"Bucato is an album of solo guitar music performed on the 'Giant' Sardinian guitar, which is sized between a conventional guitar and a double bass, and is tuned lower than a standard guitar. Paolo Angeli has taken this folk instrument and has completely re-tooled it: There is a large mechanical claw stuck onto the side of the body of the instrument, which he uses to pluck counter melodies, piano-like hammers, operated by foot pedals strike the strings and lastly, many extra strings as well as 13 pickups and microphones have been added to further extend the variety of what his instrument can do. Bucato is a recording of Angeli and his extraordinary music in concert, recorded without overdubs." An extremely interesting and beautiful album of solo guitar. For fans of: Derek Bailey, Steffen Basho-Junghans, John Fahey, Fred Frith, Henry Kaiser, Hans Reichel and Elliott Sharp.
