"The true way of progressing through music is to evolve freely, to go forward, not caring what others think, and in this way, together with one's development in music, to harmonize the life of one's soul, one's surroundings, and one's affairs." ~ Hazrat Inayat Khan

Bass guitar and keyboard player Gino Foti is an instrumental fusion artist on Net Dot Music, an independent record label with over four dozen full-length releases.

His catalog explores the relationships between diverse musical traditions, and the dichotomy of rhythm & melody of the bass guitar, primarily by integrating world music sonorities into his jazz-rock palette. He has also composed and arranged albums in classical, meditation, new age, and other instrumental hybrids.
