ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
LENO LANDINI - Harmonica Player and Music Composer.

LENO is the father of the electric harmonica. He has an incredible talent as a music composer as well as a harmonica player - for sure - he's the most creative harmonica player in Italy if not even in the world.

Howling Spirit is Leno’s second CD, (the first one is Broken Harp). Howling Spirit is a compilation of 10 tracks of instrumental music, which carries your soul and mind into nature. He doesn’t need to put words to his music because his music speaks out for itself. His CD of the Howling Spirit has also a 12 page booklet where his artwork is displayed. Each artwork represents each song.

LENO'S BIOGRAPHY
Leno Landini is a soloist harmonica player who often accompanies important artists in concerts, in studios and/or in TV passages, (such as with: Pippo Baudo, Ron, Tony Esposito, Tiro Mancino, Marina Rei, Nino Bonocore, Lorella Cuccarini, Marcello Cirillo, Pippo Pollina – ex Agricantus, etc.). He enriches his professional experiences also with interventions on various soundtracks of documentaries, films and telefilms (" I Grandi Cacciatori" ("The Great Hunters"), " Hawkin's Breed" with Jane Fonda, "Le Donne Non Vogliono Più" ("Women Don't Want Anymore") of Pino Quartullo etc.) which some of them were realized by known Italian composers (Luigi Ceccarelli, Gianni Mazza, Nicola Piovani, Giuseppe Vessicchio, Bacalov etc.). For years, he attended the halls of all those Roman clubs devoted to Jam Sessions and to Live music (Big Mama, Alexander Platz, Caffè Latino, Classico, etc.).

But, above all, his unique nature makes it seem as if he comes out of a tale of adventure. This characterizes his artistic creativity where he created sounds researching deeply inside them. He was also influenced by his solitary travels in Northern Europe. These places were drawn to him, because his instrument (the harmonica) is more familiar there. In these travels meeting with great international artists or even only with the most various "on the road" artists, he knew how to gather the original influence. This makes him unique, out of commercial tendencies, consenting him to feed himself of those images from world of the North; which he then transposed all this in many of his musical themes. Dedicating his life completely to music, his experience does not rise from pedantic academic studies. Completely autodidactic, Leno, different than many musicians that use this instrument, plays the diatonic harmonica with his personal method, exploiting more tonalities contemporarily, in order to reach a wider extension of the harmonica in respect of its conventional use, and therefore, able him to execute more complex melodic phrases. He modifies some of his harmonicas from their original tonalities and therefore, this renders them unique instruments. Eclectic artist, he knew how to electrify the sound of the harmonica (which generally is used acoustically). He managed to extend the notes of the harmonica through a long and deep research of the effects, creating spectral tonalities. These notes create contemporary and evocative sounds, rich of magic; a sort of continuous communication between Rock, Folk, New Age and Progressive Country, where the harmonicas of various caliber play in harmony with electric guitars, violins, percussion, etc. This ductility, regulated by a personality well defined, consents Leno to interact in the history of traditional music, holding up performances of "battle" and improvisation loaded of emotion.

He can also play perfectly acoustically accompanied by the Orchestra of RAI (Italian State TV) at the Festival of San Remo (Marina Rei, Daniela Colace, Nino Bonocuore), without loosing his personal imprint.

Howling Spirit is Leno’s second CD, (the first one is Broken Harp). Howling Spirit is a compilation of 10 tracks of instrumental music, which carries your soul and mind into nature. He doesn’t need to put words to his music because his music speaks out for itself. His CD of the Howling Spirit has also a 12 page booklet where his artwork is displayed.

Unique vision
I was delightfully surprised by this album. The samples, though obviously helpful, did not prepare me for the simple enjoyment I experienced hearing the whole album. You can't go wrong!!
