the album. If you like the works of Jessie Cook or Peppino D'Agustino, you should really consider ALDO's new cd.

Cannot say enough about how much I enjoy this CD!
I listen to this CD making dinner, relaxing at the beach, or just sitting on my deck with a glass of wine. We love it and so do my in-laws.
It's very unique that people are always asking about the artist. I've been asked to bring this CD to a few parties.
GET YOUR OWN!
