Born: January 28, 1951
Shinobu Ito was born in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, on January 28, 1951. While a young boy, he was interested in American pop songs, so his father bought him a guitar and gave him lessons. Shinobu devoted great efforts to his study of the guitar and eventually developed an ambition to become a noted guitarist in the future. In junior high school, he organized his own pop music group and performed at various musical events. He became interested in jazz guitar during his high school days when he heard Wes Montgomery. While attending Tokai University, Shinobu studied with the respected guitar teacher, Ikuo Shiozaki, and became a member of the university’s Jazz Circle. He also began his professional career at this time, performing at clubs and on recordings....
