  Alessandro "Alex" Rosselli is a versatile guitar player from Italy. Fans of instrumental rock will enjoy all of his current recordings. It so happens I have a proclivity for this kind of music so I seek it out. Finding an artist with 5 albums worth of material, and all of it instrumental, for this listener was like being a kid in a (ear) candy store. I was poking around CD Baby one afternoon and started sampling this man's music and was intrigued by what he had to offer.

Rosselli started with Impressions in 2001, and if you are wondering why it is not available on CD Baby its because the album is currently undergoing a remastering and will be re-released. All four of the other titles My Red Guitar, Arlekkino, Moonlight, and Walking Through the Gates, are currently available.

This group of recordings is a good example of all the different moods, tones, atmospheres, and varying compositions that can be created and executed in the realm of the electric six-string. Rosselli takes the nod from Hendrix and all the greats in wide array of genres, including rock, jazz, and fusion. At times he flat out rocks and goes off on a run then decides to drop it down a few notches and play less aggressively allowing the listener to hear the more tasteful and directed side of his playing.

Rosselli does his share of experimentation during the course of five CDs, seeing what kind of sounds he can coax from his axe. For example, in regards to the 2004 release Arlekkino, he states "I wanted to explore different sounds, using more midi-guitar as usual, to create sound effects such as ambient keyboard or melodic solos." Rosselli was not afraid to use today's technologies to help create the sounds he was searching for on his albums.

There is a lot to take in within these five CDs and I think this artist has a lot potential to take things to another level if he stays on this path. I admire him for taking the initiative and putting all this work out there with nothing else to back him but his six-string and some inventiveness in the studio, it is just the man and his guitar and that is as simplistic as it gets. I think for those particular reasons I could really appreciate the things Rosselli is trying to accomplish.
