ABOVE THE CLOUDS

ANTHONY RUFO'S LATEST CD RELEASE

"Above The Clouds" CD
By Author And Musician Joan Damico

Dramatically diverse, compelling, provocative, inspirational, viscerally "hot", alluring, raw, passionate and driven are among a few of the qualities that have burst open the "floodgates" cascading Anthony Rufo's technical prowess and musical creativity in his newest and greatest CD, "Above the Clouds." For Rufo, a third degree black belt in karate, and a Sensei of the martial arts, getting in the "flow" of a project and tapping into the "ki" or internal power is his life line and the key to his natural spontaneity, and somewhat unorthodox musical style. Rufo states that "Emptying one's cup to grow and evolve" is his secret to keeping his vision about music young, fresh, different and alive.
Always a versatile musician, he certainly has evolved since the days of "Makin" Waves". "Above the Clouds" is more than a CD. Outside of it's mesmerizing musical wizardry, it is Rufo's "life works"- a philosophy of social justice and passion, freedom and fun, inspiration and respect, introspection, natural beauty and simplicity; all values that Rufo holds close to his heart. His gifted perceptiveness enables him to musically create and then capture and hold emotions hostage for a few minutes as they reveal themselves to the listener with conviction and clarity. With high energy, an unyielding commitment and obsessive abandon, Rufo can create great melodic and literary depth that captivates an audience of the most critical musicians and listeners alike.
