Album Notes
One of the most versatile contemporary saxophonists is undoubtedly Dino Govoni. Govoni learned from two tenor sax greats, Jerry Bergonzi and George Garzone, and furthered his studies by attending Berklee College of Music, studying with the late, great Joe Viola. Govoni hit the road right away with a variety of musical outfits, playing and/or recording with such diverse artists as Grover Washington Jr., Randy Brecker, Eddie Gomez, Billy Hart, Terri Lyne Carrington, Larry Goldings, Bill Stewart, Arturo Sandoval, Cindy Blackman, Joe Beck, Jason Miles, Prassana, Terence Trent D'Arby, Robben Ford, Tom Brechtlein, Ed Spargo, Mel Tormé, the Manhattan Transfer, the Boston Pops, the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, the John Allmark Jazz Orchestra and Frankie Valli among others.

Govoni has two recordings under his own name to date, “Breakin' Out”, and "In the Library", both on the Whaling City Sound label. Dino has also been a side man on many sessions and recordings.

Dino is currently at work on a new recording with the hopes of having it finished for the end of 2007. Keep an "ear open"!

In addition to his performances, Govoni is currently on the faculty at Berklee College of Music (as an assistant professor of woodwinds) and lives in New York where he teaches students privately, as well. ~Greg Prato

Excellent tenor sax player
Dino Govoni is an outstanding tenor player. Try this CD to believe!

Damiano Fusco

A great master of music
I bought this CD after listening to some of the samples listed here on CD Baby, and I was expecting to hear some good music. Then, I received the CD, and just after listening to the first tune, "In Your Absence", I came undoubtedly to the conclusion that this is much more than good music: this is art at its best. There are no labels that apply: this is just great music from a great music master. The guy takes off from a solid background on modern jazz improvisation and keeps telling the story with an amazing freshness and ability. There no words that can explain music at its best. And here I've already run out of words. I'll just keep listening to the CD, and just let this music take me through the most beautiful places of the imagination. Good job, Dino. Keep doing it. I'm sure we will hear even greater things from you.
