Steve Saluto is an Italian guitarist that picked up his first guitar when he was 15. At first he played
Jazz, but he took up playing rock when he heard the Eddie Van Halen solo in the Michael Jackson
song “Beat It”.
‘Resurrection’ is his latest solo offering and it’s hard to put a label on his music. He’s everything in
melodic rock, bluesy rock and funky rock. We get 16 songs that are very varied and Steve is a
fabulous guitar player, that’s for sure, however the songs lacks a catchy chorus in my humble
opinion. But do have in mind that I’m not home ground when it comes to bluesy and funky rock.
There are only a few tracks that I really dig. Album opener “Too Late” and the excellent instrumental
track “Train Jumpers” and the laid back acoustic song “Birds” are worth mentioning. It’s a pleasure to listen to a guitarist who really knows his way around an instrument, right?
There’s a special guest here on 8 tracks... namely Mr. Richie Kotzen and he’s doing a great job in my
Fans of bluesy and varied rock could give it a listen.
