I love working with Vito because he’s literally a one-man-band! He can play pretty much any instrument, plus he’s an amazing composer, arranger, engineer, and producer. He is even edits video! I rely on Vito’s experience and expertise and he always delivers. Vito is super creative, and can take a kernel of an idea and turn it into a symphony. On top of all this talent, Vito is also a genuine, kind person who cares about his clients and is passionate about his projects.

I had the pleasure of working with Vito on my last album, Recollecting You. One of the songs Vito performed on, “Falling,” won a 2017 Clouzine International Music Award for Best Jazz Song. I have no doubt that Vito’s consummate guitar playing was the key to winning that award. Brilliant is the word for Vito! Not only is he a musical genius capable of performing many styles with ease, Vito is as kind as he is talented. I am truly honored to know him.
JoVito Gregoli is the best Kirtan musician I know, and probably the best musician, period. Working with Vito means It’s All Handled. Need great guitar work? Bass? Sitar? Flute? Other exotic Indian instruments? Running the board? Arranging a song? Even video editing?! Vito can do it all.
He’s loyal and he’s my friend. He’s come through for me over and over again. He’s a relative newcomer to Kirtan (about five years), but, boy, do we need him now. I couldn’t imagine the Bhakti and Kirtan world without him.
Vito is an artist in the truest sense. He was able to comprehend my vision, and elevate it. The last project I hired Vito for had a very tight deadline, and not only was he able to complete it under the wire–he also handled my last-minute adjustments efficiently and without complaint. He is collaborative on all levels, I value his honesty–because he never settles for “good enough.” I felt gently pushed to do my best work and he in turn took what I did and made it even better. Honestly can’t say enough about the process AND the finished product. Thank you, Vito!

Is there anything Vito can’t do? I continue to be in awe of Vito’s creativity, skills, experience and productivity. He is an amazing producer, recording engineer and multi-instrumentalist with a knack for finding the gem in every song and bringing them to life.
Vito and I are co-creating an album of 12 of my original songs. He challenges me to be the best writer and singer I can be. He captures the essence of each song and suggests re-writes to fine-tune the lyric, melody and chords. As a multi-instrumentalist, Vito quickly comes up with guitar licks, bass lines, live drum parts and unique instrumentation that surprise and thrill me. And then masterfully records them! Not only is Vito talented, he is a wonderful person and joy to work with.
I’ve worked with Vito for many years. He has produced all my records and we’ve performed together many times. He really listens to the artists he works with and helps bring the best out of them. His studio is fabulous. It’s a great environment in which to work, very soothing and calming. He is a blast to work with and brings in a stellar product, on time and right on (or even under) budget.
Vito is a professional. He approaches all aspects of music-making with a can-do attitude. He constantly looks for ways to further enrich any project he is working on and is committed to every artist he works with to bring out the very finest. He is stylistically diverse, making it very easy to move between genres and feel completely held in knowledge and expertise. Vito has the ability to think inside AND outside the box. So, if you’re looking for straight ahead, he’s got it. If you’re looking for out of the box, he’s got you there too. As a songwriter himself with a rich background in composition, Vito was able to support me well in pulling together my ideas and bring to life what I envisioned.
Working with Vito was a life-changing experience. He was patient and helped me with my learning curve which I really appreciated. The album exceeded my expectations!
