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

Attention all listeners! Anthony Rufo has released his new CD, "Above the Clouds" where he takes his imagination and creativity to the maximum and showcases the best of his lyrical and musical talents. Rufo, a karate "affection ado" relates his musical journey to the ancient philosophy of the martial arts..............

Water is Formless.
When you pour it into a cup, it becomes that cup.....
When you pour it into a jar
It becomes that jar
Now water can "crash" or water can "flow"
Be like water my friend, be like water............Bruce Lee

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.



Intelligent.....Adventurous.....Free Spirited....Honest........Inspirational and Electric are just a few words to describe the amazing and passionate style of Anthony Rufo's music. His profoundly understated and distinctive talents make his eclectic approach to writing and performing music a harmonic treat for audiences of all ages. Anthony was featured in September 2008 Guitar Player magazine and has had his music licensed in various businesses and venues. In his first CD, "Makin' Waves," Rufo showcases his keen ability and "heartfelt drive" to create moods, awaken emotions and paint pictures without the use of words. Using the guitar, piano, B-3 Hammond Organ, saxophone and a blend of rich and rockin' sound effects, Rufo tells his story by using a variety of musical styles. From new-age fusion to the red hot sounds of heavy metal, Rufo puts his heart and soul into every note he plays"Above the Clouds", Rufo's second CD is another testimony to the talents of this versatile musician. Here, both instrumental and vocal songs are showcased.
