Joe Diorio: electric guitar
This is the first in a series of five CD reissues from guitar legend Joe Diorio's classic Spitball Records recordings from the mid-70's. Originally released in 1975 on Spitball Records and now available on CD for the first time ever! Includes the original album cover artwork and liner notes exactly as they appeared on the original LP release. Joe performs several standards including Chick Corea's "Windows", Django Reinhardt's "Nuages" as well as the classic songs "Invitation", "A Time for Love" and "Without You". Rounding out the recording are three of Joe's original compositions: "Poem", "India" (inspired by sitarist Ravi Shankar) and "Call to the Center". Joe accompanies himself via multi- tracking on the songs "Windows", "Invitation" and "Without You". All tracks have been digitally remastered using 24-bit digital technology. Art of Life Records is proud to make this long out-of-print recording available to the world once again. Stay tuned for more releases from guitar master Joe Diorio!!
