Tino Aureli is a composer and Italian by origin.He has composed dozens of songs and instrumentals. He is also a composer/producer for film & TV, his niche is Modern Jazz, (experimental & new age) and dramatic orchestral works. Although he has lived in England for the past 35 years, his music has retained a very strong Mediterranean feel for which he is very proud. His music experience spans a long time and he has been playing guitar since he was 14 years of age. Tino interest in Jazz begins in the club dives of Rome in the 60's where straightahead jazz was the norm, he got acquainted in the complexities of the Jazz of k. Burrell, Charlie Christian, Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass, George Benson, Fausto Papetti, and Oscar Peterson and in the 70's with the jazz of Miles Davies,Ornette Coleman,J. Scofield,Sun Ra and Weather Report. Regarded as a highly versatile and creative player, he was in much demand in the clubs circuit, giving him the opportunity of travelling all over Europe. Tino began writing is own music at a very early stage of is career. On the back of his experiences, his first solo recording project was born. In 2000 with the production of his first album 'They shoot notes don't they!' (Available trough iTunes, distributed by CD Baby USA) and released in 2005, is recording career began. A second album 'Acquarello' (also available trough iTunes and distributed by CD Baby USA) was produced in 2005 and released in 2006, where the evolution in Tino's music is very evident. A third album 'REBUS' (to be released in 2008) continues the evolution, which will be followed by is forth, now in production, called 'RGATA'...... and the evolution goes on! The blues tinged rifts of his guitar, demonstrates flair and a fluid inventiveness from beginning to end. In the composition, he takes away the players attitude, and writes music that has it's own logic and reason for being. Tino 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 tracks 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. Tinos music has it's roots in more then one period and it is difficult to pigeonhole, FREE JAZZ is a good word for it. 'Acquarello' is packed with new material never released before, both compliments and enhances Tino's original musical project. The beat was born in the heart of the Mediterranean and is blended with musical styles from around the globe.'Acquarello',is an intriguing musical prospect with an unusual use of scales and melody. Enjoyably smooth structure and arrangements with a glossy guitar scrawled artfully across. I take this opportunity to thank my friends: Richard Rodin for his rhythm chordal work contribution in 'Marzipan' Jason Emberton for the input of extra drums in some of the tracks.
