"The main problem associated with reviewing Tino Gonzales is that all of his recordings are so exceptional that it is difficult to decide just which one to review. His work is consistently excellent and he seems in fact to be incapable of making a poor recording. If you like blues/rock guitar, he is about as good as it gets. Tino Gonzales: A Heart Full of Blues." "A Heart full of Blues has a refreshing approach: inspired singing, sandpaper guitar work and the support of first rate musicians, such as the perennial Harvey Brooks on bass, honor a good piece of Blues-oriented Americana."
'A World of Blues,' Tino Gonzales’ fourth CD for Dixiefrog, pays tribute to the Old World roots of the blues, weaving together gypsy accordion, African and world percussion.
Documentary telling the story of Kenyan athlete David Rudisha, the greatest 800m runner the world has ever seen, and his highly unusual coach, the Irish Catholic missionary Brother Colm O'Connell. Shot over ten years, the film begins in 2005 when we first meet David as a shy 16-year-old arriving at a training camp with nothing but a dream of emulating his father's 1968 Olympic silver medal. The camp is run by the unlikeliest of coaches, missionary and amateur athletics trainer Brother Colm, who quickly spots his talent. Together they embark on a journey through injury, disappointment and terror when violence sweeps through the country in the aftermath of the 2008 election, all the way to the 2012 Olympics and the greatest 800m race the world has ever seen. With unprecedented access and featuring interviews with Seb Coe and Steve Cram, this is an epic, magical and uplifting tale that reaches far beyond sport.
