    Default Blues, Stomps, & Rags #11

    Some folks say the Italia blues ain't bad,
    Some folks say the Italia blues ain't bad,
    But them Italian blues are the worst I ever had.


    Lino Muio is a contemporary blues-mandolin player, living in Italy, who uses a powerful, electric approach. I first learned about him on a CD-sales website, and haven't found out much about him, except that he started on guitar, and played with the Italian blues band, The Blue Stuff. He began his recording career in 1999, and made blues mandolin recordings, Mandolin Blues in 2012 and Mandolin Blues -- The Piano Sessions in 2016. Muio is younger that any contemporary blues mandolinists I've presented before, but no kid. (If you know more about Lino Muio, please share.)

    At this time (June 10, 2018), a free MP3 by Lino Muio is available at Mandolin Cafe, with a link to purchase his newest CD, along with other people's MP3's and sales links:

    Here is Muio, playing the blues as part of a trio. If the link doesn't work, on YouTube, search for "Mandolin Blues -- Dayjob."

    Here's another video, in which he's in a duo with a guitar player, playing samplings of three songs, "Proud Mary", "People Get Ready", and, I assume, "Keepin' Me Satisfied," the most bluesy piece, at about 2:34 -- but it's all good. If the link doesn't work, on YouTube, search for "Mandolin Blues - The Soul Sessions (Max Prandi & Lino Muoio)".

    That's a nice tasteful mandolin solo in "People Get Ready" (starts at 2:28, ends at 2:47), just wish there was more of it.
