Here's a CD that remembers that before the guitar-there was the Mandolin, and the banjo. Fortunately, one of the great old Bluesmen never gave up his instrument to play the guitar-Yank Rachell. And I believe Yank's music is a big inspiration for Lino. He is a guy who really plays this instrument very well, with no problem showcasing the mandolin at the front of the band-and it sounds well up there in his hands. He's put together a very good listening collection, with various styles of music in the mix. This is a CD that's easy to listen to, and Americans need to take note of this talented Italian Bluesman, and this group of talented musicians. (And all the vocals are english. Way to go Mr. Muoio, I'm now a fan of yours, and the mandolin lives on in the modern blues!
