Ric DelNero & CHROMATICA "I have been at fusion and prog reviews since 1997 and listened critically to more CDs than I can possibly remember clearly, so . . . every once in awhile, my ears perk up and my well-fed fusion beast inside growls approval before it lays back down contented in nostalgic dreams of the finer riffs of yore. Ric DelNero and Chromatica's Out of Bounds was just spinning when my jaded brain awoke to well above average and very listenable fusion axe, bass, drums and synthy-axed embellishings. Holdsworth fans and dreamy proggers will enjoy this all instrumental offering with nary bit of filler in the 11-track CD. Recommended fusion."
Ric DelNero & CHROMATICA "This trio from the Bloomsburg, PA area, describes their music as "electric jazz." They return to Homegrown Music with a new collection of their original instrumental music, featuring creative compositions and fine guitar work.
Ric DelNero & CHROMATICA "Played a distinctive style of jazz, marked by interesting and unusual chording and chord shifts, executed with tight and sharp musicianship."
Ric DelNero & CHROMATICA "The trio are excellent musicians. The whole record has a very spontaneous feel, as if they improvised the entire album in the studio. This should make for an exciting live performance."
Ric DelNero and CHROMATICA Talented Bloomsburg jazz-rock fusion guitarist has been appearing on the series going back to the late 1980s. After an extended absence, he returns with a new set of first-rate original instrumental compositions, performed in an electric trio setting.
Ric DelNero & CHROMATICA "Very unique style and sound! I hope to witness Chromatica again sometime soon!"
Ric Del Nero lived up to the Madhatter top hat that adorned his head, obviously on a quest to go where no guitarist has gone before, exploring regions of his guitar synth that few have yet to discover. He showed extreme discipline in not turning his performance into a litany of McLaughlin-influenced runs, and left us wanting just a mere more sampling of his playing skills. But, it was enough for everyone to realize that they were watching one of the finest guitarists this region has ever known--and watching him perform in a style that he is obviously impassioned about.
