"When you listen to Jack DeSalvo, it’s immediately apparent that he has an enormous musical vocabulary. Renaissance classical, garage rock, straight ahead jazz, downtown skronk and traditional mandolin melodies are all part of his musical DNA. But when you hear DeSalvo improvise on classical guitar, you’re hearing music of that precise moment. He has many influences (and there are as many poets, philosophers and thinkers as there are musicians)..." – Mitch Goldman, WKCR

Jack DeSalvo may be one of the most unique guitarists on the planet. His synthesis of classical and jazz guitar techniques allows him to play long, intricate lines while still adding chords. No doubt due to his pianist influences like Keith Jarrett. But the real story is subtle melodic development. All emanating from years of study of jazz, classical and world folk music repertoire and a focus on both the pure spirit of improvisation in the service of creating beautiful music as well as being a prolific composer. DeSalvo’s music is nothing short of visionary as the music here emphatically shows. The exquisite beauty of the performances bring it all home.
