Decades after leading the Italian progressive rock/jazz fusion outfit Nova, guitarist Corrado Rustici is still passionate about exploring the vast sonic possibilities of his instrument. Us ing only treated electric and acoustic guitars, he creates compelling melodies and dynamic mood swings while introducing a vast stylistic repertoire that includes ambient fusion, progressive jazz, ethereal rock, dreamy pop and sweeping classical vibes.
The only outside sounds are handclaps and one soulful lead vocal each by him and Andrew Strong (“The Commitments”). Rustici’s point here is more about emotional connection than showcasing his legendary chops.
