I've heard Antonio live during recordings at Radio Four in London, as a member of the audience. Hearing him live is something incredible; this CD is the next best thing. What this incredibly talented musician can't do with a guitar is not worth knowing; his fingers fly on the chords and strum a beat while sounds that are a tonic for your soul and uplifting tempo for your mind will sweep you away to somewhere very special - to the influences of Forcione's past and his very current but innovative, original style. You've never heard the guitar like this!

Antonio Forcione has to be my favourite guitarists of all time. My introduction to his music was a live concert with Eduardo Niebla in Nottingham several years ago. It completely blew me away and, since then, I've listened to everything I can of his work. He combines technical brilliance with continuous innovation, without taking himself too seriously. What's he sound like? A Spanish guitar style is strongly apparent but most of what he performs he writes himself and, like many brilliant musicians (Andy Sheppard springs to mind), he is often at his best when feeding off others.
A large part of his work is collaborative; "Ghetto Paradise" takes this to sublime heights. It's an album which is very hard to pigeonhole but it certainly has strong elements of jazz with Spanish and eastern influences. I love it. Every track is a new mood and he has the confidence to give free reign to his co-musicians, particularly to Trilok Gurtu on various percussion and Roberto Manzin on sax. It's a bit invidious to select particular tracks but 'Indian Café' and 'Horserun' are certainly belters. All in all, a CD I couldn't do without and it's often top of my all-time list - with two or three competitors.
I hope he's as nice a guy as he appears to be.

This album is a beautiful audiophile recording and more an incredible collect of rithms and fantastic licks from Forcione and Gurtu. A must have album for any serious audiophile lover. It remind me of best Oregon work, with a spicy mediterranean feeling. 5 star are for the recording quality. 4 for the artistic side.

As mentioned in the previous review, Forcione is seriously hot stuff live - don't miss him, if you ever get the chance. It will be the most exciting evening of guitar music and improvisation you've heard in years!
If you miss the live performance, this album is one way to appreciate the sheer musical virtuosity of the man, regardless of what style he happens to be playing or the musicians playing with him. The range is breathtaking, starting with the jazzy and funky Maurizio's Party, then going via the neo-Spanish classical (Alhambra), Eastern (Indian Cafe), Italian salsa (Salsa & Basilico) through to the comatose (Serena.)
Enjoy!
