Album Notes
Antonio Restucci was born in Santiago, Chile in 1956. A guitar and mandolin virtuoso, Antonio began his career at the age of 15, recording his first LP with Brazilian composer Manduka. In 1986, his band La Hebra won Radio Beethoven's Best Latin Jazz Band award. He toured Europe for several years playing with Amalgama, Maria del Mar Bonet and Joan Manuel Serrat, all of whom influenced his work. In Chile, he participated in several projects along with local musicians Joe Vasconcellos, Francesca Ancarola, and Los Tres, with whom he traveled to the US to record an MTV Unplugged program.

Antonio has developed his own unique contemporary composition style, blending the folk sounds of his South American roots with Flamenco and Classical Spanish guitar, Latin Jazz and Jazz Rock. He has recorded five solo CDs prior to his debut with Petroglyph Records and has been influencial on many others. He has been recognized as one of the best musicians in Chile. In 1998, Restucci was named Best Guitarist of the Decade by Sociedad del Derecho de Autor (SCD). In 2000, he won the Altazor Award for his album "Vetas" as the best "Jazz-Alternative Record" of the year.

In 2001, he moved to Barcelona, Spain, where he joined the band Ojos de Brujo with whom he toured Europe. He recently signed a recording contract with Taos, New Mexico label Petroglyph Records with whom he completed this, his sixth solo album, "Crisol." Crisol is Spanish for the crucibles used for melting precious metals and is an appropriate title since this album masterfully melts together sounds and styles from Spain, South America, India, the Middle East and more. Truly a world-class musician with a commanding presence, Antonio Restucci regularly blows his audiences away.

Every bit as good as I thought it would be!
We bought this CD as part of our creative grant, as inspirational material, and Crisol has not failed to inspire. Everything is top-notch and tasteful: composition, arrangements, recording quality, graphics... we will definitely tell others about Antonio Restucci.

Full of imagination, inspiring melodies!
Beautifully recorded - very good sound.
Well-thought instrumentation and arrangements.

Lars Ekland

Full of surprise, Antonio Restucci delivers!!
What's not to love about it? This guy is going places. He's getting airplay on the satellite radio channels, for that I'm in awe. You gotta be dang good to break into that market. Now I just want to see this guy in concert!! Please Antonio, if you come to North America, please play Raleigh North Carolina area!!!

Tamara Turner, CD Baby

A gorgeous mixture of jazz, world music, and classical undertones. Wherever jazz fusion has a reputation of being watered down, Restucci invigorates these perceptions with his rhythmically rich and harmonically broad works. Using instruments with innovation and insight, giving new voice to the mandolin, violin, and guitar while carefully threading the responsive call of the udu and tabla, he sets a flowering horizon of melodic suggestion. His music reminds one of light beams dancing through window sills. With harmonic and melodic language that sings of Spain, India, the Middle East and South America, Restucci has compiled quite a palette of color, imagery and sensation.
