Tom Casino was born in a shotgun shack somewhere east of Little Italy to a hot-headed mama and a tough-guy dad. Handsome as hell and sly as a one-eyed coyote, he was influenced musically in a damn serious way at the age of ten while learning to play an old Dobro, a gift from his beloved Uncle Zito. Young Tom even then had the notion and fire in his gut to play and make it big on the jazz scene, when the British Invasion came along and hit himlike a truckload of tortellini. The great great greats -- Mike Bloomfield, Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Albert King, Lightning Hopkins – tweaked his teenage brain and made him want to lay down the nastiest, grittiest guitar licks the world has ever heard. Ask yourself: What does a dude like Tom Casino sound like? Well, for starters, here''s a snapshot: pour yourself a shot of fine aged scotch whiskey, throw in some tangy tabasco, then sprinkle in a little dirt and grease and grime and grit from the road scraped off of the bottom of your boots, and wallah, there you have it. Oh yeah, baby, that''s just what we like. Tom''s tunes spike with imagination and realism and deliver spanking bad humor along with a smoky mix of melodic changes, sweeping smooth rhythms, and razor-sharp solos that elevate the earbuds with devilish passion. Tom has played with many recording artists in the past, but now he''s stepping out on his own, offering you, lucky listener, his own unique guitar stylings for your personal pleasure. Deep within the heart of Tom Casino is a soul that must be shared, hell, even used and abused, to really be enjoyed.
Featured on "Chopstick Blues" is the incredible Dale Ockermen from the Doobie Brothers, who lights! it! up! on keyboards. Tom''s insanely gifted producer and co-writer, Terry "Pit Boss" Carleton, keeps the rhythms high and tight on percussion and low and slow on bass. On vocals, Pamela "Lady Luck" Hennings delivers a smooth duet on "I Need You," harmony on "Chop Stick Blues," and brings it home with love and a velvet hammer in "Lipstick and Gin," a zany tune she co-wrote with the boys. Huge thanks to Eddie "El Gato" Becerra for the great sax work on "Be My Lady," and the unbelievably smoking hot Reggie Rockinelli, for pulverizing the piano on "I Need You."
Between all the gambling, sessions, gigs, fine wine, hard work, good times and wild women, Tom has been exuberantly writing, imagining and developing this LP for the past incredible three years. He hoists a toast, waves his hands and says, "Hot-ch-ch-chaa, baby! You''re gonna love me or maybe even a little bit not, but in the end, I know yous guys is gonna love me!" Get "Tom Casino Lucky In Love" today, and see for yourself just how hot and wild that Italian guitar love thing can be!
