Nicola Costa: American Electric Roots Home From Rome

(image: www.nicolacosta.com)
Guitarist, Nicola Costa's playing sounds like an Austin, Texas musician who travels to L.A. a lot. However, Rome, Italy is actually home for Costa whose latest recording "Electric Roots" is a Strat-o-Brother pick for 2007, and blasting my ears this very moment!

If you like Johnny A, Robben Ford, David Grissom and Michael Lee Firkins, with heaping portions of fat "Tore Down House" Strat tones and tasteful twists, you absolutely must get Electric Roots! Yeah, the Scott Henderson influence shows up too. So what more can you ask for?

Not simply a shredder or a fusion player, Costa synthesizes Blues, Funk & American Roots with Progressive guitar styles, and just goes over the top with TASTE!

Each of the ten tunes on Electric Roots is a gem for combining sounds, styles and guitar playing approaches from a spectrum I can only describe as a road trip from Texas to California. Costa also wears all three hats of producer, engineer and guitarist.
