Joe Diorio Trio - Stateside

Joe Diorio has long been a major musician, both as a soloing guitarist and as an educator. He has recorded extensively for the Italian Ram label, so Stateside, put out by his own private company, is his fist American release in some time. Teamed with bassist Bob Magnusson and drummer Jim Plank, Diorio stretches out on eight familiar standards. Although some listeners may feel that there is little new to be played on such tunes as "Alone Together," "Darn That Dream," and "I Thought About You," the trio's close interplay and the guitarist's adventurous musical personality frequently push the songs into fresh areas. The melodies are always kept in mind even as Diorio comes up with interesting new ideas. It is also quite instructive to hear how the three musicians frequently think as one, reacting instantly to any changes in direction and making the results sound logical and quite natural.
