? In his debut album 'Scripta Manent' Gìo takes the listener on a musical journey through out the continents. For his extensive international experience, and modern vision, one would say ' Gio's guitar has no-barriers'. ? '...I was about Ten when I fell in love with music, and the love story has not ended since. This incredible journey has taken me around the world and has given me the chance to meet, play, and interact with many talented musicians. I've been enriched by wonderful experiences that have helped me to understand what truly defines the essence of a person's soul.' ....and the soul is definitely the common element throughout the entire record. Starting with the Acid-Jazz Funk influences of 'And on this Light note' to the sentimental and Brazilian influenced 'Mio Amor' to the rock edge of 'Squartazz' your musical panorama will be spiced. If you are a guitar lover or Nu-Jazz enthusiast you'll be delight by the virtuoso-tasteful solos in the record without loosing a strong sense of melody. Imagine a crossover between George Benson, Larry Carlton, and Santana 'with a Flamenco twist,' add a touch of modern fusion, and the result is a style of music that is entirely Gio's. The band present on this record is a unit deserving international recognition since most of them have experienced world tours with Major acts and 'will do' the rest by delighting your ears with some 'high-energy' rhythm section. The song 'Something like love' will introduce the more smooth-Jazz aspect of this record where Gio is dueling and playing around the beautiful saxophone performance given by his last guest. A quite versatile record for the open minded listener, enjoy it .
