Antonio Forcione - nylon and steel string guitars, and percussion
Sabina Kabongo (Zap Mamma) - vocals
Julian Arguelles - saxophone
Malcolm Crease - double bass
Bosco de Oliveira - percussion All music written, arranged and produced by Antonio Forcione, Bucks Music, except composed by Whitfield/Strong, Stone Agate Music and composed by Lennon/McCartney, Northern Songs. Antonio's unique exploration of the guitar and his seemingly endless stream of ideas make him one of the most exhilarating composers and performers on the music scene today. Dedicato shows him at his very best, drawing on his many influences from Jazz to African, Classical to Brazilian moods, all weaving with ease throughout this fine collection. "Antonio possesses all the qualities of a great artist - a complete command of his instrument, a vast knowledge and respect for all musical traditions, the charisma to communicate his music to an audience, and the ability never to allow the above fine qualities to get in the way of his creative processes. Antonio is a virtuoso who plays from the heart." Martin Taylor.
